For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offerings on today's website hosting market are supplied by a quite insubstantial business niche (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which furnishes a vast number of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing absolutely the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace offer the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/CP option. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200,000 "Website Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are merely an average guy who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page creation procedures and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting option you can settle on? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200k 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 in the world will give you exactly the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on the contemporary hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

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

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably fulfilled all web hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Aspect No.1: An imbecilic domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra watchful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to remove on the hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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)
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 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 nonplussed? We surely are!

Disadvantage No.2: The same email folder arrangement

The mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly increase their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the email server, praying not to muck things up too severely.

Negative Point Number Three: An utter deficiency of domain name manipulation options

Do we need to bring up the absolute lack of a contemporary domain name management interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a vast drawback. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Negative Sign Number 4: Many login locations (min 2, max 3)

How about the demand for an additional login to make use of the invoicing, domain name and technical support management platform? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Website Hosting company. Sometimes, based on the invoicing transaction tool (especially made for cPanel only) the cPanel Website Hosting supplier is using, the eager clients can wind up with two extra login places (1: the invoicing/domain administration user interface; 2: the ticket support interface), winding up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Aspect Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel departments to become familiar with... briskly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to pick up each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them quickly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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