What Does cPanel Website Hosting Signify?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offerings on the present website hosting marketplace are generated by a very inconsiderable business niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-scale business niche, which generates a huge quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering one and the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace offer one and the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only a normal chap who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site creation procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any website hosting alternative you can pick? Sure there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different web hosting brand names all over the world will offer you literally the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the current website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps met all web hosting industry requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign No.1: A ludicrous domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely careful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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)
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 nonplussed? We undeniably are!

Weak Point Number Two: The very same mail folder structure

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin boys firmly strengthen their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Weak Side Number 3: A complete deficiency of domain administration user interfaces

Do we have to point out the complete shortage of a contemporary domain name manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domains' Whois details, secure the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" section at all. That's a vast inconvenience. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Downside Number 4: Many user login locations (min two, max three)

What about the demand for an extra login to use the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support administration tool? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting distributor. Sometimes, depending on the billing system (especially designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is availing of, the earnest customers can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration section; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel sections to get acquainted with... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting CP. It's a great idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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