What Does cPanel Web Hosting Represent?

For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based web hosting offers on the present-day web hosting market are supplied by a very insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which generates an immense number of different web hosting brands, yet providing the very same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace furnish the very same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based web hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "web hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The web hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an average guy who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the site development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting service providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different hosting brands across the world will give you exactly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.

The web hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math reveals that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a mammoth strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel web hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly answered most hosting business requirements. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Shortcoming Number 1: A foolish domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra watchful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are set up 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 situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting confused? We positively are!

Drawback Number Two: The very same email folder setup

The e-mail folder structure on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to mess things up too severely.

Predicament No.3: A sheer deficiency of domain administration menus

Do we need to bring up the entire absence of a modern domain name management tool - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, change/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an enormous downside. An inexcusable one, we would like to add...

Weak Side No.4: Multiple login locations (min two, max 3)

How about the demand for another login to use the invoicing, domain and tech support management section? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel web hosting corporation. Occasionally, on the basis of the billing transaction tool (particularly developed for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting provider is utilizing, the keen users can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management user interface; 2: the ticket support software solution), winding up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Weakness No.5: More than 120 web hosting CP menus to memorize... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a fine idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them quickly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web hosting distributors:

As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
