For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel Web Hosting offerings on the present web hosting marketplace are provided by a quite unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual money flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small business niche, which furnishes a huge number of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing one and the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market provide literally the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel choice. So, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200,000 "Web Hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The Web Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are merely an ordinary chap who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the website creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any hosting alternative you can opt for? Of course there is, right now there are more than 200,000 website hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brands all over the world will offer you the same cPanel hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the diversity on the present-day hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and probably satisfied most web hosting market requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Side No.1: A ludicrous domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extra watchful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to erase on the hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous 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 domains, please. Verify for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder arrangement 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 growing confused? We certainly are!

Downside No.2: The very same email folder system

The mail folder structure on the server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly strengthen their faith in God when managing the email folders on the email server, praying not to mess things up too irreparably.

Negative Point Number Three: A sheer lack of domain name administration options

Do we have to bring up the total shortage of a contemporary domain name manipulation GUI - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, change domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois information, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" section at all. That's a mammoth problem. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Downside No.4: Many login places (min two, max three)

What about the necessity for another login to avail of the billing, domain and tech support management interface? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Web Hosting distributor. Occasionally, on the basis of the billing system (principally developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel Web Hosting company is making use of, the keen clients can end up with two additional logins (1: the billing/domain administration GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), ending up with an aggregate of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Weak Point Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP sections to learn... swiftly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 departments inside the web hosting CP. It's a wonderful idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them promptly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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