What Does cPanel Web Hosting Denote?
For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel web hosting offerings on today's web hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-size marketing segment, which generates a great amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering exactly the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace furnish the very same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are alike. Very similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/CP choice. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...
Two hundred thousand "web hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled
The web hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just a regular guy who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and websites. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any web hosting option you can opt for? Of course there is, today there are more than 200,000 web hosting companies in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique hosting brands all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on the contemporary website hosting marketplace is... Period.
The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of
Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a great stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...
The upsides and downsides of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably fulfilled most hosting business prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Disadvantage No.1: A foolish domain folder structure
If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be very attentive not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new 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 remove on the web hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder arrangement 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)
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 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 nonplussed? We categorically are!
Weak Side No.2: The same electronic mail folder configuration
The e-mail folder configuration on the server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin boys firmly strengthen their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the email server, praying not to muck things up too severely.
Inconvenience No.3: An utter absence of domain management sections
Do we have to bring up the complete deficiency of a modern domain administration tool - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a gigantic weakness. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...
Negative Point Number Four: Numerous user login locations (min 2, max 3)
How about the necessity for an extra login to use the billing, domain name and tech support administration platform? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based web hosting vendor. At times, on the basis of the invoice transaction tool (particularly meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting corporation is using, the ardent clients can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain management GUI; 2: the ticket support platform), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).
Disadvantage Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel departments to become familiar with... briskly
cPanel offers to your attention 120+ menus inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to memorize each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them fast... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.
With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting companies:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
