For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel Hosting offerings on the present-day web hosting market are generated by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-scale business niche, which generates an immense quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet providing absolutely the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the website hosting offerings on the whole hosting marketplace provide absolutely the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel Hosting prices are identical. Very much alike. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP choice. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

Two hundred thousand "Hosting service providers", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are only a regular fellow who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web site development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the different domains and web portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting option you can select? Of course there is, as of now there are more than 200k website hosting providers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brands around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how big the variety on today's web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and possibly covered all web hosting industry prerequisites. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Inconvenience Number 1: An idiotic domain folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely watchful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the web server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domains, please. Observe for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain folder system is:

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

Are you getting disorientated? We clearly are!

Weak Point Number 2: The very same email folder system

The e-mail folder structure on the server is precisely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes strongly fortify their belief in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too badly.

Inconvenience Number 3: An entire absence of domain name manipulation menus

Do we need to cite the absolute deficiency of a contemporary domain management GUI - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domain names, change domains' Whois information, secure the Whois details, alter/create name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not include such a "modern" tool at all. That's a mammoth downside. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Weakness Number Four: Multiple user login places (minimum two, maximum 3)

What about the need for an extra login to make use of the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support management software solution? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Hosting corporation. At times, depending on the billing transaction system (principally tailored for cPanel only) the cPanel Hosting vendor is availing of, the enthusiastic clients can end up with two additional login locations (1: the billing/domain name management software platform; 2: the ticket support interface), winding up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty hosting Control Panel areas to learn... fast

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty sections inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a fine idea to get to know each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them briskly... That's inordinately insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, 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...
