What In Fact is cPanel Web Hosting?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting market are generated by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing segment, which provides a vast amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying the very same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market provide literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 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 hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely a normal guy who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the website making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and websites. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting alternative you can choose? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200,000 website 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 brand names across the world will give you precisely the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly fulfilled all web hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament Number One: A laughable domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra attentive not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is situated)
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)
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 becoming baffled? We categorically are!

Weak Point No.2: The very same e-mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chaps strongly fortify their belief in God when dealing with the email folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too severely.

Disadvantage No.3: An utter deficiency of domain administration tools

Do we need to point out the total shortage of a modern domain name administration tool - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois details, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" GUI at all. That's an enormous drawback. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Downside No.4: Many login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the necessity for an extra login to use the invoicing, domain and technical support management tool? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based hosting vendor. Occasionally, depending on the invoice transaction tool (especially made for cPanel only) the cPanel hosting provider is utilizing, the eager users can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management software; 2: the ticket support user interface), winding up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number Five: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel menus to get familiar with... swiftly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ sections inside the website hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them rapidly... That's very impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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