For your information, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offers on the present-day website hosting market are supplied by a quite inconsiderable marketing niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale business segment, which provides an enormous number of different web hosting brands, yet providing one and the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace offer one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP option. Thus, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "Hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The Hosting "variety" and the hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply an ordinary bloke who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the various domains and online portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting option you can settle on? Sure there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting providers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brands all over the world will give you the very same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably answered all web hosting industry preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback Number 1: A laughable domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely careful not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to erase on the web server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

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

Are you becoming bewildered? We certainly are!

Negative Aspect Number 2: The same email folder system

The electronic mail folder structure on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly strengthen their faith in God when tackling the email folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too severely.

Disadvantage No.3: An absolute absence of domain name administration tools

Do we have to mention the total shortage of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois information, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a big problem. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Numerous login places (minimum two, max 3)

What about the need for another login to use the invoicing, domain and technical support management system? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Hosting company. At times, on the basis of the invoicing system (especially created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting company is using, the earnest clients can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain name management interface; 2: the ticket support GUI), winding up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Weak Point No.5: More than a hundred and twenty Control Panel areas to memorize... promptly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to become familiar with each and every one of them. And you'd better get familiar with them fast... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, 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...
