cPanel Website Hosting Description
For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offerings on today's website hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insubstantial business niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing segment, which furnishes a great quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying exactly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market supply literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...
200,000 "website hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded
The website hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply an average person who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web site creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and web sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any website hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 web hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different web hosting brand names worldwide will give you strictly the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the current web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.
The website hosting LOTTO we are all part of
Simple math shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...
The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based website hosting solution
Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly answered all website hosting industry preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...
Negative Side No.1: An imbecilic domain folder structure
If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, 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 hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, 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 attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how good cPanel's domain folder setup is:public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 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 getting nonplussed? We undoubtedly are!
Weakness Number Two: The same mail folder system
The email folder structure on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly increase their belief in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to muck things up too fatally.
Negative Sign No.3: An absolute deficiency of domain name manipulation sections
Do we need to cite the complete lack of a contemporary domain name manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois details, shield the Whois info, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" menu at all. That's a gigantic drawback. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...
Inconvenience Number Four: Multiple login places (min two, max three)
What about the necessity for an extra login to access the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration platform? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel website hosting firm. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (principally created for cPanel only) the cPanel website hosting firm is making use of, the avid customers can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration system; 2: the trouble ticket support section), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).
Negative Sign No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP menus to memorize... quickly
cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web hosting CP. It's a great idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them rapidly... That's quite arrogant on cPanel's side.
With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting corporations:
As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
