How does cpanel hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the present web space hosting market are supplied by a quite insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a sort of a small business niche, which supplies a vast number of different web hosting brands, yet offering strictly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web page hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace offer the very same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web space hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple math shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based web site hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably fulfilled all site hosting business prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Point No.1: A ludicrous domain folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra 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). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to delete on the server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder arrangement 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 name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you growing perplexed? We positively are!

Weak Side Number Two: The same e-mail folder setup

The mail folder configuration on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly strengthen their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.

Negative Point No.3: An utter shortage of domain management tools

Do we need to mention the entire deficiency of a modern domain name management menu - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois info, shield the Whois information, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an immense downside. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Disadvantage Number 4: Many user login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the need for another login to utilize the billing transaction, domain name and technical support administration menu? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting firm. At times, on the basis of the invoice transaction platform (principally tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting supplier is utilizing, the zealous users can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), ending up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web page hosting Control Panel departments to pick up... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web page hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them swiftly... That's way too insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web page hosting providers:

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