How cPanel Web Hosting Functions

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on today's web hosting market are generated by a quite inconsiderable business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-sized business segment, which furnishes a vast number of different web hosting brands, yet providing absolutely the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire hosting market offer the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP option. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "web hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only a normal bloke who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the site creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any website hosting variant you can settle on? Of course there is, today there are more than 200k web hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different website hosting brands worldwide will offer you precisely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on today's web hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a huge stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps fulfilled all hosting market preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number One: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have two or more domains, however, be very watchful not to remove 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 web hosting server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed 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. Verify for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder setup is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you growing nonplussed? We categorically are!

Weak Side No.2: The very same e-mail folder structure

The e-mail folder structure on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly fortify their belief in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Weakness No.3: A sheer absence of domain administration options

Do we have to bring up the entire shortage of a contemporary domain name administration tool - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois info, secure the Whois information, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an immense disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Negative Sign Number Four: Many login places (min two, maximum three)

How about the need for an extra login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support management GUI? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web hosting company. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (principally meant for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting distributor is utilizing, the ardent users can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Weak Side Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel departments to memorize... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them promptly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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