How does cpanel-based web site hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offers on the current web hosting market are supplied by a quite insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web page hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which furnishes a vast quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing the very same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98% of the web space hosting offers on the whole web page hosting market offer exactly the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web space hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mark that one...

200k "site hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only a regular fellow who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site creation procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and online portals . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 web space hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brand names all over the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel web page hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on today's web space hosting market is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably fulfilled most web hosting industry requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect No.1: A stupid domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra careful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to erase on the web hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite 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 attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you becoming disorientated? We surely are!

Predicament Number Two: The same mail folder setup

The email folder arrangement on the server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin guys strongly enhance their faith in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too seriously.

Predicament Number 3: A complete deficiency of domain name management options

Do we have to point out the total lack of a modern domain management interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois details, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a major downside. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Weak Point No.4: Many login places (minimum two, maximum three)

What about the demand for an additional login to use the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management software solution? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web page hosting distributor. At times, based on the invoice transaction platform (especially invented for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the devoted customers can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management section; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with a total of three login places (including cPanel).

Shortcoming Number 5: More than 120 web space hosting CP menus to get familiar with... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them fast... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting companies:

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