How Does cPanel Website Hosting Function?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel website hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are generated by a very insignificant business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small business segment, which furnishes a huge quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering exactly the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the whole website hosting market supply strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/CP choice. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

The website hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are only a regular guy who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web page development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting variant you can pick? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 web hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brand names around the world will give you exactly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the present website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative sides 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 presumably satisfied most hosting industry requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament No.1: An imbecilic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub 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 quite easy to erase on the server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known 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 remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder arrangement 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)
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)
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 disorientated? We undoubtedly are!

Inconvenience No.2: The very same mail folder setup

The email folder arrangement on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin boys strongly fortify their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too irreparably.

Negative Point No.3: A total shortage of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we need to mention the sheer shortage of a contemporary domain name management interface - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domains' Whois information, secure the Whois details, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a huge disadvantage. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Disadvantage Number 4: Numerous login locations (min 2, max 3)

What about the need for an extra login to access the invoicing, domain name and tech support management platform? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based website hosting firm. Sometimes, on the basis of the billing system (principally intended for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel website hosting vendor is making use of, the keen clients can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration GUI; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Weak Side No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP sections to memorize... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them fast... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting corporations:

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