cPanel Website Hosting Description
For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel web hosting offers on the current website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a kind of a small-scale business segment, which furnishes a great amount of different web hosting brands, yet providing exactly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market furnish the very same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...
200k "web hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named
The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply an ordinary chap who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any hosting variant you can decide upon? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 website hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands all over the world will give you the very same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.
The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of
Simple mathematics demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a great strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in 50...
The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based web hosting solution
Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps fulfilled most web hosting industry prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Negative Side No.1: A moronic domain name folder setup
If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name 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 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 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)
Are you getting perplexed? We certainly are!
Negative Point Number 2: The very same email folder system
The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin guys firmly reinforce their belief in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to screw things up too irreparably.
Weak Side No.3: An utter lack of domain manipulation tools
Do we have to refer to the complete lack of a modern domain name manipulation tool - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois details, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a huge predicament. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...
Negative Sign Number 4: Multiple login places (min two, maximum three)
What about the need for an extra login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support management software platform? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting service provider. Occasionally, depending on the billing transaction system (particularly tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the ardent customers can wind up with two additional login places (1: the billing/domain name administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).
Downside No.5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting CP sections to get acquainted with... promptly
cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the CP. It's a glorious idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them quickly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.
With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting companies:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one as well...
