What Does cPanel Website Hosting Signify?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the present website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very inconsiderable business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing segment, which provides an enormous quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing exactly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the entire website hosting market furnish one and the very same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200k "web hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are just an average person who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, right now there are more than 200k hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names in the world will offer you the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based web hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably answered most web hosting market demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Problem No.1: A stupid domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to erase on the web server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 clearly are!

Negative Aspect Number 2: The same electronic mail folder structure

The email folder configuration on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly fortify their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to botch things up too harshly.

Drawback No.3: A sheer shortage of domain name administration menus

Do we need to refer to the absolute shortage of a modern domain name administration GUI - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois details, shield the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a big inconvenience. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Drawback No.4: Many user login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

How about the need for another login to use the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting provider. Occasionally, based on the invoice transaction system (particularly designed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting supplier is utilizing, the zealous users can wind up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management software platform; 2: the trouble ticket support section), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

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

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them rapidly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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