For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel Web Hosting offers on the present-day web hosting marketplace are provided by a quite inconsiderable business niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small marketing niche, which provides a great amount of different web hosting brands, 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 hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market provide one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

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

The Web Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely a regular bloke who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and online portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting option you can pick? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200k web hosting service providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel CP and platform, branded differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on the present web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly satisfied all web hosting industry requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign Number 1: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extra attentive not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the hosting 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 name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you getting perplexed? We undoubtedly are!

Drawback Number Two: The very same e-mail folder system

The e-mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin boys firmly fortify their faith in God when coping with the email folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to screw things up too gravely.

Shortcoming Number 3: An utter deficiency of domain name management sections

Do we have to bring up the absolute absence of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois info, protect the Whois details, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" menu at all. That's a huge predicament. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Numerous login places (min 2, maximum three)

How about the need for an extra login to avail of the billing transaction, domain and technical support management system? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Web Hosting distributor. Occasionally, depending on the invoicing platform (principally built for cPanel solely) the cPanel Web Hosting company is using, the eager customers can end up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain administration tool; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: More than 120 web hosting CP menus to get acquainted with... fast

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 sections inside the hosting CP. It's a terrific idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get to know them quickly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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