What Does cPanel Web Hosting Signify?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel website hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are provided by a quite inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-scale business niche, which furnishes a great quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering exactly the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace supply one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "website hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The website hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just an average person who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web site making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and web portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, these days there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different web hosting brands worldwide will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps met most web hosting industry prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Problem Number One: A dumb domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extra careful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, 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, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very 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 erase the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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)
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 perplexed? We certainly are!

Drawback Number 2: The same e-mail folder system

The email folder structure on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly enhance their faith in God when handling the email folders on the email server, hoping not to bungle things up too gravely.

Negative Sign Number Three: A thorough absence of domain name manipulation menus

Do we have to point out the thorough deficiency of a contemporary domain name management GUI - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois info, shield the Whois details, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" user interface at all. That's an enormous inconvenience. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Weak Point Number 4: Numerous user login places (minimum 2, max 3)

How about the demand for another login to access the billing, domain name and tech support administration user interface? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting firm. Now and then, on the basis of the invoice transaction system (especially created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel website hosting supplier is making use of, the avid clients can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain name management software; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with a total of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number Five: More than 120 CP menus to grasp... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting suppliers:

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