For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel Website Hosting offerings on today's web hosting market are generated by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-sized business segment, which generates a huge quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering the very same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace furnish literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting price tags are similar. Very much alike. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/CP option. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "Website Hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely a normal bloke who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web hosting alternative you can settle on? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200k website hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different hosting brand names worldwide will give you absolutely the same cPanel CP and platform, labeled differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the present web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps satisfied all web hosting industry demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage No.1: A dumb domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be ultra careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to delete on the web server, because they all are located 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 located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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 name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you becoming puzzled? We undeniably are!

Negative Sign No.2: The same mail folder configuration

The email folder structure on the hosting 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, praying not to bungle things up too gravely.

Disadvantage Number 3: An entire lack of domain manipulation sections

Do we need to point out the sheer lack of a modern domain administration user interface - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois information, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a big weakness. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Disadvantage No.4: Multiple user login locations (minimum two, max 3)

How about the demand for another login to access the billing transaction, domain and tech support management software? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Website Hosting vendor. At times, depending on the invoicing transaction system (particularly invented for cPanel only) the cPanel Website Hosting service provider is utilizing, the earnest customers can end up with two additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain management software; 2: the ticket support system), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number Five: More than 120 web hosting Control Panel areas to learn... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them quickly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting suppliers:

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