How Does cPanel Hosting Operate?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offerings on the current web hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insubstantial marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-sized business segment, which provides a great quantity of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing precisely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace offer literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/Control Panel choice. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, note that one...

200k "web hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only a normal bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 website hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different hosting brand names all over the world will give you the very same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the current website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly satisfied most website hosting business prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side Number One: A laughable domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very cautious not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub 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 hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you becoming perplexed? We undoubtedly are!

Weak Point No.2: The very same mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly strengthen their faith in God when tackling the email folders on the email server, hoping not to screw things up too seriously.

Negative Point Number Three: An utter deficiency of domain name administration GUIs

Do we have to refer to the thorough lack of a modern domain management user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois info, protect the Whois information, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a vast shortcoming. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...

Weak Point Number Four: Numerous user login places (minimum two, max 3)

How about the demand for another login to use the billing transaction, domain name and tech support administration section? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web hosting distributor. At times, depending on the billing transaction system (principally designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting corporation is availing of, the earnest users can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel departments to become familiar with... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting CP. It's a superb idea to get familiar with each of them. And you'd better become familiar with them briskly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting suppliers:

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one as well...
