For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Web Hosting offers on the present-day web hosting market are generated by a quite insubstantial business segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) dubbed hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which supplies a great number of different web hosting brand names, yet providing one and the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting market provide one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Web Hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/hosting CP option. Thus, there is merely one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200,000 "Web Hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The Web Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google shows to us come down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website 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 development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting alternative you can decide upon? Of course there is, these days there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting companies out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brands all over the world will offer you literally the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the current website hosting market is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The strong and weak sides of the cPanel-based Web Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly met most website hosting industry requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number One: A foolish domain name folder structure

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely cautious not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to delete on the web server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous 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. See for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is placed)
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)
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 name)

Are you becoming confused? We absolutely are!

Downside Number Two: The same electronic mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder configuration on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly fortify their belief in God when managing the mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too irreparably.

Predicament No.3: An entire deficiency of domain management menus

Do we have to point out the absolute lack of a contemporary domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois information, secure the Whois info, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a considerable disadvantage. An unpardonable one, we wish to add...

Shortcoming Number Four: Numerous login places (min two, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to access the billing transaction, domain name and technical support management GUI? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Web Hosting firm. Sometimes, based on the invoicing transaction tool (particularly created for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting vendor is availing of, the avid users can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration section; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Weakness Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty Control Panel sections to get familiar with... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them rapidly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side.

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

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one as well...
