cPanel Web Hosting Description

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web hosting offerings on the contemporary hosting market are supplied by a very unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-sized business segment, which supplies a big quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying literally the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace offer the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The web hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are just an ordinary guy who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and online portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any hosting variant you can opt for? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brands around the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the contemporary website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps covered all website hosting market prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage Number 1: A moronic domain name folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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 domain names, please. Examine for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain 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)
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 getting nonplussed? We certainly are!

Downside No.2: The very same e-mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder structure on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chums strongly enhance their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to botch things up too irreparably.

Disadvantage No.3: A thorough absence of domain name manipulation menus

Do we have to mention the complete deficiency of a contemporary domain management platform - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois information, secure the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a vast inconvenience. An unjustifiable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Sign Number Four: Numerous login places (min 2, max three)

What about the necessity for another login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support administration tool? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting firm. At times, depending on the invoicing transaction system (particularly conceived for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is utilizing, the earnest customers can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain name management user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with a total of three login places (including cPanel).

Problem Number 5: 120+ web hosting CP areas to get to know... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them quickly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting vendors:

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