For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offers on the current hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small marketing niche, which furnishes a vast number of different web hosting brands, yet offering exactly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the whole website hosting market provide the very same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are alike. Quite similar. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200,000 "Hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The Hosting "variety" and the hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are only an ordinary chap who's not very well acquainted with (as the majority of us) with the web site creation processes and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domain names and web pages. Are you ready to make your web hosting selection? Is there any website hosting alternative you can opt for? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200k web hosting companies out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique web hosting brands around the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the assortment on today's web hosting market is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals 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 a thing like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly covered all web hosting business demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign Number One: A moronic domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extremely cautious not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent 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 delete on the web hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how amazing 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 name)
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 name)
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 clearly are!

Negative Side Number 2: The same electronic mail folder arrangement

The mail folder structure on the server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chums strongly reinforce their belief in God when tackling the email folders on the mail server, hoping not to botch things up too severely.

Negative Side Number 3: A thorough shortage of domain name administration user interfaces

Do we need to cite the complete lack of a contemporary domain manipulation interface - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, change domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois details, edit/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a big predicament. An unforgivable one, we want to add...

Weak Side Number 4: Multiple login locations (min 2, max three)

What about the necessity for another login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support management interface? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Hosting corporation. At times, depending on the invoice transaction system (principally devised for cPanel only) the cPanel Hosting supplier is availing of, the eager customers can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain management menu; 2: the ticket support user interface), ending up with a total of 3 user login places (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP menus to become familiar with... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a glorious idea to pick up each one of them. And you'd better pick them up briskly... That's inordinately impertinent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Hosting firms:

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