For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insignificant business segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which provides an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing precisely the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting market furnish one and the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting price tags are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting CP option. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "Web Hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The Web Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are simply a normal person who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and web pages. Are you prepared to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting option you can select? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200,000 web hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique website hosting brands all over the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the present-day web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and perhaps fulfilled all website hosting business demands. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side No.1: An idiotic domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extremely cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to remove on the server, because they all are created into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 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 confused? We positively are!

Negative Aspect Number 2: The same mail folder setup

The email folder arrangement on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin blokes strongly enhance their belief in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to mess things up too irreparably.

Shortcoming Number Three: An entire absence of domain management tools

Do we need to point out the thorough absence of a modern domain management interface - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, modify domains' Whois information, shield the Whois details, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a vast drawback. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Numerous user login locations (minimum two, max three)

How about the necessity for an additional login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support management system? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based Web Hosting provider. At times, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (particularly invented for cPanel solely) the cPanel Web Hosting firm is making use of, the enthusiastic users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing/domain name administration user interface; 2: the ticket support menu), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

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

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ menus inside the website hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better pick them up promptly... That's very impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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