For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting market are provided by a very inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small marketing segment, which generates an immense amount of different web hosting brand names, yet supplying strictly the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offers on the whole web hosting market offer literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Hosting prices are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is simply one 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%, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "Hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely dubbed

The Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google shows to us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an ordinary bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page making processes and the hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domain names and websites. Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 website hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brand names in the world will give you the very same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the contemporary website hosting market is... Period.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a big strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably met most web hosting business requirements. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign No.1: A foolish domain name folder configuration

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to delete on the server, since 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 situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder setup 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 name)

Are you growing perplexed? We clearly are!

Weak Side Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The email folder structure on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly increase their belief in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to muck things up too badly.

Problem Number 3: A thorough lack of domain name manipulation tools

Do we have to cite the absolute lack of a contemporary domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois information, protect the Whois information, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a vast weakness. An unjustifiable one, we wish to point out...

Predicament Number 4: Multiple login locations (min 2, maximum three)

What about the need for another login to utilize the invoicing, domain and technical support administration tool? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Hosting supplier. Occasionally, based on the invoicing tool (especially conceived for cPanel solely) the cPanel Hosting company is making use of, the devoted clients can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Point Number 5: 120+ Control Panel departments to pick up... rapidly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fabulous idea to memorize each of them. And you'd better learn them briskly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Hosting vendors:

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