For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel Hosting offerings on today's website hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small marketing niche, which generates an enormous quantity of different web hosting brands, yet supplying absolutely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole hosting market supply one and the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

200,000 "Hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only a regular chap who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brand names all over the world will offer you the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the present-day website hosting market is... Period.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly met most web hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number 1: A dumb domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extremely attentive not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the hosting server, since they all are created 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 delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder setup 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 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 name)

Are you becoming baffled? We categorically are!

Drawback Number Two: The same mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes strongly enhance their belief in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too irretrievably.

Shortcoming No.3: An utter absence of domain name administration options

Do we have to bring up the complete absence of a contemporary domain manipulation interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois details, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a mammoth disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Sign No.4: Many user login places (minimum two, maximum three)

How about the necessity for an extra login to access the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support management system? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based Hosting service provider. At times, on the basis of the invoicing platform (particularly developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting firm is using, the enthusiastic users can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support interface), ending up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Downside No.5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel menus to get acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Hosting service providers:

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