cPanel Hosting Description
For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based web hosting offerings on the contemporary website hosting marketplace are generated by a quite unsubstantial marketing niche (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-scale business niche, which furnishes a great amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing precisely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting market offer the very same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...
200k "web hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed
The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are just a regular fellow who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and websites. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting alternative you can settle on? Sure there is, now there are more than 200,000 website hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands in the world will offer you the same cPanel CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.
The web hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple math shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a huge stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in 50...
The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably satisfied all web hosting market preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...
Negative Side Number One: A foolish domain folder structure
If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extra careful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the web server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very 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 delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder system 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 name)
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)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
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 growing puzzled? We undeniably are!
Negative Aspect No.2: The same mail folder system
The electronic mail folder structure on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly fortify their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too irreparably.
Negative Side No.3: A thorough deficiency of domain name manipulation user interfaces
Do we have to refer to the utter deficiency of a modern domain administration interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois info, protect the Whois information, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a considerable predicament. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...
Weakness Number Four: Numerous login locations (minimum 2, max 3)
How about the need for an extra login to use the invoicing, domain and tech support management software solution? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web hosting vendor. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing tool (particularly invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is making use of, the eager users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), winding up with a total of three login places (counting cPanel).
Negative Point No.5: More than 120 web hosting CP departments to get to know... briskly
cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the web hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to become familiar with each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them promptly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.
With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting firms:
As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Note that one as well...
