For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based Hosting offerings on the present-day website hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to yearly money flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which supplies a vast quantity of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing strictly the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting market supply precisely the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently named

The Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an average bloke who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and online portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting option you can select? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200,000 hosting providers in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names all over the world will offer you the very same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the diversity on the current web hosting market is... Period.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps fulfilled most website hosting market requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage Number One: A ludicrous domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra watchful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous 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 fabulous cPanel's domain folder setup is:

public_html (here is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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 growing confused? We surely are!

Shortcoming Number 2: The same mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder configuration on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin guys strongly increase their faith in God when tackling the email folders on the email server, hoping not to mess things up too badly.

Weakness No.3: An utter lack of domain administration sections

Do we have to point out the complete shortage of a modern domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domains' Whois info, shield the Whois info, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a colossal inconvenience. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

Disadvantage Number 4: Numerous login locations (min 2, max three)

How about the demand for an additional login to make use of the invoicing, domain and technical support management tool? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Hosting corporation. Now and then, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (particularly tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel Hosting distributor is using, the devoted customers can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the billing transaction/domain administration software platform; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Shortcoming Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel menus to get acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 areas inside the CP. It's a great idea to get to know each of them. And you'd better become familiar with them briskly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Hosting companies:

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