Description of cPanel Hosting

For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel hosting offers on the contemporary hosting market are furnished by a quite insignificant business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-scale business niche, which furnishes a great amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering exactly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting market provide strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP option. So, there is only one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The hosting "variety" and the hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are only an ordinary bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web page making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and web portals. Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 web hosting firms in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brands all over the world will give you strictly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably met most web hosting industry demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Problem No.1: An imbecilic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domains, though, be very watchful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the web server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular 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 erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how fantastic 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)
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 name)
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 confused? We clearly are!

Predicament Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder system

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly increase their belief in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to muck things up too badly.

Downside No.3: A complete lack of domain name manipulation options

Do we have to cite the utter lack of a modern domain manipulation GUI - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois details, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" interface at all. That's a colossal problem. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Weak Point Number Four: Multiple user login locations (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for an extra login to use the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support administration software? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel hosting firm. Occasionally, based on the billing platform (especially intended for cPanel only) the cPanel hosting supplier is utilizing, the devoted users can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Point No.5: More than 120 hosting Control Panel sections to pick up... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ menus inside the hosting CP. It's a fine idea to grasp each of them. And you'd better grasp them swiftly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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