For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel-based Hosting offers on the present web hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite insignificant business segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small business segment, which furnishes an enormous amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying literally the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace furnish exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, mind that one...

200,000 "Hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are just an ordinary fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the website creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web portals. Are you ready to make your hosting selection? Is there any website hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, these days there are more than 200,000 web hosting suppliers out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brands all over the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's web hosting market is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a great strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

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

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably satisfied most web hosting market prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weakness No.1: An imbecilic domain folder setup

If you have two or more domains, though, be extremely watchful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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 domain names, please. Determine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder configuration is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
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)

Are you getting baffled? We definitely are!

Disadvantage Number 2: The very same mail folder setup

The mail folder arrangement on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to screw things up too irretrievably.

Negative Aspect No.3: A thorough shortage of domain name management tools

Do we need to cite the thorough absence of a contemporary domain name manipulation tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, edit domains' Whois information, protect the Whois info, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" user interface at all. That's an immense shortcoming. An inexcusable one, we wish to point out...

Predicament Number Four: Numerous login places (minimum 2, maximum three)

What about the demand for an extra login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain and technical support administration tool? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Hosting distributor. Now and then, on the basis of the billing transaction tool (principally meant for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting firm is using, the ardent clients can end up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with an aggregate of three login locations (including cPanel).

Problem No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel menus to get to know... quickly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to grasp each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them briskly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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