Description of cPanel Hosting
For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offerings on today's web hosting market are supplied by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which generates a huge number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting market supply literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...
Two hundred thousand "web hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded
The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an average bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brands across the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on today's web hosting marketplace is... Period.
The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in
Simple arithmetic shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...
The upsides and downsides of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps satisfied most web hosting market prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...
Drawback Number 1: An idiotic domain folder configuration
If you have two or more domains, however, be extremely cautious not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the hosting server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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 domain names, please. Check for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder setup 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 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)
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 growing baffled? We undeniably are!
Negative Point Number 2: The same email folder structure
The e-mail folder structure on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly increase their faith in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too fatally.
Negative Side Number 3: An absolute shortage of domain management sections
Do we need to bring up the absolute shortage of a modern domain name manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois information, change/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an immense weakness. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...
Weakness Number Four: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, maximum three)
What about the demand for an additional login to use the billing, domain and tech support management software solution? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web hosting vendor. Now and then, depending on the invoicing transaction system (especially meant for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting supplier is utilizing, the devoted customers can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support software), winding up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).
Downside Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel sections to grasp... fast
cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to pick up each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them briskly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.
With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting corporations:
As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Note that one as well...
