For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offers on the present website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insignificant marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing segment, which generates a vast amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering the very same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire website hosting market supply exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are similar. Quite similar. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/hosting CP option. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only a normal bloke who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page creation processes and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domain names and sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any web hosting alternative you can decide upon? Of course there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brand names worldwide will give you the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a mammoth stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will happen! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably covered all web hosting industry requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number One: A dumb domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to 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 easy to delete on the hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder system 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 becoming puzzled? We undeniably are!

Drawback Number Two: The same email folder configuration

The email folder configuration on the web server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly enhance their faith in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the email server, hoping not to botch things up too harshly.

Weakness No.3: A thorough shortage of domain management user interfaces

Do we need to mention the sheer deficiency of a contemporary domain management tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois information, secure the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a big inconvenience. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Disadvantage Number Four: Numerous user login locations (minimum two, max 3)

How about the necessity for an extra login to access the invoice transaction, domain and technical support administration system? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Hosting corporation. Sometimes, depending on the invoicing system (principally created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting supplier is using, the enthusiastic clients can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Weak Point No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP areas to learn... rapidly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting CP. It's a fine idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them promptly... That's way too insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Hosting companies:

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