How does cpanel site hosting function?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel web space hosting offerings on the current web hosting market are generated by a very inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web site hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing niche, which generates an enormous quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing strictly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole webspace hosting marketplace offer precisely the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other webspace hosting platform/web page hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand site hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

200,000 "website hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The website hosting "diversity" and the site hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different site hosting brand names. Imagine you are only an ordinary guy who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and web sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can decide upon? Sure there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand web space hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brand names worldwide will give you the very same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's web hosting market is... Period.

The web page hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly covered most web site hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number One: A stupid domain name folder system

If you have two or more domain names, however, be ultra attentive not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, 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 web server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located 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 marvelous cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)
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 growing confused? We definitely are!

Disadvantage No.2: The very same electronic mail folder arrangement

The email folder arrangement on the hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly increase their belief in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the email server, hoping not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Problem Number 3: An absolute shortage of domain manipulation interfaces

Do we need to mention the entire deficiency of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois information, secure the Whois information, change/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" interface at all. That's a considerable drawback. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Aspect Number 4: Multiple login places (min 2, maximum 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to access the billing, domain name and tech support administration user interface? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel site hosting vendor. Sometimes, based on the billing system (especially conceived for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting supplier is availing of, the earnest users can wind up with two additional login places (1: the billing/domain name management menu; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Weakness No.5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel departments to grasp... rapidly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web space hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better get to know them rapidly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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