Explanation of cPanel Hosting

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offers on the present web hosting market are supplied by a very insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing niche, which furnishes an enormous quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the whole website hosting market supply literally the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP option. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just a regular guy who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web site creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any website hosting alternative you can pick? Sure there is, at present there are more than two hundred thousand hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brand names across the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly met all web hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign Number One: A stupid domain folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, however, be extremely attentive not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the web server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is located)
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)
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)

Are you growing nonplussed? We positively are!

Weakness No.2: The same email folder system

The electronic mail folder structure on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin guys strongly strengthen their belief in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Inconvenience No.3: An absolute shortage of domain administration menus

Do we have to cite the thorough lack of a contemporary domain name management platform - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois info, secure the Whois info, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a gigantic weakness. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Predicament Number 4: Multiple login places (min 2, max 3)

How about the demand for an additional login to avail of the billing, domain and technical support administration menu? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based hosting vendor. At times, based on the invoicing system (particularly built for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel hosting vendor is availing of, the enthusiastic clients can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain management tool; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Problem Number Five: 120+ website hosting Control Panel areas to get to know... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them promptly... That's way too insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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