How does cpanel-based site hosting operate?

For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based web space hosting offerings on the contemporary web site hosting marketplace are provided by a quite unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-sized business niche, which generates a huge quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing absolutely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offers on the entire web page hosting marketplace furnish exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web site hosting price tags are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web space hosting platform/CP choice. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200,000 site hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200k "web site hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The web site hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only a regular fellow who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page creation processes and the site hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and websites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than 200k web space hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique web space hosting brand names all over the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a big strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably met most web page hosting market prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Shortcoming Number One: A ludicrous domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domains, however, be very careful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, 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 web server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known 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 try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how amazing 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)
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 getting baffled? We definitely are!

Problem Number Two: The same e-mail folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The admin boys strongly reinforce their faith in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to mess things up too irreparably.

Predicament No.3: A sheer lack of domain name management GUIs

Do we need to cite the complete deficiency of a modern domain name management platform - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois details, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a great disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we wish to add...

Drawback Number Four: Multiple user login places (minimum two, max 3)

How about the need for another login to use the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management user interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel site hosting company. At times, on the basis of the invoice transaction platform (particularly devised for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting distributor is making use of, the devoted clients can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the billing/domain administration software; 2: the ticket support section), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP areas to get acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ areas inside the web site hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up promptly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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