cPanel Website Hosting Unveiled

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on today's website hosting market are provided by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized business segment, which supplies a vast quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying literally the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace furnish precisely the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200,000 "website hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The website hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an average bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web page development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and websites. Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can settle on? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k web hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different web hosting brands around the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the contemporary hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a mammoth stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps met all website hosting business demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: A moronic domain folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra attentive not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder configuration 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 name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you becoming bewildered? We definitely are!

Weak Side Number 2: The very same email folder system

The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin blokes strongly fortify their faith in God when handling the email folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too severely.

Drawback Number Three: A total shortage of domain name administration user interfaces

Do we have to bring up the total shortage of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a huge problem. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Predicament Number 4: Numerous login places (min 2, maximum 3)

What about the necessity for an extra login to make use of the billing, domain name and technical support administration system? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based website hosting firm. Occasionally, based on the invoicing transaction system (principally meant for cPanel only) the cPanel website hosting company is availing of, the keen users can end up with two additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support software), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: More than 120 website hosting CP areas to get familiar with... fast

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the CP. It's an excellent idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them promptly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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