cPanel Hosting Description

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel hosting offerings on the current website hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small marketing segment, which supplies a vast number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing one and the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace supply literally the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are simply a normal chap who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the site development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any website hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200,000 web hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web hosting brand names worldwide will give you the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps covered most website hosting business demands. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number One: An idiotic domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domains, however, be ultra attentive not to delete entirely 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to remove on the web hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 disorientated? We absolutely are!

Negative Side No.2: The very same mail folder setup

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly reinforce their faith in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too severely.

Drawback Number 3: A sheer shortage of domain name administration options

Do we need to point out the thorough deficiency of a modern domain name management interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" menu at all. That's a major weakness. An unforgivable one, we wish to add...

Disadvantage Number 4: Many login places (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the necessity for another login to access the billing transaction, domain and tech support management software platform? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting company. At times, depending on the billing transaction system (principally tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel hosting service provider is availing of, the devoted customers can end up with two extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support system), ending up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Disadvantage No.5: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel menus to pick up... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to become familiar with each one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them quickly... That's extremely impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting corporations:

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