For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel Web Hosting offers on today's web hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to annual cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small marketing niche, which furnishes an enormous quantity of different web hosting brands, yet providing absolutely the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace provide precisely the same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Web Hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is just one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

200k "Web Hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely named

The Web Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to just one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names.

Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any hosting alternative you can select? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 website hosting companies in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names worldwide will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named in a different way, with absolutely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the present web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that something like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and possibly satisfied most website hosting industry preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Inconvenience Number 1: A foolish domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very attentive not to delete entirely 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 domain names are very simple to remove on the hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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)
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 baffled? We categorically are!

Shortcoming No.2: The same e-mail folder configuration

The e-mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same error twice?!? The admin chaps strongly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too harshly.

Weakness No.3: An utter deficiency of domain name administration options

Do we need to bring up the entire shortage of a contemporary domain name management interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois info, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a big predicament. An unjustifiable one, we want to point out...

Shortcoming No.4: Many login places (min two, maximum three)

How about the demand for an additional login to make use of the invoicing, domain name and technical support management platform? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Web Hosting provider. Sometimes, depending on the billing platform (particularly tailored for cPanel solely) the cPanel Web Hosting corporation is availing of, the eager clients can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain name management interface; 2: the trouble ticket support software), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Shortcoming Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel sections to become familiar with... briskly

cPanel offers to your attention 120+ sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a wonderful idea to grasp each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them swiftly... That's inordinately impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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