How does cpanel-based web hosting function?

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel site hosting offers on the present webspace hosting market are generated by a very insignificant marketing niche (when it comes to annual money flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a type of a small business segment, which generates a great quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web site hosting offers on the whole site hosting market furnish literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/hosting CP choice. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "web site hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The web site hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different site hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply a normal guy who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website making processes and the site hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and websites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 website hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names across the world will offer you the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably covered most web space hosting industry preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament Number 1: A ludicrous domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be very cautious not to delete entirely 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 name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to remove on the server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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. Observe for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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 name)
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 growing bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Negative Sign No.2: The very same e-mail folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly increase their faith in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.

Inconvenience Number Three: An utter deficiency of domain administration sections

Do we have to refer to the total deficiency of a contemporary domain name management interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois information, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a gigantic downside. An unpardonable one, we want to add...

Problem Number 4: Multiple user login locations (min 2, max three)

How about the necessity for another login to access the billing, domain name and technical support management platform? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web space hosting corporation. Sometimes, based on the billing platform (particularly developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting distributor is using, the devoted clients can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain management GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Weak Point No.5: More than 120 CP sections to pick up... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the web hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel site hosting firms:

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