For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offerings on today's web hosting marketplace are provided by a quite insignificant business niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-size marketing segment, which generates a vast amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying precisely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace provide exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Web Hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP option. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "Web Hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The Web Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to us boil down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are just an ordinary fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the site creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting variant you can settle on? Of course there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands all over the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the current website hosting market is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a mammoth strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel-based Web Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps met most website hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side No.1: A ludicrous domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are created 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 located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder setup 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)
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)

Are you growing disorientated? We doubtlessly are!

Disadvantage No.2: The same electronic mail folder arrangement

The mail folder structure on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin guys firmly reinforce their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the mail server, praying not to mess things up too seriously.

Weak Side No.3: A total shortage of domain name administration sections

Do we need to mention the total lack of a modern domain manipulation tool - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois info, protect the Whois information, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" section at all. That's a considerable predicament. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Shortcoming No.4: Many user login locations (minimum two, max 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to access the invoice transaction, domain and technical support management menu? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based Web Hosting provider. Now and then, based on the invoicing platform (particularly invented for cPanel only) the cPanel Web Hosting corporation is using, the zealous clients can wind up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing/domain name administration interface; 2: the trouble ticket support interface), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Inconvenience Number 5: More than 120 web hosting Control Panel menus to pick up... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to grasp each of them. And you'd better learn them swiftly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one too...
