What is cPanel Website Hosting?

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel hosting offers on the current hosting market are supplied by a very inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale business niche, which generates a great amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing absolutely the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting market supply the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

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

The hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply an average person who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting option you can choose? Sure there is, these days there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique hosting brands around the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the current website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably satisfied all hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Problem No.1: A dumb domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra careful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the web server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located 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. Discover for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder configuration 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 name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you becoming perplexed? We absolutely are!

Weak Side Number Two: The same electronic mail folder setup

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums firmly increase their faith in God when dealing with the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too harshly.

Predicament No.3: A complete shortage of domain manipulation GUIs

Do we need to refer to the absolute shortage of a contemporary domain name administration interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois details, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a considerable drawback. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Many user login locations (min two, maximum 3)

What about the necessity for another login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support administration GUI? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based hosting service provider. Occasionally, on the basis of the billing transaction tool (particularly devised for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel hosting company is availing of, the zealous customers can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management platform; 2: the trouble ticket support software), winding up with a total of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel menus to become acquainted with... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a great idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one too...
