For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel Website Hosting offerings on today's web hosting market are provided by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing segment, which provides a great quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing strictly the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offers on the whole web hosting market provide the very same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP option. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

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

The Website Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are only a regular chap who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the website making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and online portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any website hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200k web hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands across the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly answered most web hosting market requirements. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number 1: An imbecilic domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, though, be ultra watchful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite 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 attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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 name)
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 becoming bewildered? We absolutely are!

Downside Number 2: The same email folder system

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The admin guys strongly fortify their faith in God when tackling the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too gravely.

Problem Number 3: An absolute lack of domain management menus

Do we have to cite the utter deficiency of a modern domain manipulation tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, change domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois details, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a considerable weakness. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Weak Point Number Four: Many user login locations (min two, maximum 3)

How about the demand for an additional login to access the billing, domain and tech support management system? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Website Hosting provider. Now and then, depending on the billing tool (particularly developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting supplier is utilizing, the ardent customers can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain management GUI; 2: the ticket support software), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Disadvantage Number 5: More than 120 Control Panel areas to learn... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better learn them rapidly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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