cPanel Website Hosting Description

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are provided by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small business niche, which furnishes an enormous quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying literally the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the entire web hosting market provide one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/hosting CP choice. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only an ordinary chap who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site making procedures and the hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and web sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200k web hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands in the world will give you the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on today's web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably fulfilled most web hosting market prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number 1: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very attentive not to remove completely 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 domain names are quite easy to remove on the web server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain folder setup is:

public_html (here is located)
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 name)
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)

Are you becoming confused? We categorically are!

Downside No.2: The same email folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly reinforce their belief in God when coping with the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too fatally.

Predicament Number Three: An absolute deficiency of domain management menus

Do we need to mention the utter shortage of a modern domain name manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois information, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a colossal disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we want to add...

Weak Point No.4: Numerous login places (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the need for an additional login to make use of the billing transaction, domain and tech support management system? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web hosting service provider. Sometimes, based on the billing tool (principally developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting supplier is utilizing, the avid customers can end up with two extra login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain administration software solution; 2: the ticket support software platform), winding up with an aggregate of three login locations (including cPanel).

Downside Number 5: 120+ Control Panel departments to pick up... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them promptly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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