For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offers on today's web hosting market are supplied by a quite insubstantial business segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-scale marketing niche, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing the very same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting market provide one and the very same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mind that one...

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

The Web Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely a normal bloke who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web site creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and web pages. Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any web hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200k web hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ different web hosting brand names all over the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple mathematics shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a gigantic stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably covered all web hosting market preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Shortcoming Number 1: A moronic domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extra careful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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 perplexed? We undeniably are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The same mail folder setup

The mail folder arrangement on the server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chaps firmly reinforce their belief in God when managing the email folders on the email server, praying not to screw things up too harshly.

Predicament Number 3: A total deficiency of domain name management options

Do we need to bring up the thorough absence of a modern domain name administration menu - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, alter domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois details, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a vast inconvenience. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Problem No.4: Many login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an additional login to access the invoice 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 billing transaction platform (particularly tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting distributor is availing of, the earnest users can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain management software; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: 120+ website hosting CP sections to get to know... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them promptly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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