For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offerings on today's hosting market are provided by a quite unsubstantial business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small business niche, which provides an immense quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering absolutely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting market offer absolutely the same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting price tags are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mark that one...

200,000 "Website Hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The Website Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply an average chap who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website development procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting alternative you can select? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200,000 web hosting firms in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names across the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the assortment on the present website hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a mammoth stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably met all web hosting market prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage No.1: A foolish domain folder system

If you have two or more domains, however, be very attentive not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to remove on the hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is placed)
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 name)
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 getting puzzled? We undeniably are!

Negative Point No.2: The same mail folder system

The mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys strongly increase their belief in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the email server, praying not to screw things up too badly.

Weak Point No.3: A total shortage of domain name manipulation options

Do we need to refer to the thorough deficiency of a modern domain management platform - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois info, change/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a gigantic problem. An unforgettable one, we wish to point out...

Negative Sign Number Four: Numerous user login locations (min 2, max three)

How about the need for an additional login to access the billing transaction, domain and technical support administration software? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Website Hosting distributor. At times, depending on the billing platform (principally designed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Website Hosting distributor is using, the zealous clients can wind up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain administration platform; 2: the ticket support tool), ending up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Downside No.5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting CP menus to memorize... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 menus inside the CP. It's an excellent idea to learn each of them. And you'd better get to know them swiftly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting distributors:

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