For your info, it's useful to be aware that most of the cPanel Website Hosting offers on the present web hosting market are supplied by a quite insubstantial business segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) known as reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-size marketing niche, which furnishes an enormous amount of different web hosting brands, yet supplying exactly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offerings on the entire web hosting marketplace provide the very same solution: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Website Hosting prices are alike. Very much alike. Leaving for those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel option. So, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting brands in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

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

The Website Hosting "diversity" and the web hosting "offerings" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting brand names. Assume you are merely an ordinary person who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website development processes and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the separate domains and online portals. Are you ready to make your hosting decision? Is there any web hosting alternative you can choose? Sure there is, nowadays there are more than 200,000 web hosting service providers out there. Officially. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98% of these 200k+ different website hosting brand names around the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, dubbed differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the diversity on the current web hosting market is... Full stop.

The Website Hosting LOTTO we are all part of

Simple math shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is an enormous strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that something like that will happen! Less than 1 in 50...

The positive and negative sides of the cPanel Website Hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modern and presumably satisfied all hosting industry requirements. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the trick if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...

Negative Sign Number 1: A moronic domain folder structure

If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extremely cautious not to delete completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each new hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domain names are quite easy to erase on the web server, since they all are placed into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain name. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Check for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder configuration 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 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 name)
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 growing perplexed? We undeniably are!

Negative Point Number Two: The very same e-mail folder configuration

The mail folder arrangement on the web hosting server is literally the same as that of the domains... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin blokes firmly strengthen their belief in God when tackling the electronic mail folders on the mail server, praying not to botch things up too gravely.

Drawback Number Three: An entire deficiency of domain name administration user interfaces

Do we have to refer to the complete lack of a contemporary domain manipulation GUI - a place where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or administer domain names, edit domain names' Whois information, shield the Whois details, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's an enormous predicament. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Negative Sign No.4: Numerous login locations (minimum two, max three)

What about the need for another login to use the billing transaction, domain name and tech support administration software solution? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based Website Hosting provider. At times, depending on the billing transaction system (especially meant for cPanel solely) the cPanel Website Hosting distributor is using, the devoted users can wind up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration menu; 2: the trouble ticket support menu), winding up with an aggregate of 3 user login locations (including cPanel).

Negative Sign No.5: More than a hundred and twenty website hosting Control Panel areas to grasp... swiftly

cPanel offers for your consideration 120+ departments inside the CP. It's an excellent idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better become familiar with them fast... That's inordinately impudent on cPanel's side.

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

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