For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel Website Hosting offers on today's hosting marketplace are provided by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing niche, which generates an immense number of different web hosting brand names, yet providing precisely the same thing: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offerings on the whole website hosting market supply strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting price tags are similar. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is only one single fact: out of more than 200k website hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2 percent, remark that one...

200,000 "Website Hosting companies", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely branded

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are simply a normal person who's not well aware of (as most of us) with the web page making processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web pages. Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can pick? Of course there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting vendors out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on the contemporary web hosting market is... Period.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple mathematics shows that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is a mammoth strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that something like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based Website Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly covered all website hosting business demands. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weakness Number 1: A dumb domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extra attentive not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check 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)
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)
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 becoming bewildered? We undeniably are!

Downside Number 2: The same e-mail folder system

The e-mail folder structure on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The admin guys firmly enhance their belief in God when tackling the mail folders on the mail server, hoping not to screw things up too badly.

Shortcoming Number 3: A total shortage of domain name management tools

Do we have to refer to the absolute lack of a modern domain name administration menu - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domain names, change domains' Whois info, secure the Whois details, modify/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not supply such a "modern" tool at all. That's a big disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Aspect No.4: Numerous user login places (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the demand for another login to avail of the invoicing, domain and tech support administration interface? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Website Hosting distributor. Occasionally, on the basis of the invoicing transaction platform (especially tailored for cPanel only) the cPanel Website Hosting firm is making use of, the eager users can end up with two additional login places (1: the billing/domain name management section; 2: the ticket support system), ending up with a total of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Weak Point No.5: More than one hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel sections to get familiar with... fast

cPanel offers to your attention more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting CP. It's an excellent idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better memorize them quickly... That's excessively arrogant on cPanel's side.

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

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