For your information, it's useful to be aware that the majority of the cPanel-based Hosting offers on today's web hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insubstantial marketing niche (when it comes to annual cash flow) named reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a kind of a small-sized business niche, which supplies an immense number of different web hosting brands, yet providing precisely the same services: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the hosting offerings on the entire website hosting marketplace provide the very same service: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel Hosting price tags are alike. Very much alike. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting CP option. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks around the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting variant you can pick? Sure there is, at present there are more than 200,000 website hosting firms in existence. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the assortment on the contemporary web hosting market is... Period.

The Hosting LOTTERY we are all participating in

Simple math reveals that to stumble upon a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a big strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel Hosting solution

Let's not be merciless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps answered all web hosting business preconditions. To cut a long story short, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign No.1: An imbecilic domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extremely attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to delete on the server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the very popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder located 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. Determine for yourself how amazing cPanel's domain name folder system 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)
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 becoming bewildered? We definitely are!

Predicament Number 2: The same e-mail folder structure

The e-mail folder arrangement on the hosting server is strictly the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin guys strongly enhance their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the mail server, praying not to mess things up too seriously.

Drawback Number Three: A thorough deficiency of domain name management sections

Do we need to bring up the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain name administration GUI - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, change domains' Whois information, shield the Whois details, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not provide such a "modern" GUI at all. That's a gigantic weakness. An inexcusable one, we would like to add...

Problem No.4: Numerous user login places (min two, maximum 3)

How about the need for an extra login to make use of the billing, domain name and technical support administration software platform? That's apart from the cPanel account login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Hosting firm. Now and then, based on the billing platform (particularly designed for cPanel solely) the cPanel Hosting provider is availing of, the enthusiastic customers can end up with two additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support system), ending up with a total of three user login locations (counting cPanel).

Negative Side Number 5: More than a hundred and twenty web hosting CP menus to get to know... fast

cPanel presents for your consideration more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a great idea to get familiar with each of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them swiftly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, 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? Mark that one as well...
