For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel Website Hosting offers on the present-day website hosting market are provided by a very insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to yearly cash flow) called reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-scale business niche, which generates a big quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet offering the very same services: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting market offer one and the same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP choice. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting trademarks all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200k "Website Hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offers" Google shows to all of us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely an ordinary fellow who's not very familiar with (as the majority of us) with the web site development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the individual domain names and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting alternative you can decide upon? Of course there is, right now there are more than two hundred thousand hosting suppliers out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ different hosting brand names all over the world will give you literally the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, branded in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the present-day website hosting market is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to run into a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a huge strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative aspects of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be severe with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and possibly covered most website hosting business requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Point Number One: An idiotic domain folder system

If you have two or more domain names, however, be ultra cautious not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the web server, because they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how great cPanel's domain name folder system 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)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain)
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 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 getting perplexed? We surely are!

Negative Aspect Number Two: The very same email folder system

The e-mail folder configuration on the server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the same mistake twice?!? The admin blokes firmly enhance their belief in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to muck things up too severely.

Inconvenience No.3: An absolute lack of domain name administration GUIs

Do we need to mention the absolute absence of a contemporary domain name administration tool - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domains, change domains' Whois information, secure the Whois info, change/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not furnish such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a mammoth predicament. An inexcusable one, we would like to add...

Downside Number Four: Multiple user login places (min two, max 3)

What about the need for an additional login to avail of the invoicing transaction, domain and technical support administration interface? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based Website Hosting company. At times, based on the billing platform (principally designed for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Website Hosting corporation is using, the earnest users can wind up with two additional logins (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration interface; 2: the trouble ticket support platform), winding up with a total of three login locations (including cPanel).

Inconvenience No.5: More than one hundred and twenty hosting CP sections to become acquainted with... swiftly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 menus inside the CP. It's a remarkable idea to grasp each one of them. And you'd better get to know them fast... That's extremely arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting vendors:

As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one too...
