Description of cPanel Web Hosting
For your information, it's good to be aware that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offers on the present-day website hosting market are supplied by a quite insignificant business segment (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named reseller hosting. Reseller website hosting is a type of a small-sized marketing niche, which generates an immense quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet providing one and the same solutions: chiefly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least 98% of the website hosting offers on the whole hosting market furnish exactly the same thing: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Giving those in need of a top web hosting service almost no other website hosting platform/web hosting Control Panel choice. Thus, there is just a single fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting brands worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than two percent! Less than two percent, note that one...

Under hundreds of 1000's of different web hosting trademarked names.

WOW! That's how immense the assortment on today's website hosting marketplace is... Period.
The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a gigantic stroke of fortune. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will happen! Less than one in fifty...
The advantages and disadvantages of the cPanel-based website hosting solution
Let's not be fierce with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was fashionable and probably fulfilled all web hosting business requirements. To cut a long story short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain to host. But, if you have more domain names...
Problem No.1: An idiotic domain folder arrangement
If you have 2 or more domains, however, be extra careful not to delete entirely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each new hosted domain name, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to erase on the hosting server, because they all are set up into the root folder of the default domain, 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 remove the files of the add-on domain names, please. Observe for yourself how marvelous cPanel's domain folder arrangement is:public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
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 name)
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 becoming confused? We unquestionably are!
Problem Number 2: The same email folder system
The mail folder arrangement on the web server is exactly the same as that of the domains... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin boys firmly fortify their faith in God when handling the e-mail folders on the electronic mail server, hoping not to botch things up too severely.
Weak Point Number Three: A total absence of domain name management sections
Do we need to bring up the thorough shortage of a contemporary domain management menu - a location where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, change domain names' Whois info, shield the Whois info, change/set up name servers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not offer such a "modern" tool at all. That's a big drawback. An unforgivable one, we would like to point out...
Predicament Number 4: Multiple login places (min 2, maximum three)
How about the demand for an additional login to use the billing transaction, domain name and technical support administration section? That's beside the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel-based website hosting firm. At times, on the basis of the billing transaction tool (especially invented for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel website hosting provider is using, the enthusiastic users can end up with 2 extra login places (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration software; 2: the trouble ticket support GUI), ending up with a total of three login locations (counting cPanel).
Predicament No.5: 120+ hosting Control Panel sections to pick up... briskly
cPanel offers for your consideration more than one hundred and twenty sections inside the hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to become acquainted with each one of them. And you'd better grasp them rapidly... That's inordinately arrogant on cPanel's side.
With all due appreciation, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting distributors:
As far as we are informed, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one as well...
