What Does cPanel Website Hosting Stand for?

For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel hosting offers on the present website hosting marketplace are generated by a very inconsiderable business segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing niche, which generates a great number of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing absolutely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting market furnish exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

The hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different hosting brand names. Assume you are just an ordinary bloke who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the site creation procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and web pages. Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web hosting alternative you can settle on? Sure there is, these days there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting companies in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands around the world will offer you the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the current web hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps met all website hosting market requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage Number One: A dumb domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra attentive not to remove entirely 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 simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed 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. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder system 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 name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 getting puzzled? We surely are!

Negative Point Number Two: The same email folder structure

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly strengthen their belief in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to screw things up too irreparably.

Negative Side No.3: A sheer absence of domain name administration tools

Do we have to bring up the utter lack of a modern domain manipulation GUI - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domains' Whois information, shield the Whois information, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a great inconvenience. An unforgivable one, we want to point out...

Drawback No.4: Numerous user login places (minimum 2, max three)

What about the demand for another login to utilize the billing, domain and tech support administration software solution? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting firm. At times, on the basis of the invoicing system (especially made for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting firm is using, the avid clients can end up with two extra login places (1: the billing/domain management software platform; 2: the ticket support user interface), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number Five: 120+ web hosting CP departments to pick up... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to memorize each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them swiftly... That's inordinately impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based hosting distributors:

As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one as well...
