For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel Web Hosting offers on today's web hosting market are generated by a quite insignificant business niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing segment, which generates a huge amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the entire website hosting market furnish one and the very same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. So, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mind that one...

200,000 "Web Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The Web Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are merely an ordinary fellow who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website development procedures and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and web sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can select? Sure there is, right now there are more than 200k web hosting suppliers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names all over the world will give you the very same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on today's web hosting market is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math shows that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a big strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than 1 in 50...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly answered all web hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Aspect Number One: A stupid domain name folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, however, be very watchful not to erase fully 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 quite simple to delete on the web server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known 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 delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Decide for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is situated)
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 name)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting confused? We undoubtedly are!

Problem Number Two: The same e-mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly enhance their belief in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to botch things up too irretrievably.

Negative Aspect Number 3: A thorough shortage of domain administration interfaces

Do we need to refer to the total deficiency of a modern domain name administration user interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, change domain names' Whois details, shield the Whois info, edit/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a gigantic drawback. An unpardonable one, we want to add...

Inconvenience Number 4: Multiple user login places (min two, maximum three)

How about the necessity for an additional login to make use of the billing transaction, domain and tech support management software platform? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Web Hosting vendor. At times, based on the billing system (particularly tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting company is utilizing, the earnest clients can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain administration software; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), winding up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Inconvenience Number 5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel sections to learn... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a terrific idea to get acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better pick them up swiftly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Web Hosting companies:

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