For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Website Hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are generated by a very insubstantial business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small marketing niche, which supplies an immense quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying one and the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace provide one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting prices are alike. Very much alike. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...
The Website Hosting "variety" and the hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply a normal chap who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting alternative you can decide upon? Sure there is, at present there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names worldwide will give you precisely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the present web hosting market is... Full stop.
Simple mathematics demonstrates that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...
Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly covered most website hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...
If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extra cautious not to erase 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 domain names are very easy to remove on the server, because 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 situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder structure is:public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
Are you becoming confused? We doubtlessly are!
The e-mail folder configuration on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly increase their faith in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the email server, praying not to botch things up too irretrievably.
Do we need to refer to the entire lack of a contemporary domain name administration menu - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a colossal problem. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...
What about the demand for an extra login to access the billing transaction, domain and tech support administration user interface? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Website Hosting service provider. At times, depending on the invoicing tool (especially made for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting firm is using, the avid customers can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain management platform; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).
cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the CP. It's a terrific idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them quickly... That's inordinately impudent 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? Remark that one too...
