cPanel Web Hosting Unveiled

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel website hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting marketplace are provided by a very insubstantial business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-sized business segment, which furnishes a vast quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing exactly the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace supply one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "website hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The website hosting "variety" and the hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different hosting brand names. Assume you are simply a normal bloke who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web hosting option you can settle on? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 website hosting providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brands around the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the present website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps satisfied all website hosting industry prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness No.1: An idiotic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely attentive not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove 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 placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder structure 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 name)
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)

Are you growing confused? We unquestionably are!

Drawback Number Two: The very same email folder system

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly enhance their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to muck things up too seriously.

Disadvantage No.3: A thorough absence of domain name manipulation interfaces

Do we have to point out the sheer deficiency of a contemporary domain name administration menu - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" interface at all. That's an immense problem. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Problem Number Four: Many login places (minimum two, max three)

What about the demand for an extra login to access the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support management menu? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel website hosting distributor. Now and then, based on the invoicing transaction platform (particularly developed for cPanel only) the cPanel website hosting company is using, the eager users can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain name administration system; 2: the ticket support GUI), ending up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Weak Side No.5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP departments to get familiar with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them fast... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting suppliers:

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