For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offers on the contemporary website hosting market are supplied by a quite insubstantial business niche (as far as annual money flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller hosting is a type of a small-scale marketing niche, which provides an enormous quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing absolutely the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace supply literally the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are similar. Very similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is just one single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, remark that one...

Two hundred thousand "Web Hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet diversely branded

The Web Hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to just one and the same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only a regular chap who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the website creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the various domains and web pages. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can decide upon? Of course there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations in existence. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brands worldwide will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the assortment on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a great stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel Web Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and presumably satisfied most web hosting business prerequisites. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Shortcoming Number 1: A dumb domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely cautious not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite simple to erase on the server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Discover for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain name folder system 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 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 confused? We certainly are!

Downside Number 2: The same e-mail folder setup

The mail folder structure on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin boys strongly fortify their belief in God when dealing with the mail folders on the email server, praying not to screw things up too irretrievably.

Problem Number Three: An absolute lack of domain name administration sections

Do we have to cite the utter absence of a contemporary domain management tool - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, edit domains' Whois info, shield the Whois information, alter/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a major weakness. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Sign Number 4: Many user login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to use the invoice transaction, domain and technical support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Web Hosting distributor. Now and then, on the basis of the billing platform (particularly developed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting vendor is making use of, the enthusiastic clients can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoice transaction/domain management platform; 2: the ticket support GUI), winding up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Weak Side Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP sections to grasp... rapidly

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty areas inside the hosting CP. It's a fantastic idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better learn them briskly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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