How does cpanel website hosting function?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel website hosting offerings on today's webspace hosting market are supplied by a very insignificant marketing segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing niche, which provides an immense quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing strictly the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the site hosting offers on the whole website hosting market furnish the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web site hosting prices are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different hosting brands in the world will give you exactly the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on today's web site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel-based web page hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly satisfied most site hosting industry requirements. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number 1: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very careful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the web server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain 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 name)

Are you growing baffled? We doubtlessly are!

Weak Point Number Two: The same electronic mail folder system

The mail folder structure on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin blokes firmly strengthen their belief in God when coping with the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to botch things up too badly.

Negative Side Number Three: A complete shortage of domain name administration menus

Do we need to point out the total lack of a contemporary domain name manipulation user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois details, alter/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a colossal disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Weakness No.4: Numerous login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for an extra login to access the billing, domain and tech support administration user interface? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based webspace hosting provider. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing transaction system (principally developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting firm is using, the zealous clients can end up with two extra login locations (1: the billing/domain administration software; 2: the ticket support section), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Point Number Five: More than 120 web site hosting CP departments to become familiar with... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ departments inside the site hosting CP. It's a fine idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up quickly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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