Description of cPanel Website Hosting

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on today's web hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized business niche, which furnishes a huge quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing exactly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting market offer literally the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP option. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

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

The website hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely a normal bloke who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web page making procedures and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and online portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting option you can choose? Of course there is, today there are more than 200,000 web hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brands around the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the current website hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a big strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably covered all hosting industry preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Predicament Number One: An idiotic domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to delete on the hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder system 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 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!

Shortcoming Number Two: The same email folder setup

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly strengthen their faith in God when coping with the email folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too badly.

Predicament No.3: An entire deficiency of domain administration options

Do we need to cite the absolute absence of a contemporary domain manipulation tool - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, alter domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois information, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a considerable downside. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

Predicament No.4: Many user login locations (min two, max three)

How about the necessity for another login to utilize the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support administration software platform? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based website hosting provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing tool (particularly devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel website hosting corporation is making use of, the zealous customers can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing transaction/domain management user interface; 2: the ticket support GUI), winding up with an aggregate of three user login places (including cPanel).

Problem Number 5: 120+ web hosting CP sections to get acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 departments inside the web hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better grasp them swiftly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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