For your info, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offers on the present-day website hosting marketplace are supplied by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which provides a great quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet providing precisely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace furnish literally the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting price tags are alike. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP option. Thus, there is only one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "Website Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The Website Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are simply a normal guy who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and websites. Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, at present there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting distributors in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different web hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the present web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math demonstrates that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and presumably fulfilled most web hosting market demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weakness Number 1: A moronic domain name folder system

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra attentive not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very popular 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 erase the files of the add-on domains, please. See for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder system 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)
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)
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 becoming puzzled? We clearly are!

Negative Sign No.2: The very same email folder structure

The email folder structure on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly reinforce their faith in God when dealing with the e-mail folders on the email server, hoping not to mess things up too badly.

Shortcoming No.3: A complete absence of domain manipulation user interfaces

Do we need to cite the entire shortage of a modern domain name manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domains' Whois details, secure the Whois info, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a vast problem. An unforgivable one, we want to add...

Disadvantage Number Four: Numerous login locations (min 2, maximum 3)

How about the demand for an extra login to make use of the billing transaction, domain and tech support administration GUI? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Website Hosting supplier. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction system (particularly meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting vendor is availing of, the avid customers can wind up with two additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain management software; 2: the trouble ticket support section), winding up with an aggregate of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel sections to become familiar with... promptly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting CP. It's a terrific idea to learn each of them. And you'd better get to know them briskly... That's excessively insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting distributors:

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