For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offers on the present-day website hosting market are provided by a quite insignificant business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small marketing niche, which furnishes an immense quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet offering absolutely the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market offer the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

200k "Website Hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an ordinary guy who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the site creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and online portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any hosting option you can choose? Of course there is, at present there are more than 200,000 hosting service providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique hosting brands worldwide will offer you strictly the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the present-day website hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably met most hosting market prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign Number One: A laughable domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra attentive not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next 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 delete on the server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular 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 try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain folder setup 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)
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 puzzled? We absolutely are!

Weak Side Number Two: The same electronic mail folder setup

The mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps strongly strengthen their faith in God when handling the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to muck things up too irretrievably.

Predicament Number Three: An absolute absence of domain name administration interfaces

Do we have to cite the absolute lack of a contemporary domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois information, shield the Whois information, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a mammoth disadvantage. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...

Inconvenience Number Four: Multiple user login places (minimum two, max three)

What about the necessity for an extra login to utilize the billing, domain name and technical support management GUI? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Website Hosting service provider. At times, on the basis of the billing tool (principally conceived for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting distributor is availing of, the eager users can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the billing/domain name management user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support system), winding up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Weak Point Number Five: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel menus to pick up... promptly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them promptly... That's excessively insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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