Description of cPanel Hosting
For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offerings on the current web hosting market are generated by a very unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small business niche, which supplies a big amount of different web hosting brand names, yet offering precisely the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market offer one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP option. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...
200k "Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled
The Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are only a normal chap who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site creation procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and sites. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any web hosting option you can select? Of course there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting firms out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brands all over the world will give you the very same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the contemporary website hosting market is... Period.
The Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in
Simple mathematics reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...
The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based Hosting solution
Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly answered all website hosting industry preconditions. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Disadvantage Number One: A foolish domain folder arrangement
If you have two or more domain names, though, be very watchful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular 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 system 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 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 name)
Are you growing nonplussed? We clearly are!
Weak Side Number 2: The same electronic mail folder structure
The e-mail folder structure on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.
Downside Number 3: A complete shortage of domain administration menus
Do we have to refer to the sheer absence of a contemporary domain name manipulation tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois information, shield the Whois details, change/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" interface at all. That's an immense weakness. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...
Negative Sign Number Four: Multiple user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)
What about the need for an additional login to make use of the invoicing, domain name and technical support management interface? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Hosting corporation. Now and then, depending on the billing system (especially devised for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting corporation is using, the zealous customers can end up with two extra login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration software; 2: the ticket support platform), winding up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).
Weak Side No.5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel departments to become acquainted with... fast
cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the website hosting CP. It's a fantastic idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.
With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Hosting companies:
As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one too...
