Description of cPanel Web Hosting
For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offerings on the current web hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet providing exactly the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace provide literally the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/hosting CP option. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...
Two hundred thousand "web hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled
The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely an ordinary person who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the website development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and web portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any website hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than 200,000 website hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands around the world will give you strictly the same cPanel Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the present-day website hosting market is... Period.
The web hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in 50...
The positive and negative points of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps fulfilled all web hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Weak Side No.1: An idiotic domain name folder structure
If you have two or more domains, however, be extra cautious not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder system 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 name)
Are you becoming puzzled? We positively are!
Weakness Number 2: The very same email folder configuration
The mail folder configuration on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums firmly fortify their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to screw things up too seriously.
Problem Number 3: An absolute deficiency of domain name management user interfaces
Do we need to refer to the thorough lack of a modern domain name management platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a great disadvantage. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...
Shortcoming Number 4: Many user login places (minimum two, maximum three)
How about the need for another login to utilize the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support management menu? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel web hosting company. Now and then, based on the billing platform (especially conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel web hosting service provider is utilizing, the eager clients can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support software solution), winding up with a total of 3 login places (counting cPanel).
Shortcoming Number Five: 120+ web hosting Control Panel departments to become acquainted with... swiftly
cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better pick them up rapidly... That's way too impudent on cPanel's side.
With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting distributors:
As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one as well...
