What Does cPanel Hosting Stand for?

For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insignificant marketing niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small marketing segment, which generates a vast amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying the very same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the entire web hosting market supply literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, note that one...

The hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are just a regular guy who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web page development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brands in the world will give you precisely the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on today's web hosting market is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps fulfilled most website hosting industry prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Inconvenience Number One: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be very cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to erase on the web hosting server, since 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 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 domain names, please. See for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
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)

Are you growing nonplussed? We undeniably are!

Weak Side Number Two: The same email folder configuration

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly increase their belief in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to screw things up too fatally.

Weakness No.3: An entire absence of domain name management options

Do we need to refer to the utter shortage of a contemporary domain manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois details, secure the Whois information, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a gigantic disadvantage. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Problem No.4: Numerous user login locations (min 2, max 3)

What about the necessity for an additional login to make use of the billing, domain name and technical support administration platform? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel hosting provider. At times, depending on the invoice transaction system (particularly meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting service provider is using, the ardent customers can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support tool), ending up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number Five: More than 120 Control Panel menus to get to know... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better grasp them rapidly... That's very impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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