cPanel Web Hosting Description
For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel web hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite inconsiderable business segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-size marketing segment, which generates a vast number of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing one and the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace offer the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are identical. Very much alike. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. So, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...
200k "web hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently named
The web hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just a normal chap who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web page making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and websites. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200k web hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different hosting brand names worldwide will give you literally the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the present web hosting market is... Full stop.
The web hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple math shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...
The positive and negative sides of the cPanel web hosting solution
Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably answered all web hosting market demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...
Negative Sign No.1: A dumb domain name folder configuration
If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the web hosting server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very 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 attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder structure is:public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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)
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 getting confused? We positively are!
Disadvantage Number Two: The same email folder configuration
The e-mail folder configuration on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The admin chaps strongly strengthen their faith in God when handling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to muck things up too badly.
Shortcoming Number Three: An utter lack of domain manipulation interfaces
Do we need to cite the total shortage of a modern domain management user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois info, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a major downside. An unpardonable one, we want to add...
Weak Side Number 4: Many login places (min two, max three)
What about the need for another login to use the billing, domain name and technical support management section? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting distributor. Occasionally, depending on the billing transaction system (particularly developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting service provider is making use of, the avid users can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).
Weakness Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP sections to become acquainted with... fast
cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them quickly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.
With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel web hosting vendors:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one as well...
