For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offerings on the current web hosting marketplace are generated by a very unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-size marketing niche, which supplies a vast number of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying absolutely the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market supply absolutely the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200,000 "Website Hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The Website Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply an average guy who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web pages. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any hosting variant you can opt for? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200k website hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names around the world will give you the very same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the present hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably covered all web hosting market requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Predicament No.1: A dumb domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra careful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to remove on the server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated 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. Observe for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
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)
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 name)

Are you getting perplexed? We unquestionably are!

Shortcoming Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder structure

The mail folder configuration on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly fortify their belief in God when managing the email folders on the email server, hoping not to screw things up too irretrievably.

Disadvantage No.3: A thorough deficiency of domain name administration sections

Do we have to cite the complete shortage of a contemporary domain manipulation GUI - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois info, secure the Whois details, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a big problem. An unjustifiable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Aspect Number 4: Many login places (minimum two, maximum three)

How about the need for another login to utilize the billing transaction, domain name and technical support management software solution? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Website Hosting firm. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoice transaction tool (principally designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting firm is using, the zealous customers can wind up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Side No.5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting CP sections to memorize... swiftly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a superb idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them briskly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting vendors:

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