What Indeed is cPanel Web Hosting?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on the present-day website hosting market are furnished by a quite insubstantial business niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-sized marketing segment, which supplies an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing strictly the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace supply one and the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are identical. Very identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP option. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only an average chap who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web site creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web pages. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting alternative you can choose? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 web hosting providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brands in the world will give you the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the present-day web hosting market is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably answered all website hosting industry prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign No.1: A dumb domain folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extremely careful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, 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 server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder structure 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 name)
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 growing puzzled? We clearly are!

Disadvantage Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder structure

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly enhance their belief in God when coping with the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Problem Number Three: A thorough lack of domain administration tools

Do we have to bring up the sheer shortage of a modern domain manipulation platform - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois information, secure the Whois info, change/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" section at all. That's an immense predicament. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...

Downside No.4: Multiple user login places (min two, maximum 3)

What about the need for another login to avail of the invoicing, domain and tech support management system? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web hosting distributor. Occasionally, based on the billing system (principally tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting distributor is availing of, the keen customers can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing/domain management menu; 2: the trouble ticket support system), ending up with a total of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Weak Point Number Five: More than 120 web hosting CP departments to become acquainted with... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them fast... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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