What Does cPanel Website Hosting Mean?
For your info, it's useful to know that most of the cPanel-based website hosting offerings on the contemporary web hosting market are furnished by a very insubstantial business niche (as far as annual cash flow is concerned) named hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small marketing niche, which provides an immense number of different web hosting brands, yet offering exactly the same thing: chiefly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98% of the web hosting offers on the whole website hosting marketplace furnish one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based website hosting price tags are similar. Very identical. Giving those who require a top web hosting service practically no other web hosting platform/web hosting CP alternative. Thus, there is only a single fact: out of more than 200k web hosting trademarks worldwide, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of
Simple arithmetic demonstrates that to encounter a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a huge stroke of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will take place! Less than one in fifty...
The strengths and weaknesses of the cPanel website hosting solution
Let's not be cruel with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably covered all website hosting market preconditions. In brief, cPanel can do the job for you if you have just one single domain to host. But, if you have more domains...
Negative Sign Number 1: An idiotic domain folder system
If you have 2 or more domains, however, be very attentive not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain name). The files of the add-on domain names are very simple to erase on the web hosting server, since 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 situated 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. Examine for yourself how wonderful cPanel's domain folder setup 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 name)
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)
Are you growing confused? We categorically are!
Inconvenience No.2: The same email folder arrangement
The email folder arrangement on the hosting server is absolutely the same as that of the domains... Making the same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin blokes firmly fortify their faith in God when dealing with the electronic mail folders on the e-mail server, praying not to muck things up too seriously.
Disadvantage Number 3: An utter deficiency of domain administration GUIs
Do we have to point out the total lack of a modern domain management menu - a location where you can: register/move/renew/park or manage domain names, modify domains' Whois info, protect the Whois details, edit/set up name servers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not include such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a huge weakness. An inexcusable one, we wish to add...
Predicament Number Four: Multiple login places (minimum two, maximum three)
How about the need for an extra login to utilize the invoice transaction, domain name and technical support administration interface? 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 platform (principally developed for cPanel solely) the cPanel website hosting corporation is making use of, the avid users can end up with two additional login places (1: the invoice transaction/domain name administration platform; 2: the trouble ticket support software platform), ending up with an aggregate of three user login locations (including cPanel).
Weak Point No.5: More than 120 web hosting Control Panel areas to pick up... rapidly
cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 departments inside the web hosting Control Panel. It's a remarkable idea to become familiar with each one of them. And you'd better become acquainted with them swiftly... That's excessively impertinent on cPanel's side.
With all due recognition, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting vendors:
As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one too...
