For your info, it's useful to know that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offers on today's website hosting market are furnished by a quite inconsiderable marketing segment (when it comes to annual money flow) called hosting reseller. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing segment, which supplies a huge number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying one and the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98 percent of the web hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace supply one and the very same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are alike. Very similar. Giving those who require a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. So, there is just one fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brands around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mind that one...

200,000 "Hosting suppliers", all cPanel-based, yet diversely branded

The Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Imagine you are merely an ordinary guy who's not very familiar with (as most of us) with the website making processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the different domains and web portals. Are you prepared to make your hosting pick? Is there any web hosting option you can choose? Of course there is, now there are more than 200k web hosting suppliers in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200,000+ unique website hosting brand names in the world will offer you literally the same cPanel web hosting Control Panel and platform, named in a different way, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how big the diversity on the present-day website hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting firm is a great strike of luck. There is a less than one in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and probably fulfilled most web hosting business demands. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain name to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Disadvantage Number 1: A laughable domain name folder system

If you have two or more domain names, however, be extra cautious not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to erase on the web hosting server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder situated inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain folder structure is: public_html (here my-default-domain.com is placed) 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 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 baffled? We undoubtedly are!

Disadvantage Number 2: The very same e-mail folder system

The mail folder configuration on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The admin chaps strongly strengthen their belief in God when dealing with the email folders on the email server, hoping not to screw things up too badly.

Weakness Number Three: An absolute deficiency of domain name management options

Do we have to refer to the absolute deficiency of a contemporary domain manipulation platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, modify domains' Whois information, secure the Whois details, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not provide such a "contemporary" user interface at all. That's a huge disadvantage. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...

Disadvantage Number Four: Numerous user login places (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the demand for another login to access the billing, domain name and technical support management platform? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Hosting service provider. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing system (especially devised for cPanel only) the cPanel Hosting company is utilizing, the zealous customers can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support interface), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Shortcoming No.5: More than 120 website hosting Control Panel sections to grasp... fast

cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting CP. It's a glorious idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better memorize them swiftly... That's quite insolent on cPanel's side. With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Hosting providers: As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mark that one too...
