How does cpanel-based website hosting operate?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based webspace hosting offerings on the contemporary web site hosting market are generated by a very insubstantial business segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-sized business segment, which supplies a vast amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering strictly the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the entire web space hosting market supply literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel webspace hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web site hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200k web space hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200,000 "hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The web page hosting "diversity" and the web page hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just a normal bloke who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web site making processes and the web page hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and web sites . Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any web space hosting variant you can decide upon? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting corporations out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different web space hosting brand names around the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel site hosting CP and platform, named differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on today's website hosting market is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based web space hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps met all web space hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Point No.1: A dumb domain folder system

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely attentive not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to remove on the server, because they all are situated 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. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here is located)
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 name)
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 growing nonplussed? We clearly are!

Downside No.2: The very same email folder structure

The mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin chums firmly enhance their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Drawback No.3: A total absence of domain management menus

Do we need to bring up the sheer lack of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, change domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" interface at all. That's a big inconvenience. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Problem Number Four: Numerous user login places (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the demand for an additional login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain and technical support administration user interface? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting distributor. At times, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (particularly devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting vendor is utilizing, the eager clients can end up with two additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration software platform; 2: the ticket support platform), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (including cPanel).

Drawback No.5: More than 120 web page hosting Control Panel sections to memorize... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better memorize them briskly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel site hosting vendors:

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