cPanel Hosting Description
For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based hosting offers on the current web hosting market are provided by a quite unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual capital flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing niche, which provides a great amount of different web hosting brand names, yet offering exactly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offerings on the entire hosting marketplace offer the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting price tags are identical. Very identical. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2%, mark that one...
200k "hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed
The hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are only a normal chap who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and web pages. Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 web hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names around the world will offer you the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the contemporary web hosting market is... Full stop.
The hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in
Simple math demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in 50...
The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel-based hosting solution
Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps covered all website hosting industry demands. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Negative Point No.1: A ludicrous domain folder arrangement
If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extra cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are placed 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. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder configuration 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)
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 growing perplexed? We undoubtedly are!
Weakness Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration
The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly enhance their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to bungle things up too irretrievably.
Weakness Number 3: A total absence of domain name administration interfaces
Do we need to refer to the total deficiency of a contemporary domain name management platform - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a colossal predicament. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...
Problem Number 4: Multiple login locations (minimum 2, maximum 3)
What about the need for an extra login to avail of the billing transaction, domain and technical support management interface? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting supplier. At times, on the basis of the invoice transaction platform (principally developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting corporation is making use of, the keen users can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).
Negative Side Number 5: 120+ web hosting Control Panel departments to pick up... briskly
cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ areas inside the website hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to get to know each of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.
With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting firms:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
