How Does cPanel Hosting Work?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel hosting offerings on the present web hosting market are generated by a very insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to annual money flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small marketing segment, which generates a huge quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing strictly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market furnish precisely the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are only an average bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web site making procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites. Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any website hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brands across the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on today's website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably satisfied most web hosting business preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback No.1: An idiotic domain folder system

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder system 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)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 puzzled? We unquestionably are!

Negative Aspect Number 2: The same e-mail folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly reinforce their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to bungle things up too irreparably.

Weak Side Number Three: A complete absence of domain management menus

Do we have to refer to the sheer absence of a contemporary domain management interface - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois information, shield the Whois details, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a huge disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...

Weak Side Number 4: Many user login places (min two, max three)

What about the demand for an additional login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support management GUI? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel hosting provider. Sometimes, based on the invoice transaction system (principally tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel hosting firm is using, the ardent customers can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support system), winding up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty Control Panel sections to memorize... promptly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them quickly... That's way too arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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