Description of cPanel Hosting
For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offers on the present website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very unsubstantial business segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing segment, which generates a vast quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying precisely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire hosting marketplace furnish one and the very same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mind that one...
200,000 "web hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named
The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are just an average guy who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web portals. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting variant you can decide upon? Of course there is, at present there are more than 200k web hosting providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brands across the world will give you the very same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the contemporary web hosting market is... Period.
The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in
Simple mathematics reveals that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...
The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based web hosting solution
Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly covered all web hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...
Drawback Number 1: An imbecilic domain name folder arrangement
If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to erase on the hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder structure 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 name)
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)
Are you getting nonplussed? We undoubtedly are!
Weak Point Number 2: The same e-mail folder arrangement
The electronic mail folder structure on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly fortify their faith in God when managing the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to mess things up too severely.
Negative Aspect No.3: A complete shortage of domain management options
Do we need to mention the entire deficiency of a contemporary domain name manipulation tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois information, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" tool at all. That's a gigantic shortcoming. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...
Downside Number 4: Many user login locations (minimum 2, maximum 3)
How about the need for another login to use the invoicing, domain and technical support management tool? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting service provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction system (principally tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting firm is using, the earnest users can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the billing/domain name administration tool; 2: the trouble ticket support section), winding up with an aggregate of three login locations (including cPanel).
Negative Aspect Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel departments to get to know... briskly
cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better get to know them swiftly... That's inordinately insolent 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? Note that one too...
