For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offerings on the current web hosting marketplace are provided by a very unsubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to yearly money flow) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-scale business segment, which supplies a huge amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering one and the same thing: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the entire website hosting market furnish exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting prices are similar. Very much alike. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service almost no other hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is simply one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200,000 "Hosting firms", all cPanel-based, yet differently labeled

The Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offers" Google reveals to us come down to just one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are simply an ordinary guy who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the website hosting platforms, which in fact power the respective domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting alternative you can pick? Of course there is, now there are more than 200,000 website hosting service providers out there. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique website hosting brand names around the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how great the diversity on today's hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple math reveals that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is an immense strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in 50...

The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably covered most website hosting industry requirements. In short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side Number One: A moronic domain folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extra watchful not to erase fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain, which is the very famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. Determine for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder configuration 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)
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)

Are you growing confused? We unquestionably are!

Drawback Number 2: The very same email folder structure

The email folder configuration on the hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin guys strongly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too severely.

Weak Point No.3: An utter lack of domain management options

Do we have to refer to the absolute shortage of a modern domain manipulation platform - a place where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, edit domains' Whois details, secure the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not have such a "modern" menu at all. That's a great weakness. An unpardonable one, we would like to point out...

Disadvantage Number 4: Multiple login locations (minimum two, maximum three)

What about the demand for an additional login to use the invoice transaction, domain and technical support administration GUI? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based Hosting supplier. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing tool (especially meant for cPanel only) the cPanel Hosting firm is utilizing, the eager users can end up with 2 extra login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration software platform; 2: the ticket support system), winding up with a total of 3 login locations (counting cPanel).

Predicament No.5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting CP sections to get familiar with... swiftly

cPanel presents for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty menus inside the Control Panel. It's an excellent idea to get to know each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them briskly... That's way too impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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