For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offerings on the present-day website hosting market are generated by a quite insignificant marketing segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-sized business niche, which furnishes a vast amount of different web hosting brand names, yet offering literally the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace furnish strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP option. So, there is simply one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "Website Hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting brand names. Assume you are simply an ordinary chap who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and websites. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting option you can decide upon? Sure there is, today there are more than 200,000 hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique hosting brands across the world will give you exactly the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied all hosting market prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage No.1: A ludicrous domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, though, be very cautious 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 domain names are very easy to remove on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed 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. Discover for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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 name)
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 getting nonplussed? We undeniably are!

Weak Point No.2: The very same mail folder structure

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin guys firmly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to screw things up too harshly.

Weak Side Number Three: A total deficiency of domain name manipulation GUIs

Do we have to refer to the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain manipulation platform - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois details, shield the Whois information, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a major drawback. An inexcusable one, we would like to add...

Weak Point Number Four: Many login places (min 2, maximum three)

How about the need for an extra login to access the invoicing, domain name and tech support administration software solution? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Website Hosting supplier. Sometimes, depending on the billing transaction platform (especially invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Website Hosting corporation is making use of, the keen clients can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with a total of three user login places (including cPanel).

Negative Point No.5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP sections to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the CP. It's a wonderful idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them fast... That's extremely impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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