How Does cPanel Hosting Work?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the current website hosting market are provided by a quite inconsiderable business segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small business segment, which provides an enormous number of different web hosting brand names, yet providing strictly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the entire hosting marketplace supply exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are alike. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "website hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The website hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an ordinary guy who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the website development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web pages. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting variant you can pick? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200k web hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the present website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably met most hosting industry requirements. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side No.1: An imbecilic domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely attentive not to erase completely 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 very easy to delete on the web server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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)
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 getting baffled? We definitely are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The same e-mail folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly reinforce their faith in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Weakness No.3: A total shortage of domain manipulation user interfaces

Do we need to refer to the thorough lack of a contemporary domain management tool - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, change domains' Whois info, secure the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" interface at all. That's a great drawback. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Negative Aspect No.4: Many login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

What about the need for an additional login to make use of the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support administration interface? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting firm. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing system (particularly developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel website hosting supplier is using, the zealous clients can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain name management user interface; 2: the ticket support GUI), winding up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Weak Side No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP sections to get to know... promptly

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up briskly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting companies:

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