cPanel Web Hosting Disclosed
For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based hosting offers on the present-day website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a kind of a small-sized marketing segment, which generates an immense number of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing the very same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting market supply one and the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel hosting prices are identical. Very similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...
200k "hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded
The hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely a regular chap who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and websites. Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200,000 website hosting firms out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brand names across the world will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the contemporary website hosting market is... Period.
The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple mathematics reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...
The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based hosting solution
Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps fulfilled most web hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Predicament Number 1: A stupid domain name folder arrangement
If you have two or more domains, however, be extremely careful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated 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. Examine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure 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)
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 name)
Are you growing disorientated? We categorically are!
Drawback Number Two: The very same email folder configuration
The e-mail folder structure on the server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin boys firmly fortify their faith in God when handling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too irreparably.
Inconvenience No.3: An utter shortage of domain name manipulation tools
Do we have to cite the total shortage of a modern domain name administration user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois details, protect the Whois information, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" section at all. That's a gigantic inconvenience. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...
Problem Number Four: Numerous login places (min 2, max 3)
How about the necessity for an additional login to make use of the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support administration menu? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel hosting vendor. Occasionally, based on the billing transaction platform (especially designed for cPanel only) the cPanel hosting vendor is utilizing, the eager users can end up with two additional login places (1: the billing/domain name administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of three login places (counting cPanel).
Negative Aspect Number 5: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel sections to grasp... briskly
cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better learn them fast... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.
With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based hosting suppliers:
As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
