How does cpanel web site hosting work?
For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offers on the present website hosting marketplace are provided by a quite unsubstantial business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small business segment, which generates a great amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying precisely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web page hosting offerings on the whole site hosting market supply one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web space hosting platform/CP option. So, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web page hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...
200k "web hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet diversely named
The webspace hosting "variety" and the webspace hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just a normal person who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web page development procedures and the web site hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web pages . Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any webspace hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 website hosting suppliers in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names in the world will give you strictly the same cPanel web page hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the present-day web space hosting marketplace is... Full stop.
The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of
Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...
The positive and negative sides of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably satisfied all site hosting industry prerequisites. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...
Inconvenience Number 1: A ludicrous domain name folder arrangement
If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extra careful not to remove completely 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 domains are quite easy to erase on the server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous 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 delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder system 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)
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 confused? We clearly are!
Predicament Number Two: The same email folder system
The e-mail folder arrangement on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly strengthen their belief in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to bungle things up too severely.
Negative Sign Number 3: An entire absence of domain name management options
Do we need to refer to the thorough deficiency of a modern domain management tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domains' Whois details, shield the Whois details, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a gigantic weakness. An unforgivable one, we want to add...
Negative Point Number 4: Numerous login places (min two, maximum 3)
How about the necessity for an additional login to utilize the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management section? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel webspace hosting vendor. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoice transaction system (particularly invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the devoted clients can wind up with two additional login places (1: the billing/domain management platform; 2: the ticket support platform), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).
Negative Aspect Number 5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel departments to grasp... swiftly
cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the site hosting CP. It's a superb idea to pick up each one of them. And you'd better get to know them promptly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.
With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one as well...
