cPanel Web Hosting Description

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the current hosting market are provided by a very inconsiderable business segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which provides an enormous quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet offering the very same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace provide literally the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are identical. Very identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. Thus, 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 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200,000 "hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an ordinary chap who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting option you can select? Of course there is, today there are more than 200k website hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different web hosting brand names across the world will offer you the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the present web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly met all web hosting business preconditions. 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...

Disadvantage Number One: A stupid domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extremely cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to delete on the web server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located 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. Discover for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder structure 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)
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 nonplussed? We definitely are!

Negative Side Number Two: The very same email folder configuration

The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly strengthen their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to screw things up too seriously.

Negative Point No.3: An utter shortage of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we have to refer to the utter absence of a modern domain name administration user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, change domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's an immense disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we wish to add...

Predicament Number 4: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the necessity for an additional login to avail of the invoicing, domain and technical support management software solution? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel hosting distributor. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction tool (especially meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel hosting supplier is using, the avid customers can wind up with two extra logins (1: the billing/domain name administration user interface; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP sections to grasp... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them promptly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting companies:

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