How does cpanel web site hosting work?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on today's web space hosting marketplace are generated by a very insubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web site hosting is a type of a small business segment, which generates an immense quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing the very same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the site hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace provide the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/web space hosting Control Panel option. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "site hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The site hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different site hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply a regular person who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, now there are more than 200k web space hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web site hosting brands around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the contemporary hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a big strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably answered all web space hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Point Number 1: An imbecilic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extremely cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the web server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder system is:

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

Are you getting confused? We positively are!

Negative Sign Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder structure

The mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly enhance their faith in God when managing the email folders on the email server, hoping not to botch things up too badly.

Inconvenience Number 3: An entire deficiency of domain administration tools

Do we have to bring up the complete shortage of a contemporary domain manipulation interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois information, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a considerable inconvenience. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...

Predicament Number 4: Many login locations (minimum two, maximum three)

What about the need for another login to avail of the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration software solution? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web page hosting supplier. At times, depending on the invoice transaction tool (principally created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting distributor is making use of, the keen clients can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration GUI; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel menus to pick up... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ menus inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them rapidly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web page hosting distributors:

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