What is cPanel Web Hosting?

cPanel website hosting or... cPanel-based web hosting?!?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel webspace hosting offerings on the contemporary webspace hosting marketplace are provided by a very insubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small business niche, which furnishes a vast quantity of different hosting brand names, yet providing absolutely the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the entire site hosting market furnish absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Leaving for those who require a web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web site hosting CP alternative. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200k hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2%, note that one...

200,000 "web space hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The site hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply a normal guy who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web site making procedures and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and websites . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any webspace hosting alternative you can pick? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web site hosting firms out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web space hosting brands worldwide will offer you exactly the same cPanel web page hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on the current web site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all a piece of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a big stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps answered all web space hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number 1: A dumb domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domains, however, be very cautious not to remove entirely 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, 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 remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)

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)

public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)

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 flummoxed? We surely are!

Negative Side Number 2: The very samemail folder arrangement

The email folder structure on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly fortify their faith in God when managing the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too irretrievably.

Downside No.3: A sheer lack of domain management interfaces

Do we have to mention the total absence of a contemporary domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois information, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" menu at all. That's an immense disadvantage. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

Negative Sign No.4: Multiple user login places (min 2, max 3)

How about the necessity for another login to use the billing, domain and tech support management software solution? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel web hosting corporation. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (especially designed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel hosting provider is availing of, the keen clients can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain management interface; 2: the ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (including cPanel).

Shortcoming No.5: 120+ hosting Control Panel departments to become familiar with... promptly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 departments inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better memorize them rapidly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting service providers:

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