For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel Web Hosting offers on the contemporary web hosting marketplace are generated by a very unsubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to annual capital flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-size business segment, which provides a big number of different web hosting brand names, yet offering literally the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace offer absolutely the same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200k "Web Hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely labeled

The Web Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to merely one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely an ordinary chap who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the web page creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting choice? Is there any website hosting alternative you can opt for? Of course there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, branded differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Web Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple mathematics reveals that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting company is a colossal stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based Web Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably met all web hosting market demands. To put it briefly, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Downside Number One: A dumb domain folder system

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extra careful not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the hosting server, since they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name 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 domain names, please. See for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
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 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 confused? We surely are!

Predicament Number 2: The very same mail folder setup

The email folder arrangement on the web hosting server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The admin guys firmly strengthen their belief in God when coping with the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too harshly.

Predicament Number Three: A total absence of domain name administration options

Do we have to mention the complete absence of a modern domain name administration GUI - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, change domains' Whois info, shield the Whois info, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" section at all. That's a mammoth shortcoming. An unforgivable one, we want to add...

Predicament Number Four: Multiple login locations (minimum two, maximum 3)

How about the need for an extra login to avail of the invoice transaction, domain name and tech support administration system? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Web Hosting distributor. Now and then, based on the invoicing transaction platform (principally conceived for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting provider is utilizing, the earnest customers can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Predicament Number 5: More than 120 web hosting CP menus to pick up... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 menus inside the website hosting CP. It's a wonderful idea to grasp each of them. And you'd better memorize them rapidly... That's inordinately impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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