Definition of cPanel Web Hosting

For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel hosting offerings on the present website hosting marketplace are generated by a very insubstantial marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which supplies an immense number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying exactly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting market provide literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP option. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Assume you are just an ordinary person who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page development processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and web pages. Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web hosting option you can settle on? Of course there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique hosting brand names all over the world will offer you literally the same cPanel hosting CP and platform, branded differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on today's web hosting market is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple mathematics shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly covered most web hosting business demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Point Number One: An idiotic domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be ultra cautious not to erase 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 remove on the web hosting server, because they all are located 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 name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide 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)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you becoming disorientated? We definitely are!

Shortcoming Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly increase their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too irreparably.

Inconvenience No.3: A total shortage of domain name management interfaces

Do we have to mention the thorough lack of a modern domain management user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois information, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a major drawback. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Inconvenience Number 4: Many login locations (min 2, max 3)

What about the demand for an additional login to access the billing, domain name and tech support management section? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based hosting distributor. Sometimes, based on the invoicing system (especially created for cPanel solely) the cPanel hosting supplier is availing of, the avid customers can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration software; 2: the ticket support GUI), ending up with a total of three login places (including cPanel).

Drawback Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel sections to get to know... swiftly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them rapidly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel hosting companies:

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one as well...
