For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offers on the current website hosting marketplace are generated by a quite insubstantial business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized business segment, which furnishes a huge amount of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying strictly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the entire hosting marketplace supply absolutely the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting prices are identical. Very similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. So, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

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

The Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely a regular guy who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the site development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web pages. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique hosting brands in the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the present-day web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly answered most web hosting business prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming Number One: A stupid domain name folder system

If you have two or more domain names, though, be very attentive not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). 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, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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)
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 getting confused? We clearly are!

Negative Sign No.2: The very same electronic mail folder structure

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin boys firmly fortify their belief in God when managing the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too seriously.

Weakness Number Three: A sheer absence of domain administration interfaces

Do we need to point out the complete absence of a modern domain manipulation GUI - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois info, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a considerable weakness. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Weak Point No.4: Many user login locations (min 2, max three)

What about the demand for another login to avail of the invoicing, domain name and tech support management user interface? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Hosting vendor. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (particularly meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel Hosting firm is using, the zealous clients can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management software; 2: the ticket support section), winding up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Downside Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel areas to become acquainted with... quickly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 areas inside the CP. It's a wonderful idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them quickly... That's extremely impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Hosting distributors:

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