For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offerings on the current web hosting market are furnished by a quite insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which provides a big amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing precisely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace offer the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting price tags are alike. Very identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/CP option. So, there is merely one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "Website Hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are just an ordinary fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site creation procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and web portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any hosting variant you can pick? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 web hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different website hosting brands worldwide will give you literally the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the diversity on the present web hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a big strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and presumably answered most website hosting industry prerequisites. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign No.1: A dumb domain folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be very watchful not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call 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 simple to remove on the web hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Verify for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder setup 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)

Are you getting perplexed? We clearly are!

Predicament Number 2: The same electronic mail folder structure

The email folder arrangement on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums firmly enhance their belief in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too seriously.

Inconvenience No.3: A total absence of domain name management user interfaces

Do we need to bring up the complete shortage of a modern domain name manipulation tool - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domains' Whois information, protect the Whois information, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "modern" menu at all. That's a considerable predicament. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Downside Number 4: Multiple user login places (min two, maximum three)

How about the necessity for an extra login to make use of the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration software solution? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Website Hosting service provider. Sometimes, depending on the billing system (especially made for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting provider is using, the eager customers can wind up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing/domain management user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support section), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP departments to get acquainted with... promptly

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

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Website Hosting vendors:

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