What is cPanel Website Hosting?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel hosting offers on today's hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale business segment, which generates a great amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering absolutely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting market provide the very same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200k "hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just a regular fellow who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and sites. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting variant you can decide upon? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brands across the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on the contemporary web hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a mammoth stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably satisfied most website hosting market requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number One: A moronic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very watchful not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, 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 server, since 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 name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder setup 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 name)

Are you becoming baffled? We undeniably are!

Predicament Number Two: The very same mail folder system

The electronic mail folder configuration on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin guys strongly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too seriously.

Negative Sign Number Three: A thorough absence of domain name management menus

Do we have to bring up the complete lack of a modern domain administration tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois details, shield the Whois information, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" tool at all. That's an immense drawback. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

Negative Side No.4: Numerous login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the necessity for an extra login to access the billing, domain and technical support management platform? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel hosting corporation. At times, on the basis of the invoice transaction platform (particularly conceived for cPanel only) the cPanel hosting vendor is utilizing, the avid clients can end up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain administration software; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Shortcoming No.5: More than one hundred and twenty hosting CP departments to become acquainted with... swiftly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them briskly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting vendors:

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