What Exactly is cPanel Web Hosting?

For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel hosting offers on today's web hosting marketplace are supplied by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-scale business segment, which provides a huge number of different web hosting brand names, yet offering absolutely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace offer exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely an ordinary chap who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and sites. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands worldwide will give you exactly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the current web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably answered most web hosting industry prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number One: A stupid domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous 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 try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you growing baffled? We certainly are!

Problem No.2: The same mail folder structure

The electronic mail folder structure on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly reinforce their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too severely.

Weak Side No.3: An entire absence of domain administration sections

Do we need to point out the thorough lack of a modern domain administration GUI - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, edit domains' Whois info, secure the Whois information, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a gigantic inconvenience. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Weak Side Number 4: Many user login places (min two, maximum 3)

How about the need for an extra login to avail of the billing, domain name and tech support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel hosting company. At times, on the basis of the billing system (particularly meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting vendor is using, the keen clients can wind up with two extra login places (1: the billing/domain management menu; 2: the ticket support user interface), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number 5: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel menus to become acquainted with... fast

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to grasp each of them. And you'd better become familiar with them briskly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based hosting suppliers:

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