For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting market are supplied by a quite insignificant business niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small business niche, which furnishes an immense number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying literally the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the entire website hosting market provide one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/CP choice. So, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, note that one...

200k "Website Hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The Website Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are simply a normal chap who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the site creation processes and the hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domains and sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any website hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than 200,000 web hosting corporations 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 give you strictly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the diversity on today's web hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an enormous stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably fulfilled most hosting business preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weakness Number 1: A dumb domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be extra watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite simple to erase on the server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain 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. Check for yourself how great 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)
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 name)
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 baffled? We categorically are!

Weak Point No.2: The same email folder arrangement

The e-mail folder structure on the hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chums strongly enhance their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to mess things up too seriously.

Drawback No.3: A complete deficiency of domain manipulation options

Do we need to cite the absolute deficiency of a modern domain name manipulation interface - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois information, modify/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" user interface at all. That's a gigantic weakness. An unjustifiable one, we wish to point out...

Predicament Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum 2, maximum three)

How about the demand for an additional login to access the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support administration user interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Website Hosting company. At times, depending on the invoice transaction system (particularly intended for cPanel only) the cPanel Website Hosting supplier is availing of, the enthusiastic customers can end up with two extra login locations (1: the invoicing/domain management platform; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number Five: More than a hundred and twenty hosting Control Panel sections to get acquainted with... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to get familiar with each of them. And you'd better get to know them promptly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

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

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one too...
