What Indeed is cPanel Web Hosting?
For your information, it’s good to know that most of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on the present hosting marketplace are provided by a very inconsiderable business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing niche, which generates a huge amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting market offer the same solution: cPanel. There’s no variety at all. Even the cPanel web hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/Control Panel alternative. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one…
Two hundred thousand “web hosting corporations”, all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded
The web hosting “variety” and the web hosting “offerings” Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000’s of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are merely an ordinary person who’s not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, now there are more than 200k website hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here’s where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brands worldwide will give you strictly the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That’s how big the variety on the contemporary web hosting market is… Full stop.
The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in
Simple math demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50…
The strong and weak sides of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let’s not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably fulfilled most website hosting industry prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains…
Predicament Number 1: A moronic domain name folder system
If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extra careful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that’s how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to remove on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how fantastic cPanel’s domain name folder structure 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 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)
Are you growing bewildered? We surely are!
Negative Sign Number 2: The same email folder arrangement
The email folder configuration on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names… Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly reinforce their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to botch things up too irretrievably.
Negative Aspect Number 3: A total lack of domain name manipulation sections
Do we need to cite the total lack of a modern domain name manipulation interface – a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domain names’ Whois information, secure the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not involve such a “contemporary” menu at all. That’s a considerable problem. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out…
Shortcoming Number Four: Many user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)
How about the necessity for an extra login to utilize the invoicing, domain and tech support management user interface? That’s aside from the cPanel login credentials you’ve been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting service provider. Now and then, based on the invoice transaction system (especially devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting corporation is making use of, the enthusiastic users can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing/domain management tool; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (including cPanel).
Drawback No.5: 120+ website hosting CP sections to memorize… rapidly
cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It’s a glorious idea to pick up each of them. And you’d better get to know them swiftly… That’s way too arrogant on cPanel’s side.
With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting vendors:
As far as we are aware of, it’s not the year 2001, is it? Note that one as well…
