How cPanel Website Hosting Functions

For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting market are furnished by a very insignificant marketing segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-size business niche, which furnishes an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole hosting market furnish the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

The website hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Assume you are simply an average chap who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting variant you can decide upon? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200k web hosting suppliers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names worldwide will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on the contemporary web hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably satisfied most web hosting industry preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Inconvenience Number One: An imbecilic domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extra watchful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to remove on the web server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very 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 attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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 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 name)

Are you becoming confused? We unquestionably are!

Problem Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder system

The email folder structure on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly reinforce their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the email server, praying not to bungle things up too badly.

Negative Side Number Three: A sheer shortage of domain name administration interfaces

Do we have to bring up the sheer deficiency of a modern domain manipulation interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an immense inconvenience. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Negative Side Number 4: Many user login locations (min two, max three)

How about the demand for an additional login to use the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support management tool? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting firm. Now and then, on the basis of the invoice transaction system (especially made for cPanel solely) the cPanel website hosting vendor is utilizing, the earnest users can wind up with two extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain management GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), winding up with an aggregate of three login places (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience Number Five: More than 120 web hosting CP menus to learn... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a wonderful idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up promptly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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