For your information, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offers on the present web hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insubstantial marketing niche (as far as annual capital flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which generates a big amount of different web hosting brand names, yet providing the very same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the whole web hosting marketplace offer one and the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting prices are alike. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200,000 hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

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

The Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely a normal guy who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web site creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and online portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting option you can pick? Sure there is, at present there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting service providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98% of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brand names all over the world will give you the very same cPanel hosting CP and platform, dubbed in a different way, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the present hosting market is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting company is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps satisfied most web hosting industry demands. In brief, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Problem Number One: A stupid domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely watchful not to remove fully 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 very easy to delete on the web server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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 domains, please. Examine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is placed)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting nonplussed? We positively are!

Drawback No.2: The very same mail folder system

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps firmly enhance their faith in God when handling the email folders on the mail server, praying not to bungle things up too severely.

Predicament Number Three: A total lack of domain administration user interfaces

Do we need to bring up the thorough shortage of a modern domain manipulation GUI - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domain names, edit domains' Whois details, protect the Whois details, alter/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not involve such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a mammoth disadvantage. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Negative Point Number 4: Numerous user login places (minimum two, max 3)

How about the need for another login to make use of the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support management software? That's apart from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Hosting firm. Now and then, depending on the invoice transaction platform (especially created for cPanel only) the cPanel Hosting company is availing of, the enthusiastic users can end up with two extra login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain management section; 2: the trouble ticket support system), ending up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Sign Number 5: 120+ web hosting CP departments to get familiar with... rapidly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than 120 sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them quickly... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Hosting suppliers:

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