What Does cPanel Website Hosting Signify?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel website hosting offerings on the present website hosting market are furnished by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing segment, which furnishes a big number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing precisely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace supply literally the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The website hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are merely an ordinary fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting option you can choose? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 web hosting providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands all over the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on today's web hosting market is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably met most web hosting business preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside No.1: A stupid domain folder system

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extremely attentive not to remove 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). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to remove on the web hosting server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder system 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 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 baffled? We clearly are!

Problem No.2: The very same mail folder structure

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly enhance their belief in God when tackling the mail folders on the mail server, praying not to botch things up too fatally.

Weak Side Number Three: A total lack of domain management sections

Do we have to cite the entire lack of a contemporary domain management user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois details, shield the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a mammoth shortcoming. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Problem Number 4: Multiple login locations (min 2, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to avail of the billing transaction, domain name and tech support management system? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting supplier. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing transaction system (especially made for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel website hosting corporation is using, the eager clients can wind up with two additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain administration software platform; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Negative Point Number Five: 120+ website hosting CP sections to pick up... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them rapidly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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