How does cpanel site hosting work?

For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel-based hosting offerings on today's web space hosting market are generated by a quite insignificant business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller site hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing segment, which supplies a big quantity of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing strictly the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web space hosting offers on the entire web site hosting market provide one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based site hosting prices are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web site hosting platform/hosting CP alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k web page hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

The web space hosting LOTTO we are all paricipating in

Simple mathematics shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

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

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps met most website hosting business preconditions. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament No.1: A dumb domain folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra watchful not to erase completely 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 name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated 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. Determine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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)
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!

Inconvenience No.2: The same email folder structure

The mail folder structure on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin blokes firmly fortify their faith in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to mess things up too seriously.

Downside Number Three: A sheer lack of domain name manipulation sections

Do we need to refer to the absolute lack of a modern domain manipulation GUI - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois info, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a vast problem. An unjustifiable one, we wish to add...

Shortcoming No.4: Numerous user login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an extra login to utilize the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support management GUI? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel site hosting supplier. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing platform (especially tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is utilizing, the avid customers can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain administration platform; 2: the ticket support user interface), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Inconvenience Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty hosting CP sections to get familiar with... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web page hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them briskly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting distributors:

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