How does cpanel-based hosting function?

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based web page hosting offers on the present web space hosting marketplace are generated by a very insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale business segment, which generates an enormous number of different web hosting brand names, yet offering literally the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offerings on the entire web page hosting market furnish strictly the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/web page hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web page hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200k "web space hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The web space hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web space hosting brand names.

Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any web site hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand site hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web space hosting brands worldwide will offer you precisely the same cPanel web page hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on today's website hosting market is... Period.

The webspace hosting LOTTERY we are all paricipating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel web space hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly covered most webspace hosting business requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Inconvenience Number One: A moronic domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new 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, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you becoming bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Inconvenience Number Two: The very same e-mail folder arrangement

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums strongly strengthen their belief in God when handling the email folders on the mail server, praying not to muck things up too irretrievably.

Negative Aspect No.3: A total lack of domain name manipulation menus

Do we need to point out the entire shortage of a contemporary domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois details, shield the Whois details, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a big shortcoming. An unforgettable one, we would like to point out...

Weak Point Number Four: Numerous login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the necessity for another login to utilize the billing, domain and tech support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting firm. Now and then, on the basis of the invoicing system (especially developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting provider is availing of, the enthusiastic users can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain management section; 2: the trouble ticket support system), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Downside Number Five: 120+ website hosting Control Panel areas to become familiar with... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to get familiar with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them promptly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting corporations:

As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
