cPanel Hosting Unmasked

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the current web hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite inconsiderable business niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small business niche, which provides a great number of different web hosting brands, yet providing exactly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole hosting market offer the very same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply an ordinary chap who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any website hosting alternative you can choose? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting vendors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands all over the world will offer you the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on today's hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a great strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

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

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly covered most website hosting business demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign Number 1: A laughable domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra careful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to remove on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous 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. Examine for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder setup 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 name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you getting confused? We undoubtedly are!

Negative Aspect No.2: The same e-mail folder arrangement

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums strongly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too badly.

Weak Point Number 3: An entire shortage of domain name management sections

Do we need to mention the entire lack of a modern domain name management platform - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois details, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a mammoth weakness. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Weak Side Number 4: Many login places (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the need for another login to make use of the billing transaction, domain name and tech support management section? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web hosting company. Now and then, depending on the billing transaction tool (especially designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting supplier is making use of, the avid customers can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the billing/domain name management software solution; 2: the ticket support platform), winding up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Downside Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel areas to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better learn them fast... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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