Definition of cPanel Web Hosting

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel web hosting offerings on the current website hosting marketplace are generated by a quite insubstantial marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized business niche, which generates an immense quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering absolutely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace offer one and the very same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200,000 "web hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Assume you are only an average fellow who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and online portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 web hosting providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brand names worldwide will give you exactly the same cPanel hosting CP and platform, named differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the present website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly met most web hosting business prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side Number One: A stupid domain folder structure

If you have two or more domains, however, be extremely careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to remove on the server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder system 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 growing baffled? We unquestionably are!

Weak Side No.2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder configuration on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly reinforce their faith in God when tackling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too fatally.

Weak Point No.3: An entire shortage of domain manipulation options

Do we need to mention the total deficiency of a contemporary domain name manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, alter domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a considerable drawback. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Negative Side Number Four: Many user login locations (min 2, max three)

How about the need for an extra login to make use of the billing, domain name and tech support management menu? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting supplier. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing platform (especially made for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is using, the enthusiastic clients can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain management GUI; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Inconvenience Number Five: 120+ website hosting CP sections to learn... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to learn each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them promptly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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