For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel Website Hosting offers on the current web hosting market are supplied by a quite unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-scale marketing segment, which supplies an immense quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying absolutely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the whole website hosting market furnish the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200k "Website Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently dubbed

The Website Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to merely one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are only an average person who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web site making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and online portals. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting variant you can choose? Of course there is, today there are more than 200,000 web hosting firms out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different web hosting brands worldwide will offer you the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the current website hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

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

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably met all web hosting industry prerequisites. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Inconvenience Number 1: A stupid domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to remove on the hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how fantastic cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed)
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 name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 confused? We clearly are!

Negative Point Number Two: The same e-mail folder setup

The mail folder arrangement on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly reinforce their belief in God when handling the email folders on the email server, hoping not to botch things up too severely.

Disadvantage No.3: An utter shortage of domain administration menus

Do we need to mention the absolute deficiency of a contemporary domain administration platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois information, protect the Whois info, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not involve such a "modern" interface at all. That's a gigantic problem. An inexcusable one, we want to point out...

Weak Point No.4: Multiple login places (min 2, maximum three)

How about the necessity for an additional login to access the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support administration user interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based Website Hosting supplier. At times, on the basis of the billing system (particularly developed for cPanel only) the cPanel Website Hosting firm is utilizing, the enthusiastic users can wind up with 2 additional login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support software solution), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Disadvantage Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting CP areas to become acquainted with... briskly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's quite arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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