How does cpanel site hosting function?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web site hosting offers on the present web page hosting market are provided by a very insubstantial marketing niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing niche, which supplies a huge amount of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying absolutely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web site hosting offers on the entire hosting market supply exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web site hosting platform/CP choice. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web site hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "web hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The website hosting "variety" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are just an average fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and web portals . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any site hosting alternative you can pick? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web page hosting brand names worldwide will offer you literally the same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The webspace hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps answered most web site hosting business prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Point No.1: An imbecilic domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extra watchful not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new 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 server, since they all are located 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 name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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 name)

Are you getting perplexed? We certainly are!

Weakness Number Two: The same mail folder setup

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

Problem No.3: A sheer deficiency of domain name manipulation options

Do we need to refer to the sheer shortage of a contemporary domain name management user interface - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois information, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a gigantic disadvantage. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Drawback No.4: Numerous login places (min two, max three)

How about the demand for an additional login to make use of the invoicing, domain and tech support management user interface? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel site hosting vendor. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing platform (principally designed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting vendor is utilizing, the ardent clients can wind up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain management system; 2: the ticket support platform), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience Number 5: More than 120 site hosting CP menus to get to know... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better get to know them fast... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web page hosting vendors:

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