For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Web Hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insignificant marketing niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-scale business niche, which generates a vast amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying exactly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace provide strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "Web Hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The Web Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply an ordinary guy who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web site development processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 web hosting corporations out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands across the world will offer you the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly fulfilled most web hosting market prerequisites. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign No.1: A laughable domain folder system

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra watchful 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 remove on the server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder structure 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)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
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)

Are you growing confused? We absolutely are!

Disadvantage Number Two: The same mail folder structure

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too fatally.

Predicament No.3: An utter absence of domain name administration tools

Do we need to refer to the complete absence of a modern domain administration platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, edit domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois information, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a big weakness. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Disadvantage Number 4: Multiple login places (minimum two, max 3)

How about the demand for an extra login to avail of the billing, domain and tech support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Web Hosting service provider. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (especially made for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting vendor is using, the avid customers can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management system; 2: the ticket support platform), winding up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel areas to pick up... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to learn each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them rapidly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Web Hosting vendors:

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