What Does cPanel Hosting Mean?

For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel website hosting offers on the current web hosting market are generated by a quite insignificant business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing niche, which supplies an immense quantity of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing one and the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the whole website hosting market provide absolutely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel website hosting price tags are similar. Very similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

The website hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply an ordinary chap who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and online portals. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting option you can pick? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200k web hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brands around the world will offer you the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the present-day website hosting market is... Period.

The website hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a big stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly covered most web hosting business preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign Number 1: A foolish domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the hosting server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how fantastic 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)
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 confused? We certainly are!

Negative Point No.2: The same mail folder structure

The e-mail folder configuration on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin boys firmly increase their faith in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the email server, praying not to bungle things up too gravely.

Negative Point No.3: An absolute absence of domain manipulation tools

Do we need to bring up the sheer deficiency of a contemporary domain name management platform - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois information, shield the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a big problem. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Drawback No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the demand for an additional login to make use of the billing transaction, domain and tech support administration software solution? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting vendor. Occasionally, based on the invoice transaction platform (principally developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel website hosting supplier is using, the avid customers can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing/domain management user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Weak Point Number 5: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel sections to become acquainted with... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the CP. It's a glorious idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them promptly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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