cPanel Website Hosting Defined
For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on the present web hosting market are generated by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing niche, which furnishes a great quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet providing strictly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting market provide literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...
200,000 "web hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded
The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are only a regular person who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web site making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web hosting alternative you can pick? Sure there is, today there are more than 200k web hosting providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names in the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the contemporary website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.
The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in
Simple mathematics reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...
The positive and negative sides of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly answered most website hosting business demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...
Problem Number 1: A moronic domain name folder system
If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be very attentive not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the web server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated 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. Decide for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
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 name)
Are you becoming perplexed? We positively are!
Negative Side Number 2: The same electronic mail folder system
The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly fortify their belief in God when managing the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too irreparably.
Negative Aspect No.3: An utter shortage of domain management options
Do we need to point out the utter shortage of a contemporary domain administration GUI - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, change/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" tool at all. That's a great problem. An unjustifiable one, we would like to add...
Predicament Number 4: Many user login places (min 2, maximum three)
How about the need for an extra login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support management menu? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web hosting distributor. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing tool (particularly made for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the eager clients can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing transaction/domain management software; 2: the ticket support software solution), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).
Weakness Number Five: More than 120 web hosting CP menus to get familiar with... swiftly
cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 departments inside the web hosting CP. It's a fine idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them rapidly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.
With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting service providers:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one as well...
