cPanel Hosting Description
For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the current web hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing segment, which generates an immense amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing strictly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market furnish literally the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...
200,000 "website hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named
The website hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are just a normal bloke who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, now there are more than 200k web hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different hosting brands worldwide will offer you the same cPanel CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the contemporary website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.
The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple math shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...
The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based website hosting solution
Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly satisfied all web hosting business demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...
Weak Side Number One: A ludicrous domain folder arrangement
If you have two or more domains, though, be very cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the hosting server, because they all are situated 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 situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain 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 name)
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)
Are you growing perplexed? We absolutely are!
Inconvenience Number 2: The very same mail folder system
The email folder structure on the server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps strongly fortify their faith in God when coping with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too irreparably.
Drawback Number 3: A thorough shortage of domain name management GUIs
Do we need to mention the complete shortage of a modern domain name administration interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois details, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a considerable weakness. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...
Shortcoming Number 4: Multiple login locations (min two, maximum three)
How about the necessity for an additional login to access the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration software platform? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel website hosting corporation. Occasionally, based on the invoicing tool (particularly designed for cPanel only) the cPanel website hosting supplier is using, the ardent users can wind up with two extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration GUI; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).
Inconvenience Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel menus to get acquainted with... swiftly
cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a superb idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better pick them up briskly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.
With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting distributors:
As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
