For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offerings on the current website hosting marketplace are generated by a quite insignificant business segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small business segment, which supplies an immense amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying the very same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire web hosting marketplace furnish precisely the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

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

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply a regular bloke who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web page creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web hosting option you can settle on? Of course there is, today there are more than 200k hosting firms out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the current web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

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

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably covered most website hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming Number One: An imbecilic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra careful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the hosting server, since they all are set up 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 name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Verify for yourself how amazing 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 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 confused? We clearly are!

Weak Side Number 2: The very same email folder structure

The email folder arrangement on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly increase their belief in God when managing the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too irreparably.

Downside Number Three: An entire deficiency of domain management tools

Do we have to refer to the absolute deficiency of a modern domain management GUI - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, alter/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a huge drawback. An unforgivable one, we wish to point out...

Weak Point Number 4: Multiple user login places (minimum two, max 3)

How about the demand for another login to use the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support administration interface? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Website Hosting company. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (especially tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting corporation is using, the eager users can wind up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration section; 2: the ticket support software), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel menus to get to know... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a marvelous idea to memorize each one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them promptly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting firms:

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