Description of cPanel Web Hosting
For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting market are supplied by a very insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which furnishes a huge amount of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing precisely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the entire website hosting market offer the very same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are alike. Quite identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...
Two hundred thousand "website hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed
The website hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an average fellow who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web site creation processes and the hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200k web hosting providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brand names across the world will give you exactly the same cPanel hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the present website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.
The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in
Simple arithmetic reveals that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...
The strong and weak points of the cPanel website hosting solution
Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly fulfilled most web hosting industry demands. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...
Negative Point Number One: A laughable domain folder configuration
If you have two or more domains, however, be extra careful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the web server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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 amazing cPanel's domain folder configuration 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 name)
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)
Are you becoming puzzled? We clearly are!
Shortcoming Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder system
The e-mail folder structure on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly enhance their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to screw things up too fatally.
Predicament No.3: A total absence of domain name manipulation user interfaces
Do we need to mention the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain administration interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, edit domains' Whois information, protect the Whois information, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" interface at all. That's a great disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...
Negative Aspect No.4: Numerous user login places (min two, maximum 3)
How about the demand for an additional login to make use of the billing transaction, domain name and tech support administration interface? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based website hosting provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the billing transaction platform (particularly intended for cPanel solely) the cPanel website hosting supplier is utilizing, the earnest users can wind up with two extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain administration interface; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of three user login places (including cPanel).
Shortcoming Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP menus to memorize... fast
cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them promptly... That's excessively insolent on cPanel's side.
With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting companies:
As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
