cPanel Hosting Explanation
For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offers on today's website hosting market are provided by a very insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small business segment, which supplies an enormous quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet offering strictly the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the whole website hosting market provide precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are alike. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, note that one...
Two hundred thousand "Hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed
The Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are only an average chap who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting alternative you can decide upon? Of course there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different website hosting brands worldwide will offer you the very same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the present-day web hosting marketplace is... Period.
The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple mathematics shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...
The positive and negative points of the cPanel Hosting solution
Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly fulfilled all web hosting market requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Negative Aspect Number 1: A foolish domain folder structure
If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra watchful not to erase completely 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 quite simple to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover 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 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 bewildered? We unquestionably are!
Weak Point No.2: The same email folder arrangement
The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly reinforce their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too badly.
Downside Number 3: An utter lack of domain name management user interfaces
Do we have to bring up the entire deficiency of a modern domain management tool - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domains' Whois information, shield the Whois details, change/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" tool at all. That's a gigantic problem. An inexcusable one, we want to add...
Drawback No.4: Numerous login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)
How about the demand for an additional login to use the invoicing, domain and technical support administration user interface? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Hosting service provider. Occasionally, depending on the billing transaction system (especially designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel Hosting firm is making use of, the ardent clients can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing/domain name administration interface; 2: the trouble ticket support section), winding up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).
Shortcoming Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty hosting CP menus to become familiar with... fast
cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a wonderful idea to pick up each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them swiftly... That's inordinately impudent on cPanel's side.
With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Hosting service providers:
As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
