For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offers on the current website hosting market are furnished by a very insubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which supplies a great quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying absolutely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace provide the very same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "Hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely labeled

The Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just a regular chap who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and web portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any hosting alternative you can decide upon? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200k web hosting vendors in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brand names across the world will offer you the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on the current website hosting market is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly met most web hosting business requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weakness Number One: A stupid domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extremely cautious not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to erase on the server, since 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 is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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 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 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 becoming disorientated? We absolutely are!

Negative Side Number 2: The same mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly strengthen their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Drawback Number Three: An entire absence of domain name management sections

Do we need to point out the absolute shortage of a contemporary domain name manipulation menu - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domains' Whois information, shield the Whois details, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a colossal disadvantage. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

Problem No.4: Many login places (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the necessity for an additional login to avail of the invoicing, domain and technical support management menu? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Hosting distributor. At times, based on the billing system (especially devised for cPanel only) the cPanel Hosting firm is availing of, the zealous customers can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration system; 2: the ticket support software platform), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel sections to become familiar with... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to grasp each of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's excessively insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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