cPanel Web Hosting Unveiled
For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on today's web hosting market are supplied by a very inconsiderable business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small marketing niche, which generates a big number of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing absolutely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace provide the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, remark that one...
Two hundred thousand "website hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed
The website hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are only a regular fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web page making processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting alternative you can decide upon? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200,000 website hosting corporations in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names around the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.
The website hosting LOTTO we are all part of
Simple math demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...
The positive and negative points of the cPanel website hosting solution
Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps covered all website hosting industry preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Disadvantage No.1: A dumb domain folder configuration
If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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)
Are you getting nonplussed? We categorically are!
Weak Point Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder arrangement
The email folder structure on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly strengthen their belief in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to bungle things up too seriously.
Predicament Number Three: A sheer lack of domain manipulation interfaces
Do we have to bring up the entire deficiency of a modern domain name administration interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois information, change/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a big weakness. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...
Negative Sign Number Four: Numerous login locations (minimum 2, max three)
How about the need for another login to access the billing, domain and technical support administration platform? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based website hosting vendor. Now and then, on the basis of the invoice transaction tool (especially meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel website hosting corporation is availing of, the ardent users can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration GUI; 2: the ticket support tool), winding up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).
Predicament Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel areas to get familiar with... promptly
cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them swiftly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.
With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel website hosting firms:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one too...
