For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offerings on today's web hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insubstantial business niche (when it comes to yearly cash flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing segment, which generates a vast amount of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing one and the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace offer strictly the same service: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel Web Hosting price tags are identical. Very identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/hosting CP option. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "Web Hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The Web Hosting "diversity" and the website hosting "offers" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the very same solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just an ordinary chap who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the website creation procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can select? Of course there is, now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200k+ different web hosting brands worldwide will offer you the very same cPanel Control Panel and platform, labeled differently, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the contemporary web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math shows that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in 50 chance that a phenomenon like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

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

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and perhaps fulfilled most hosting industry prerequisites. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Drawback No.1: An imbecilic domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be extremely careful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new 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 hosting server, because they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous 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 delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder arrangement 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)
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 getting perplexed? We positively are!

Shortcoming No.2: The very same email folder configuration

The mail folder structure on the web server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the same error twice?!? The admin blokes firmly fortify their belief in God when tackling the mail folders on the mail server, praying not to bungle things up too severely.

Drawback No.3: A thorough shortage of domain management tools

Do we have to refer to the total shortage of a contemporary domain name management interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, alter domains' Whois details, secure the Whois information, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not contain such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a major weakness. An unpardonable one, we wish to point out...

Weak Side Number Four: Many user login locations (min 2, maximum 3)

How about the need for an extra login to utilize the billing, domain and technical support administration user interface? That's aside from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Web Hosting company. Occasionally, based on the invoicing transaction system (particularly designed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Web Hosting provider is availing of, the zealous clients can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoice transaction/domain name management software platform; 2: the ticket support software), ending up with a total of three user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number Five: 120+ website hosting CP sections to get to know... briskly

cPanel presents to your attention 120+ areas inside the web hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to get acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them swiftly... That's very impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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