What Indeed is cPanel Web Hosting?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on the current web hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-size business segment, which supplies an enormous amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing precisely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace supply the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

WOW! That's how vast the assortment on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a big stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly met all website hosting market requirements. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness Number One: A moronic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely cautious not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the web server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite 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 delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder setup 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)
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 becoming perplexed? We doubtlessly are!

Disadvantage Number Two: The same electronic mail folder system

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin guys strongly reinforce their belief in God when coping with the email folders on the mail server, praying not to screw things up too fatally.

Negative Side No.3: A total shortage of domain manipulation options

Do we have to bring up the thorough absence of a contemporary domain name management GUI - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois information, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a vast predicament. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Sign Number 4: Numerous user login places (min two, maximum 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to access the billing, domain and technical support administration software platform? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web hosting vendor. Now and then, on the basis of the billing transaction platform (especially conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting supplier is using, the devoted clients can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain administration software; 2: the ticket support interface), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect No.5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting CP sections to get familiar with... promptly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the CP. It's a fabulous idea to learn each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them briskly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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