cPanel Website Hosting Unveiled

For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel hosting offerings on today's web hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insignificant marketing niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which supplies a huge amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing absolutely the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace provide exactly the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mind that one...

The hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are only an ordinary bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site making processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and online portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting option you can settle on? Sure there is, today there are more than 200,000 website hosting vendors in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands worldwide will give you exactly the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the present website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps satisfied most web hosting market requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness Number 1: An imbecilic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra careful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, 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 located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known 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 erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you growing confused? We definitely are!

Negative Side No.2: The very same electronic mail folder system

The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly increase their faith in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to muck things up too gravely.

Predicament No.3: An utter deficiency of domain manipulation options

Do we have to point out the thorough shortage of a modern domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois information, protect the Whois details, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a big downside. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Disadvantage Number Four: Many login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the demand for an extra login to use the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support administration GUI? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting firm. At times, based on the invoicing transaction tool (especially intended for cPanel only) the cPanel hosting provider is using, the avid clients can end up with two extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain management tool; 2: the trouble ticket support software), winding up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Side No.5: More than 120 website hosting CP sections to pick up... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them promptly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
