For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offerings on today's website hosting market are generated by a very inconsiderable business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a kind of a small-size business segment, which provides a vast quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying absolutely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market offer one and the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "Web Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly branded

The Web Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely a regular person who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites. Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200k website hosting firms out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names across the world will give you strictly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based Web Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps satisfied all web hosting industry prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect No.1: A moronic domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you growing confused? We certainly are!

Problem No.2: The very same mail folder configuration

The email folder configuration on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly fortify their belief in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too badly.

Weak Point Number 3: A total absence of domain management user interfaces

Do we have to bring up the entire lack of a contemporary domain name manipulation platform - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, edit domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois info, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" menu at all. That's an enormous predicament. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Weak Point Number 4: Numerous login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the necessity for another login to use the billing, domain and tech support management section? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Web Hosting supplier. Occasionally, based on the billing transaction system (principally meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting firm is using, the eager clients can end up with two extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration GUI; 2: the ticket support user interface), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Disadvantage Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP menus to become familiar with... fast

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them briskly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, 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 as well...
