How cPanel Hosting Functions

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on today's web hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-sized business niche, which generates a big number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing literally the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market provide exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200,000 "web hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet diversely branded

The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting brand names. Assume you are just a regular bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and web portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any hosting alternative you can choose? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 website hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands around the world will give you the very same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly met most website hosting market prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Predicament Number 1: A laughable domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, though, be very cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to 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 easy to remove on the web hosting server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)

Are you becoming puzzled? We certainly are!

Problem Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder setup

The email folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly fortify their faith in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to screw things up too irretrievably.

Disadvantage No.3: A total deficiency of domain administration user interfaces

Do we have to cite the sheer deficiency of a modern domain name management user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, change domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois details, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a huge inconvenience. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Problem Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum two, max three)

How about the demand for another login to use the invoicing, domain and tech support administration GUI? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting firm. Now and then, on the basis of the invoice transaction platform (particularly invented for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting supplier is making use of, the earnest clients can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing/domain name administration interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Disadvantage Number Five: More than 120 Control Panel menus to become acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to pick up each one of them. And you'd better learn them rapidly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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