For your information, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel-based Web Hosting offers on the present-day website hosting marketplace are supplied by a quite insubstantial marketing segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small business niche, which provides an immense number of different web hosting brands, yet supplying absolutely the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Owing to the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the entire website hosting market provide one and the very same service: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel-based Web Hosting prices are alike. Very similar. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200,000 website hosting brand names all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, mark that one...

200k "Web Hosting distributors", all cPanel-based, yet diversely branded

The Web Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to just one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of thousands of different website hosting brand names. Suppose you are merely an average fellow who's not very well acquainted with (as most of us) with the web page making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and online portals. Are you prepared to make your web hosting selection? Is there any web hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, these days there are more than 200k website hosting vendors in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ unique web hosting brand names around the world will offer you strictly the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how immense the variety on the current hosting market is... Full stop.

The Web Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple math shows that to pick a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel-based Web Hosting solution

Let's not be pitiless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably answered most hosting industry requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the trick if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Weakness Number One: A dumb domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extra watchful not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to delete on the web server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite 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 try not to remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Check for yourself how marvelous 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)
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 disorientated? We definitely are!

Weak Side Number Two: The very same mail folder system

The mail folder configuration on the web hosting server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same error twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly reinforce their belief in God when coping with the email folders on the email server, praying not to muck things up too fatally.

Negative Point Number Three: A thorough shortage of domain administration tools

Do we need to cite the entire lack of a contemporary domain name manipulation menu - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois info, edit/create name servers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" menu at all. That's a gigantic downside. An unforgettable one, we wish to add...

Negative Point No.4: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

What about the necessity for another login to utilize the invoicing, domain name and technical support administration tool? That's beside the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel-based Web Hosting supplier. Sometimes, on the basis of the billing transaction tool (particularly devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel Web Hosting company is making use of, the eager users can end up with two additional login locations (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), winding up with an aggregate of three login places (including cPanel).

Negative Side Number 5: More than one hundred and twenty web hosting Control Panel sections to become acquainted with... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than a hundred and twenty areas inside the Control Panel. It's a great idea to memorize each and every one of them. And you'd better learn them promptly... That's very arrogant on cPanel's side.

With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Web Hosting suppliers:

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