cPanel Hosting Clarified

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel hosting offers on the present hosting market are generated by a quite unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small marketing segment, which supplies an enormous number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing exactly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offers on the whole web hosting market furnish absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP option. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

The hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only a normal guy who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web page creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting alternative you can opt for? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200,000 website hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands all over the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly fulfilled most hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Predicament Number 1: A laughable domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra watchful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular 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 domains, please. See for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here is placed)
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 name)
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 growing disorientated? We surely are!

Negative Aspect No.2: The same mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder structure on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly reinforce their faith in God when tackling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to mess things up too irreparably.

Negative Aspect No.3: An absolute shortage of domain name administration options

Do we need to point out the utter shortage of a contemporary domain manipulation tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois information, secure the Whois details, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a huge inconvenience. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...

Predicament No.4: Many user login places (min two, max three)

What about the necessity for an extra login to utilize the billing transaction, domain name and tech support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel hosting corporation. Occasionally, based on the invoicing system (particularly made for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting vendor is availing of, the enthusiastic customers can end up with two extra login places (1: the billing/domain name management tool; 2: the ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Weak Side Number Five: 120+ CP sections to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better get to know them swiftly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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