How does cpanel-based web site hosting operate?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel site hosting offers on the current web page hosting marketplace are generated by a very inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-size business segment, which generates an enormous number of different web hosting brand names, yet providing one and the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the hosting offers on the entire webspace hosting marketplace supply the very same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/webspace hosting CP alternative. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "site hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The hosting "variety" and the site hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different site hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only an ordinary fellow who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web page development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web space hosting option you can settle on? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200k site hosting companies in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names in the world will offer you the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the contemporary web space hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably covered all website hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Side No.1: A foolish domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very watchful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to 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 delete on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here is located)
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)
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 name)

Are you growing confused? We clearly are!

Negative Sign No.2: The same electronic mail folder arrangement

The email folder arrangement on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly reinforce their faith in God when handling the email folders on the mail server, praying not to mess things up too irreparably.

Inconvenience No.3: A sheer lack of domain name management options

Do we have to bring up the sheer shortage of a modern domain manipulation menu - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois info, secure the Whois details, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an enormous weakness. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Shortcoming No.4: Many user login places (min two, max three)

How about the need for another login to avail of the billing, domain name and technical support management section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web space hosting firm. Occasionally, based on the invoicing system (particularly created for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting company is availing of, the keen customers can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management menu; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Shortcoming Number 5: 120+ hosting CP areas to become acquainted with... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the webspace hosting Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better learn them briskly... That's way too insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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