What Does cPanel Website Hosting Signify?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel hosting offers on the present web hosting marketplace are generated by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to annual money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which furnishes a big quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet providing the very same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole website hosting market provide precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/hosting CP choice. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mark that one...

200,000 "hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The hosting "variety" and the hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply an ordinary guy who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any website hosting alternative you can settle on? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200k hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brands in the world will give you the same cPanel CP and platform, named in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the diversity on today's web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably answered all web hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming Number One: A foolish domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be very cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to delete on the server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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 name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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 growing confused? We doubtlessly are!

Negative Aspect No.2: The very same electronic mail folder structure

The email folder arrangement on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly reinforce their faith in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to bungle things up too irretrievably.

Drawback Number 3: An absolute deficiency of domain name manipulation menus

Do we need to cite the total lack of a contemporary domain administration menu - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois details, shield the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a major weakness. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Predicament No.4: Numerous user login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an extra login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain and technical support management system? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting distributor. Occasionally, based on the billing transaction system (principally developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting distributor is making use of, the devoted customers can wind up with two extra logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP areas to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them rapidly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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