For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel Website Hosting offerings on the contemporary website hosting marketplace are supplied by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) called reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing segment, which provides a big quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying absolutely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market supply one and the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is simply one single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, mind that one...

Two hundred thousand "Website Hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Assume you are just a normal bloke who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the web site development processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web pages. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting service providers out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique web hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the present web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics shows that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a huge stroke of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably met all website hosting industry preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point No.1: A dumb domain name folder arrangement

If you have two or more domain names, though, be ultra attentive not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder configuration is:

public_html (here is placed)
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 name)
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 puzzled? We certainly are!

Weakness Number 2: The same mail folder structure

The email folder arrangement on the server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the same error twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly increase their belief in God when handling the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to mess things up too severely.

Predicament No.3: A complete absence of domain manipulation options

Do we need to cite the complete lack of a contemporary domain name management user interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois information, secure the Whois details, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "modern" menu at all. That's a mammoth downside. An unjustifiable one, we wish to point out...

Disadvantage No.4: Numerous user login places (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to avail of the invoicing, domain name and technical support management software platform? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Website Hosting distributor. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing transaction system (particularly made for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Website Hosting vendor is using, the avid users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the billing transaction/domain management GUI; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Predicament No.5: More than 120 web hosting CP sections to get to know... promptly

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to get familiar with each one of them. And you'd better grasp them fast... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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