Description of cPanel Website Hosting

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting market are generated by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-sized marketing niche, which supplies a great number of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying literally the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market furnish absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mind that one...

The web hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just a normal chap who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website making processes and the hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web hosting variant you can settle on? Of course there is, at present there are more than 200k web hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique hosting brands across the world will offer you the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the present-day web hosting market is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably covered all hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number One: A moronic domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 confused? We undeniably are!

Negative Side No.2: The very same email folder setup

The mail folder configuration on the server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly fortify their faith in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to botch things up too irreparably.

Negative Aspect No.3: An utter absence of domain name management user interfaces

Do we have to bring up the thorough deficiency of a modern domain manipulation interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois information, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" interface at all. That's an immense weakness. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Drawback Number 4: Multiple user login locations (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for another login to utilize the billing, domain name and tech support administration platform? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web hosting distributor. At times, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (principally made for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting service provider is availing of, the earnest clients can wind up with two additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management software; 2: the ticket support section), winding up with a total of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number 5: More than 120 web hosting CP departments to get to know... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a superb idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them quickly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting suppliers:

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