For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offerings on today's website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small-sized business niche, which provides a great number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing exactly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace supply literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel Web Hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "Web Hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The Web Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Assume you are only an average fellow who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web page creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 website hosting providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different web hosting brands worldwide will offer you the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on today's web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps satisfied all website hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: A foolish domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely watchful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new 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 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 is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder setup is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 disorientated? We absolutely are!

Weak Side Number 2: The same electronic mail folder arrangement

The email folder arrangement on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly reinforce their belief in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to botch things up too badly.

Problem Number 3: A sheer absence of domain name manipulation menus

Do we have to point out the thorough absence of a modern domain name administration user interface - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois info, secure the Whois information, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" section at all. That's a colossal drawback. An unforgettable one, we would like to add...

Negative Point Number Four: Many login places (min 2, max three)

What about the need for an extra login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support administration software? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Web Hosting firm. Occasionally, depending on the billing transaction platform (especially devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel Web Hosting distributor is making use of, the ardent users can wind up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), ending up with an aggregate of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Downside No.5: More than 120 hosting CP departments to get to know... swiftly

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a terrific idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better grasp them briskly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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