cPanel Website Hosting Description
For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on the present website hosting marketplace are provided by a very insignificant marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-sized marketing niche, which generates a vast amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering the very same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the entire hosting market offer absolutely the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel web hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/Control Panel choice. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, note that one...
200,000 "web hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded
The web hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are only a regular bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web page making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200,000 website hosting firms in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names around the world will give you literally the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the diversity on today's hosting marketplace is... Period.
The web hosting LOTTO we are all part of
Simple math reveals that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...
The strong and weak points of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly answered most website hosting business 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...
Negative Sign No.1: A foolish domain folder arrangement
If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the hosting server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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. Observe for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain 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 name)
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 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 becoming confused? We doubtlessly are!
Negative Aspect No.2: The very same mail folder structure
The mail folder structure on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly fortify their faith in God when coping with the email folders on the email server, hoping not to botch things up too gravely.
Weak Side No.3: A sheer deficiency of domain name manipulation sections
Do we need to bring up the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain administration GUI - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois info, shield the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a great inconvenience. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...
Drawback No.4: Many login locations (min two, maximum three)
How about the need for an additional login to access the invoicing, domain name and technical support administration platform? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based web hosting distributor. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoice transaction platform (particularly developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting corporation is utilizing, the avid customers can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain management user interface; 2: the ticket support section), ending up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).
Negative Aspect No.5: 120+ hosting Control Panel menus to get to know... swiftly
cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better pick them up rapidly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.
With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting firms:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one too...
