cPanel Website Hosting Clarified

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offers on the current hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-sized business niche, which generates an immense amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying one and the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace supply precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are identical. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

The website hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely an ordinary guy who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and web pages. Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 web hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique hosting brand names in the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel CP and platform, dubbed differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the diversity on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly fulfilled all website hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number One: A ludicrous domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely cautious not to delete completely 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 domain names are very easy to delete on the server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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 name)
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 name)

Are you growing bewildered? We certainly are!

Negative Point Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly fortify their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to muck things up too seriously.

Negative Point Number Three: A complete lack of domain name administration GUIs

Do we have to bring up the absolute shortage of a modern domain management user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois info, secure the Whois info, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" interface at all. That's a mammoth downside. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Negative Sign No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum two, max 3)

How about the necessity for an extra login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management GUI? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting company. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing system (principally meant for cPanel only) the cPanel website hosting firm is utilizing, the zealous customers can end up with two extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain management tool; 2: the ticket support GUI), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Downside Number 5: More than 120 web hosting Control Panel areas to get acquainted with... promptly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better grasp them promptly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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