For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offers on today's website hosting marketplace are provided by a very unsubstantial business segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-size business niche, which furnishes an enormous amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing precisely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace furnish literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. So, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200k hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200,000 "Website Hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The Website Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are just an ordinary fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domain names and online portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 web hosting providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names in the world will give you precisely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the contemporary hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a huge stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably satisfied all website hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness Number 1: An idiotic domain name folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extremely cautious not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to delete on the web server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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 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 name)

Are you becoming confused? We absolutely are!

Weak Point Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder arrangement

The mail folder structure on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly reinforce their faith in God when dealing with the email folders on the email server, hoping not to botch things up too harshly.

Downside Number Three: A thorough absence of domain management sections

Do we have to refer to the utter deficiency of a contemporary domain management menu - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois information, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" user interface at all. That's an enormous inconvenience. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Weak Point Number 4: Many login locations (minimum two, max three)

What about the need for another login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management system? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Website Hosting distributor. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction tool (especially built for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Website Hosting company is using, the ardent clients can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration software platform; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), winding up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Weak Side Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP areas to become acquainted with... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the web hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them rapidly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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