For your information, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel Website Hosting offers on the present website hosting marketplace are furnished by a very insubstantial marketing segment (when it comes to annual money flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a kind of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes an enormous number of different web hosting trademarks, yet supplying strictly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Owing to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace offer one and the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are identical. Quite similar. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/website hosting CP alternative. So, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brand names worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "Website Hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet uniquely dubbed

The Website Hosting "variety" and the web hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Suppose you are simply a regular guy who's not very well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website making processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the individual domains and web sites. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any website hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these more than two hundred thousand unique web hosting brands worldwide will offer you exactly the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with exactly the same price tags! WOW! That's how large the variety on the present-day hosting market is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math reveals that to choose a non-cPanel based web hosting distributor is a colossal stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than one in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably fulfilled all web hosting industry requirements. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Negative Sign Number 1: An idiotic domain name folder setup

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be very attentive not to erase entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will call each next hosted domain, 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 situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Determine for yourself how fabulous cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you becoming perplexed? We positively are!

Predicament Number 2: The same e-mail folder configuration

The email folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin guys firmly strengthen their faith in God when dealing with the mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to screw things up too gravely.

Problem No.3: A sheer deficiency of domain management user interfaces

Do we have to refer to the total lack of a contemporary domain management menu - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or manage domains, change domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois information, change/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a vast weakness. An inexcusable one, we would like to point out...

Negative Aspect No.4: Multiple login places (min two, max 3)

How about the necessity for another login to utilize the invoicing, domain and technical support administration software platform? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Website Hosting company. Sometimes, based on the billing transaction system (principally developed for cPanel only) the cPanel Website Hosting supplier is utilizing, the ardent users can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the invoicing/domain management software solution; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel areas to pick up... rapidly

cPanel presents to your attention more than one hundred and twenty departments inside the website hosting Control Panel. It's a fantastic idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better memorize them fast... That's extremely impertinent on cPanel's side.

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

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