For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offers on today's website hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insignificant marketing segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small business niche, which furnishes a huge amount of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering exactly the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting market supply literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who require a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/CP alternative. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200k "Hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us come down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different hosting trademarked names. Assume you are merely an ordinary person who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web page making processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can decide upon? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different website hosting brand names across the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the variety on the present website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a big stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based 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 market preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming Number 1: A dumb domain folder system

If you have two or more domains, though, be extra cautious not to delete 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). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to erase on the server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very 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 try not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name 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)
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 growing disorientated? We undoubtedly are!

Downside Number Two: The same email folder structure

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes strongly enhance their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to bungle things up too severely.

Negative Sign Number Three: An entire lack of domain name management GUIs

Do we have to cite the utter shortage of a contemporary domain administration user interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domain names' Whois details, protect the Whois information, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" menu at all. That's a great weakness. An unpardonable one, we would like to add...

Drawback Number 4: Many user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the need for an additional login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support management interface? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Hosting supplier. At times, based on the invoicing transaction platform (especially devised for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting supplier is using, the zealous clients can wind up with 2 extra logins (1: the billing/domain administration section; 2: the trouble ticket support user interface), winding up with a total of 3 login places (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel areas to learn... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better pick them up rapidly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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