For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offerings on the present-day website hosting marketplace are provided by a quite unsubstantial marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small business niche, which furnishes a vast number of different web hosting brands, yet supplying one and the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the whole hosting marketplace furnish exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "Web Hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The Web Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are just an ordinary fellow who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and web portals. Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting alternative you can pick? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200,000 website hosting corporations out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names worldwide will offer you precisely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on today's web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting corporation is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The strong and weak points of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied most web hosting industry preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number One: An imbecilic domain folder configuration

If you have two or more domains, however, be extra careful not to remove entirely 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). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the web server, because they all are located 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 name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Decide for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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 name)
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)

Are you growing bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Negative Point Number Two: The same mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is absolutely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly enhance their faith in God when coping with the e-mail folders on the email server, hoping not to muck things up too severely.

Inconvenience No.3: An entire lack of domain administration GUIs

Do we need to cite the sheer absence of a contemporary domain management GUI - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois details, secure the Whois details, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a gigantic disadvantage. An unjustifiable one, we wish to add...

Problem No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the necessity for an extra login to use the invoicing transaction, domain name and technical support management interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Web Hosting vendor. Occasionally, depending on the billing platform (particularly designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel Web Hosting supplier is availing of, the devoted clients can end up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration system; 2: the ticket support menu), winding up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel departments to learn... quickly

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

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

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