For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Website Hosting offers on the current website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insubstantial business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which furnishes a vast amount of different web hosting brand names, yet offering precisely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace supply precisely the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

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

The Website Hosting "variety" and the hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely a regular fellow who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting option you can decide upon? Sure there is, now there are more than 200k web hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brand names around the world will offer you the very same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a gigantic 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 pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

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

Disadvantage No.1: An idiotic domain folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely watchful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous 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 domain names, please. Check for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder setup 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 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 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 baffled? We unquestionably are!

Negative Side Number Two: The very same mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder structure on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly reinforce their faith in God when handling the mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too badly.

Problem No.3: An utter deficiency of domain name manipulation tools

Do we need to point out the thorough lack of a modern domain name administration interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domains' Whois information, protect the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's an enormous drawback. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Multiple login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the need for an additional login to utilize the billing, domain name and tech support management system? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Website Hosting company. Now and then, on the basis of the invoice transaction tool (principally designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting vendor is utilizing, the devoted customers can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management software; 2: the ticket support menu), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty CP departments to pick up... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a marvelous idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them rapidly... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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