For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel Website Hosting offerings on the present web hosting market are furnished by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes a big number of different web hosting brand names, yet providing strictly the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace offer the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

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

The Website Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are only an ordinary chap who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web site development processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and websites. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any hosting option you can select? Of course there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 web hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brands in the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly met all web hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weak Point No.1: A ludicrous domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be ultra careful not to erase entirely 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 domain names are quite simple to delete on the hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite 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 attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. See 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 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 becoming bewildered? We clearly are!

Negative Aspect Number 2: The same e-mail folder arrangement

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps firmly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to muck things up too severely.

Disadvantage No.3: A complete deficiency of domain manipulation menus

Do we have to cite the total lack of a contemporary domain manipulation user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois details, protect the Whois details, change/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not have such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a considerable weakness. An unjustifiable one, we would like to point out...

Disadvantage Number Four: Many user login locations (min two, maximum three)

How about the demand for another login to make use of the billing, domain and technical support management tool? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Website Hosting distributor. At times, based on the invoicing transaction platform (particularly made for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting provider is availing of, the keen users can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), winding up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Drawback Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting CP sections to memorize... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to memorize each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them quickly... That's quite impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting companies:

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