cPanel Hosting Description
For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offerings on the present website hosting marketplace are generated by a quite unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small marketing segment, which furnishes an enormous amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering the very same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting market furnish one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/hosting CP alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...
200k "Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named
The Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are just an ordinary bloke who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting variant you can opt for? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 web hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brands all over the world will offer you the very same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the contemporary website hosting market is... Period.
The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple arithmetic shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in 50...
The pros and cons of the cPanel Hosting solution
Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably fulfilled most web hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...
Predicament Number One: An idiotic domain folder setup
If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely cautious 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 remove on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous 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 attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure is:public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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)
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)
Are you becoming nonplussed? We categorically are!
Negative Sign No.2: The very same email folder configuration
The email folder configuration on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly reinforce their faith in God when handling the e-mail folders on the mail server, praying not to botch things up too irreparably.
Drawback Number Three: A total deficiency of domain name manipulation sections
Do we need to bring up the absolute lack of a contemporary domain management tool - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois details, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" section at all. That's a considerable predicament. An unforgettable one, we want to point out...
Inconvenience Number 4: Many user login places (minimum 2, maximum three)
How about the necessity for an additional login to use the invoicing, domain and technical support management section? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Hosting provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the billing transaction system (especially conceived for cPanel only) the cPanel Hosting service provider is availing of, the eager customers can end up with two extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain name management software; 2: the ticket support software), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).
Drawback No.5: 120+ website hosting CP departments to grasp... promptly
cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get to know them quickly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.
With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Hosting firms:
As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one too...
