For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offers on the current web hosting market are supplied by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing segment, which provides an immense amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering strictly the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace provide one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. So, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

200k "Hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply a regular guy who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domain names and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting alternative you can opt for? Of course there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting vendors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names around the world will give you strictly the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the current website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably satisfied all web hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Predicament Number 1: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be very attentive not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous 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 domains, please. See for yourself how amazing 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)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain)
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 puzzled? We unquestionably are!

Disadvantage Number Two: The very same email folder arrangement

The e-mail folder structure on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin guys firmly enhance their faith in God when dealing with the email folders on the email server, praying not to muck things up too harshly.

Disadvantage Number Three: A complete shortage of domain administration menus

Do we have to refer to the sheer deficiency of a modern domain name manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois information, secure the Whois information, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a major problem. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Downside Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an extra login to avail of the billing transaction, domain name and tech support management interface? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Hosting service provider. At times, on the basis of the invoicing transaction system (especially tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting supplier is using, the enthusiastic clients can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain name management GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), winding up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Weakness No.5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel sections to become acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ areas inside the hosting CP. It's a fantastic idea to get familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them swiftly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Note that one as well...
