For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offerings on the contemporary website hosting market are furnished by a very insignificant business segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small business segment, which supplies an enormous quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace offer exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/hosting CP choice. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "Web Hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The Web Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only an ordinary person who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page development procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and online portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting option you can select? Of course there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting firms in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brands around the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the present-day hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a mammoth stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based Web Hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably fulfilled most web hosting business demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Point Number One: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extra watchful not to remove fully 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 name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the web server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain 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 name)
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 name)

Are you becoming puzzled? We undoubtedly are!

Problem Number Two: The same e-mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly reinforce their belief in God when dealing with the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to mess things up too irretrievably.

Weakness Number 3: An utter lack of domain administration sections

Do we need to point out the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain name administration platform - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois information, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a considerable disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

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

What about the demand for an additional login to use the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support management software platform? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Web Hosting service provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoice transaction tool (principally tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel Web Hosting firm is using, the zealous clients can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoicing/domain management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support software), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (counting cPanel).

Problem Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel departments to grasp... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to learn each of them. And you'd better learn them fast... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one as well...
