How does cpanel-based site hosting function?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on today's web page hosting market are provided by a very unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-scale business niche, which provides an enormous quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying strictly the same services: chiefly 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 hosting marketplace furnish exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other site hosting platform/CP choice. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200k "web hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The web space hosting "diversity" and the webspace hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an ordinary bloke who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site development processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and online portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web space hosting option you can pick? Of course there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique web space hosting brand names across the world will offer you literally the same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the contemporary site hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web site hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied all site hosting industry preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect Number 1: A foolish domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra careful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the web server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, 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 erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)
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 bewildered? We unquestionably are!

Negative Point Number 2: The same email folder configuration

The electronic mail folder structure on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin boys firmly enhance their belief in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to mess things up too irreparably.

Downside Number 3: A thorough absence of domain name manipulation options

Do we need to mention the entire lack of a modern domain name management platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" tool at all. That's a major shortcoming. An unforgivable one, we want to add...

Weak Side No.4: Numerous login places (min two, maximum 3)

What about the need for another login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support management GUI? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based web site hosting vendor. Occasionally, on the basis of the billing tool (especially meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is making use of, the earnest users can end up with two additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain management software; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with a total of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Point No.5: More than one hundred and twenty webspace hosting CP menus to become acquainted with... fast

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the hosting CP. It's a great idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up quickly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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