What Does cPanel Website Hosting Denote?

What Does cPanel Website Hosting Denote?

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on today's web hosting marketplace are provided by a quite unsubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing niche, which provides an enormous quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing absolutely the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace offer the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

The website hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are just an ordinary fellow who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and websites. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any website hosting option you can select? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200k website hosting companies out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brands in the world will give you precisely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the current website hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably fulfilled most web hosting business requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness Number One: An imbecilic domain name folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular 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 remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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)
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)

Are you becoming confused? We surely are!

Predicament No.2: The same email folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly increase their faith in God when tackling the email folders on the e-mail server, praying not to botch things up too fatally.

Weak Side Number 3: A total shortage of domain management options

Do we need to point out the thorough lack of a contemporary domain name management GUI - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois details, protect the Whois info, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a great shortcoming. An inexcusable one, we would like to add...

Problem No.4: Multiple login locations (min 2, max 3)

How about the need for an additional login to use the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support management platform? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based website hosting service provider. At times, based on the billing transaction tool (principally devised for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel website hosting service provider is availing of, the ardent users can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain management system; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Weak Side Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel sections to get acquainted with... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them swiftly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting service providers:

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