For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offers on the present-day web hosting market are supplied by a quite insignificant business niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing niche, which furnishes a vast amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing exactly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace supply the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Web Hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/hosting CP choice. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, mind that one...

200,000 "Web Hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The Web Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Assume you are only a regular guy who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the site development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any web hosting variant you can pick? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different website hosting brands all over the world will give you precisely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the present-day web hosting market is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

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

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably met all hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: A foolish domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra cautious not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the web hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is located)
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 name)
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 clearly are!

Negative Side Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The email folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly reinforce their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Weak Point Number Three: A thorough deficiency of domain name management menus

Do we have to refer to the absolute shortage of a contemporary domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, edit domains' Whois information, secure the Whois details, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" section at all. That's a gigantic drawback. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Side Number Four: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, max three)

What about the need for an additional login to make use of the billing transaction, domain and technical support management GUI? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Web Hosting supplier. Sometimes, based on the invoicing transaction platform (principally invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting firm is using, the avid customers can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), winding up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Shortcoming No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel departments to get familiar with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better pick them up rapidly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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