How cPanel Web Hosting Functions

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are provided by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing the very same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace furnish literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are alike. Quite identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "website hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The website hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely an ordinary person who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any hosting option you can pick? Of course there is, at present there are more than 200k web hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different web hosting brand names in the world will offer you the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the present web hosting market is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably covered most web hosting business requirements. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Predicament Number 1: An idiotic domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extremely careful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to delete on the web server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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. Decide for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder system 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)
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)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
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 getting puzzled? We doubtlessly are!

Disadvantage Number 2: The same e-mail folder structure

The email folder configuration on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly enhance their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too harshly.

Disadvantage No.3: A thorough deficiency of domain administration menus

Do we need to cite the thorough absence of a modern domain administration tool - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois info, secure the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an immense problem. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Multiple login places (min two, max 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to avail of the billing transaction, domain and technical support management interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based website hosting company. Sometimes, depending on the billing platform (particularly designed for cPanel only) the cPanel website hosting corporation is using, the avid customers can end up with two extra logins (1: the billing/domain administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), winding up with a total of three login places (including cPanel).

Predicament No.5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel sections to get familiar with... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them fast... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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