Definition of cPanel Web Hosting

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel website hosting offers on the present-day hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite inconsiderable business niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which generates a great amount of different web hosting brands, yet providing one and the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market supply exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP option. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200,000 "website hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The website hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply a normal fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web site creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and online portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any hosting variant you can opt for? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200k hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brand names in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the present web hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a big stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly satisfied all hosting market requirements. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect No.1: An idiotic domain folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub 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 easy to remove on the web server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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 domain names, please. Discover for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder arrangement 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)
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)
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 name)

Are you getting confused? We undeniably are!

Shortcoming No.2: The very same electronic mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder structure on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The admin boys strongly enhance their belief in God when handling the mail folders on the email server, praying not to bungle things up too gravely.

Shortcoming No.3: A total deficiency of domain name management user interfaces

Do we need to bring up the entire shortage of a modern domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois information, secure the Whois information, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" menu at all. That's a huge problem. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Disadvantage No.4: Multiple user login locations (min two, max 3)

What about the demand for another login to access the billing transaction, domain name and technical support administration interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based website hosting company. At times, on the basis of the billing platform (principally made for cPanel solely) the cPanel website hosting supplier is availing of, the earnest customers can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration software; 2: the ticket support section), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Predicament No.5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel menus to become acquainted with... fast

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better grasp them rapidly... That's very impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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