What Does cPanel Web Hosting Represent?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel hosting offers on today's website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insignificant business segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-size business segment, which provides a great number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying precisely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the entire web hosting market provide one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200k "hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely an average chap who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web site development processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web pages. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting option you can decide upon? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k website hosting suppliers in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brands across the world will give you exactly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on the present hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably covered most website hosting business preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side Number 1: A foolish domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next 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 remove on the hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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)
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)

Are you becoming perplexed? We unquestionably are!

Disadvantage Number 2: The same electronic mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly increase their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the email server, hoping not to mess things up too fatally.

Weakness No.3: A total absence of domain management user interfaces

Do we have to mention the total deficiency of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois details, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a gigantic shortcoming. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Weakness Number 4: Multiple user login locations (min two, maximum three)

What about the need for an additional login to make use of the billing, domain name and tech support administration tool? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based hosting vendor. Now and then, on the basis of the billing system (particularly intended for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting service provider is utilizing, the devoted customers can wind up with two extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration software; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: More than one hundred and twenty CP departments to become familiar with... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the website hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better get to know them briskly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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