For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Website Hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-size business segment, which provides a great number of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering literally the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace offer strictly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "Website Hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply a normal chap who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web site creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and websites. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting alternative you can opt for? Of course there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand hosting corporations out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brands across the world will give you the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on today's website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an immense stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps covered most web hosting industry prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Point No.1: A moronic domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extra attentive 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 domain names are very easy to erase on the server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, 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 domain names, please. Determine for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 growing perplexed? We categorically are!

Disadvantage No.2: The very same email folder setup

The mail folder configuration on the server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin boys firmly fortify their belief in God when coping with the mail folders on the mail server, praying not to botch things up too severely.

Weakness Number 3: An utter deficiency of domain name administration interfaces

Do we need to mention the utter deficiency of a modern domain management interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domain names' Whois info, secure the Whois information, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's an immense drawback. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Weakness Number Four: Multiple login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for an extra login to make use of the invoicing, domain and tech support management menu? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Website Hosting supplier. At times, based on the invoicing transaction tool (particularly built for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting vendor is utilizing, the eager customers can end up with two additional login places (1: the billing/domain administration user interface; 2: the ticket support menu), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Downside Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel menus to get familiar with... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the web hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better get familiar with them rapidly... That's inordinately impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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