Suppose you have a page called Home.aspx, which uses a master page 'StoreMaster.Master'.

This masterpage has a ContentPlaceHolder called 'cphStore' inside the '<asp:Content' inherited from parent Masterpage called ‘CompanyMaster.master’

Where 'StoreMaster.Master' is a nested masterpage with a parent Masterpage called ‘CompanyMaster.master’. This masterpage has a ContentPlaceHolder called 'cphCompany'.

If you want to access the current ContentPlaceHolder from Home.aspx, we need to go hierarchically.
