For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel Website Hosting offerings on the present website hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which provides a big number of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering literally the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace offer absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting price tags are identical. Very similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "Website Hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply a normal bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any website hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200k website hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the present web hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a big stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

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 possibly answered all web hosting market demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage Number 1: A foolish domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the hosting server, since they all are set up 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 located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 baffled? We doubtlessly are!

Weakness Number Two: The very same mail folder system

The email folder structure on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Weakness Number Three: A total deficiency of domain management menus

Do we have to refer to the total deficiency of a modern domain manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois details, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" user interface at all. That's an enormous downside. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Negative Side Number 4: Multiple user login places (minimum two, max three)

How about the necessity for another login to avail of the billing, domain name and technical support administration menu? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Website Hosting service provider. At times, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (especially devised for cPanel only) the cPanel Website Hosting vendor is utilizing, the devoted customers can end up with two extra login locations (1: the invoicing/domain name management tool; 2: the trouble ticket support system), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Shortcoming No.5: More than one hundred and twenty Control Panel sections to become familiar with... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ menus inside the web hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get to know them swiftly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Website Hosting suppliers:

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