For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Website Hosting offers on the current website hosting market are generated by a quite insignificant marketing segment (as far as annual money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing segment, which furnishes an immense amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing literally the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the entire web hosting market furnish exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting prices are alike. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/hosting CP option. So, there is simply a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

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

The Website Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google reveals to us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an average fellow who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web page making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting option you can opt for? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting vendors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand different hosting brand names around the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the current web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a huge stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

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

Negative Aspect Number 1: A dumb domain folder system

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely careful not to remove entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very easy to remove on the hosting server, since they all are located 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 located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder system 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 name)

Are you getting baffled? We surely are!

Weakness No.2: The same e-mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly fortify their belief in God when coping with the mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to screw things up too severely.

Negative Side Number Three: An utter lack of domain administration sections

Do we have to bring up the thorough shortage of a modern domain administration platform - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domains' Whois information, secure the Whois information, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a gigantic weakness. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...

Negative Aspect Number 4: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the need for an additional login to access the invoicing transaction, domain and tech support administration system? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Website Hosting supplier. At times, depending on the invoicing transaction platform (especially conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Website Hosting service provider is making use of, the earnest clients can end up with two extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name management GUI; 2: the ticket support system), winding up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel sections to become acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to get acquainted with each of them. And you'd better memorize them swiftly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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