For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offers on the current hosting market are generated by a very inconsiderable marketing niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small business segment, which furnishes a vast amount of different web hosting brand names, yet offering precisely the same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offerings on the entire website hosting market furnish the very same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Hosting prices are similar. Quite identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service practically no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than two percent, mind that one...

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

The Hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are just an average person who's not very well familiar with (as the majority of us) with the site creation procedures and the hosting platforms, which actually power the respective domains and web portals. Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any website hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200k website hosting providers in existence. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brands worldwide will offer you exactly the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, named differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how vast the assortment on the contemporary website hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple arithmetic shows that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting vendor is an enormous stroke of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in 50...

The pluses and minuses of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and perhaps covered all website hosting market preconditions. In short, cPanel can do the trick if you have only a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Inconvenience Number One: A laughable domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra watchful not to remove fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to erase on the server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain name folder arrangement is:

public_html (here is situated)
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 name)
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 perplexed? We clearly are!

Inconvenience Number 2: The very same electronic mail folder arrangement

The electronic mail folder arrangement on the server is strictly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes strongly strengthen their faith in God when coping with the email folders on the e-mail server, hoping not to bungle things up too badly.

Shortcoming Number Three: A thorough absence of domain management sections

Do we need to bring up the total shortage of a contemporary domain name management platform - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or manage domains, modify domains' Whois info, secure the Whois details, modify/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a considerable weakness. An inexcusable one, we want to add...

Weak Point No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

How about the demand for another login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain and technical support management user interface? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel Hosting provider. Occasionally, depending on the invoice transaction platform (especially devised for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting company is availing of, the avid customers can end up with two extra login places (1: the billing/domain management menu; 2: the trouble ticket support tool), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (counting cPanel).

Weakness No.5: 120+ website hosting Control Panel areas to pick up... quickly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting CP. It's a great idea to pick up each of them. And you'd better learn them fast... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

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

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