For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offerings on today's web hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insignificant marketing segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-size business niche, which supplies a vast amount of different web hosting brands, yet furnishing strictly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace furnish one and the very same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/Control Panel choice. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "Website Hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are only an average bloke who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the website creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and websites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting option you can settle on? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than 200k hosting distributors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names in the world will give you strictly the same cPanel hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on the current hosting market is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a great strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

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

Negative Side No.1: An idiotic domain folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be ultra watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to delete on the server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous 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 remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 name)
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!

Negative Sign Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder structure on the web hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes strongly strengthen their faith in God when tackling the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to screw things up too severely.

Disadvantage Number Three: A total lack of domain management menus

Do we have to point out the total absence of a modern domain management GUI - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois info, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a considerable drawback. An unjustifiable one, we wish to add...

Weak Side No.4: Many user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

What about the need for another login to use the invoicing transaction, domain name and tech support management menu? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based Website Hosting firm. Now and then, based on the invoicing system (especially devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting firm is making use of, the ardent customers can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), ending up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

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

cPanel presents for your consideration 120+ areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a superb idea to get to know each of them. And you'd better memorize them fast... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting providers:

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