For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-scale business segment, which supplies an immense number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying precisely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace provide literally the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP option. So, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, remark that one...

200,000 "Web Hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The Web Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting brand names. Assume you are just an average person who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website making processes and the hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Sure there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting vendors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brand names around the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the present web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly met most website hosting business requirements. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness No.1: A dumb domain name folder configuration

If you have two 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 quite easy to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are created 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 try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you getting disorientated? We definitely are!

Disadvantage No.2: The same mail folder system

The mail folder configuration on the hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly enhance their belief in God when tackling the mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too harshly.

Weak Side Number Three: A sheer lack of domain name management sections

Do we have to refer to the entire lack of a modern domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois info, shield the Whois details, modify/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a huge drawback. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Negative Side No.4: Many login places (min 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an additional login to use the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration system? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Web Hosting firm. Now and then, based on the invoice transaction tool (principally intended for cPanel only) the cPanel Web Hosting provider is availing of, the eager clients can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing/domain administration menu; 2: the ticket support GUI), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel menus to learn... quickly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them quickly... That's quite arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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