For your information, it's good to know that most of the cPanel-based Website Hosting offers on the present site hosting marketplace are supplied by a very inconsiderable marketing segment (as far as yearly cash flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-sized marketing segment, which generates an immense amount of different web hosting brands, yet offering strictly the same solutions: mostly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the site hosting offers on the entire hosting marketplace furnish exactly the same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel Website Hosting prices are identical. Very similar. Giving those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is merely a single fact: out of more than two hundred thousand web hosting brand names in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than 2%, note that one...

Two hundred thousand "Website Hosting providers", all cPanel-based, yet differently branded

The Website Hosting "variety" and the site hosting "offers" Google reveals to all of us boil down to merely one thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different web hosting trademarked names. Imagine you are just an average guy who's not very well familiar with (as most of us) with the website making procedures and the site hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and sites . Are you prepared to make your web hosting pick? Is there any website hosting alternative you can settle on? Of course there is, these days there are more than two hundred thousand web site hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brands around the world will offer you precisely the same cPanel website hosting CP and platform, dubbed differently, with the very same price tags! WOW! That's how big the assortment on today's website hosting market is... Period.

Website HostingThe Website Hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics reveals that to come across a non-cPanel based cloud hosting corporation is an immense stroke of fortune. There is a less than one in fifty chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in fifty...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly met most hosting business preconditions. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have just a single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Disadvantage Number 1: A stupid domain folder structure

If you have two or more domain names, though, be extra watchful not to delete entirely 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 domain names are very simple to remove on the web hosting server, since they all are created into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to erase the files of the add-on domain names, please. See for yourself how great cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:

Hosting Directory Structure 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 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)
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 growing confused? We definitely are!

Weak Point Number 2: The very same e-mail folder configuration

The email folder structure on the server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the very same mistake twice?!? The admin guys firmly increase their belief in God when handling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to mess things up too badly.

Weak Point Number 3: An entire shortage of domain administration options

Do we need to cite the total shortage of a contemporary domain name management menu - a place where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domains, alter domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois info, edit/set up nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" section at all. That's a considerable problem. An unjustifiable one, we want to add...

Negative Sign No.4: Many user login places (minimum 2, max three)

What about the demand for another login to make use of the invoice transaction, domain and tech support management interface? That's apart from the cPanel login credentials you've been already given by the cPanel Website Hosting company. Now and then, depending on the billing platform (particularly intended for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting corporation is availing of, the earnest users can end up with 2 additional login locations (1: the billing transaction/domain name administration software solution; 2: the ticket support interface), winding up with a total of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Disadvantage Number Five: More than one hundred and twenty site hosting CP menus to pick up... rapidly

cPanel offers for your consideration more than 120 areas inside the webspace hosting CP. It's a fine idea to become acquainted with each and every one of them. And you'd better get to know them swiftly... That's extremely insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel Website Hosting suppliers:

As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
