What Does cPanel Web Hosting Denote?

cPanel-based site hosting or... cPanel-based web hosting?!?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web page hosting offerings on the current website hosting market are generated by a quite insubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which provides a huge number of different web hosting brands, yet providing exactly the same thing: mainly cPanel hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the site hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market provide one and the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web space hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Giving those who need a hosting service almost no other web page hosting platform/web site hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "website hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The webspace hosting "variety" and the web site hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web page hosting brand names. Suppose you are just a normal guy who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the site creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and online portals . Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand web site hosting providers 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 give you the very same cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web page hosting LOTTO we are all a piece of

Simple math demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps met most website hosting market demands. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Problem Number 1: An idiotic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra careful not to delete 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to delete on the web server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder setup 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)


Are you getting bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Weakness Number 2: The samemail folder setup

The mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to muck things up too gravely.

Weak Point Number Three: A total deficiency of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we need to cite the sheer deficiency of a modern domain name management platform - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois details, protect the Whois information, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a gigantic drawback. An inexcusable one, we would like to add...

Predicament Number Four: Multiple user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to make use of the billing, domain and technical support management menu? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting provider. Occasionally, depending on the billing transaction platform (especially invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel hosting supplier is making use of, the eager users can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the billing/domain name management system; 2: the ticket support interface), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (counting cPanel).

Weak Point No.5: More than one hundred and twenty webspace hosting Control Panel departments to get familiar with... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to memorize each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them rapidly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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