How does cpanel-based site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the present webspace hosting marketplace are generated by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a kind of a small-sized marketing segment, which generates a vast number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying exactly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the site hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace offer the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web space hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200k "web page hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named

The web page hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web page hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply an average chap who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site development processes and the webspace hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and websites . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web site hosting option you can choose? Of course there is, right now there are more than 200,000 webspace hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different hosting brands across the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the contemporary website hosting market is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly answered most website hosting market demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness Number One: A laughable domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, though, be very attentive not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to delete on the web server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you getting baffled? We undoubtedly are!

Inconvenience Number Two: The very same email folder system

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly increase their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too seriously.

Predicament Number 3: A sheer deficiency of domain manipulation menus

Do we have to mention the entire shortage of a modern domain management menu - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois details, shield the Whois details, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a vast drawback. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Point No.4: Multiple user login places (min 2, maximum three)

What about the need for an additional login to make use of the billing, domain and tech support management interface? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web page hosting provider. Occasionally, based on the invoicing transaction system (principally invented for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is utilizing, the ardent customers can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain administration tool; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), ending up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: More than 120 webspace hosting Control Panel sections to get acquainted with... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them swiftly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based webspace hosting providers:

As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
