For your information, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting marketplace are furnished by a quite unsubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) known as hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which furnishes a great number of different web hosting trademarks, yet furnishing absolutely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace provide the very same thing: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting price tags are similar. Quite identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. So, there is just one 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%, mind that one...

200k "Hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Assume you are only a normal chap who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the web page making processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domain names and web pages. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting option you can select? Of course there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brands around the world will give you the same cPanel CP and platform, labeled in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how large the assortment on today's web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a mammoth stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

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

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

Weak Point Number One: A dumb domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra careful not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how good 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 name)
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 name)

Are you getting nonplussed? We undoubtedly are!

Weakness Number Two: The very same electronic mail folder configuration

The electronic mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes strongly increase their faith in God when managing the email folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to mess things up too fatally.

Drawback No.3: A thorough shortage of domain administration user interfaces

Do we have to refer to the thorough lack of a modern domain manipulation user interface - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois information, shield the Whois details, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a gigantic problem. An unforgivable one, we want to point out...

Problem No.4: Many user login locations (minimum two, max three)

How about the demand for an additional login to access the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support management system? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Hosting company. Occasionally, on the basis of the billing platform (especially designed for cPanel only) the cPanel Hosting provider is availing of, the keen users can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support GUI), winding up with a total of three user login places (counting cPanel).

Weak Point Number Five: 120+ website hosting Control Panel departments to get to know... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them fast... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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