cPanel Hosting Definition

For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offerings on today's website hosting market are supplied by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing segment, which provides a huge quantity of different web hosting brands, yet offering precisely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offers on the whole website hosting marketplace provide the very same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

The web hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just an ordinary guy who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the current website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly met most website hosting business preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign Number One: An idiotic domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra attentive not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the web hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, 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 name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder configuration 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)
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 name)

Are you becoming confused? We certainly are!

Weak Side Number Two: The very same mail folder arrangement

The e-mail folder configuration on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums firmly increase their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to bungle things up too seriously.

Negative Sign No.3: A complete lack of domain manipulation options

Do we have to refer to the entire shortage of a modern domain name management interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois details, secure the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" section at all. That's an immense predicament. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Weak Point Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum two, max 3)

What about the need for an additional login to utilize the billing, domain and technical support management software platform? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting service provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoice transaction platform (principally built for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting vendor is utilizing, the devoted customers can wind up with two extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number Five: 120+ web hosting Control Panel departments to get to know... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them briskly... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting service providers:

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