For your info, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offerings on today's web hosting market are furnished by a very insubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small business niche, which generates a vast quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying precisely the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the whole website hosting marketplace offer precisely the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Leaving for those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, remark that one...

200,000 "Hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly dubbed

The Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are just an ordinary guy who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the website making processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and websites. Are you ready to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting alternative you can choose? Of course there is, at present there are more than 200,000 web hosting firms in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ different web hosting brands all over the world will offer you the very same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, labeled differently, with literally the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on today's hosting market is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a colossal strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The upsides and downsides of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably fulfilled most web hosting market preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Downside Number 1: An idiotic domain folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extremely cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to erase on the hosting server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how excellent cPanel's domain name folder setup 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 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 name)

Are you growing bewildered? We undoubtedly are!

Shortcoming No.2: The same electronic mail folder setup

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin boys strongly reinforce their faith in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to bungle things up too irreparably.

Downside Number Three: An utter deficiency of domain management sections

Do we have to mention the entire lack of a modern domain management platform - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, alter domains' Whois info, shield the Whois info, change/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a major problem. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Predicament Number Four: Many user login locations (minimum two, max 3)

What about the demand for an extra login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain and tech support administration menu? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Hosting supplier. At times, depending on the billing transaction system (especially devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel Hosting vendor is using, the enthusiastic clients can wind up with two extra login locations (1: the billing/domain name management software solution; 2: the ticket support software), winding up with an aggregate of three login locations (counting cPanel).

Problem Number 5: 120+ hosting Control Panel areas to become acquainted with... fast

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a wonderful idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them briskly... That's quite impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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