In the Internet hosting field, a control panel is a web-based tool that allows you to manage your hosting account through a graphic interface using various tools. Since the alternative is to type in commands in a command line, most people prefer to use a control panel to take care of their web page content. There are different control panel types and the ease of administration through each one is different, still the vast majority of software tools provide a basic set of services which you will be able to manage using a point-and-click interface. Such as working with files and folders, managing e-mail addresses and databases or browsing access and error logs. A few control panels will enable you to do many more things too, so when you get a web hosting plan, you should check the advantages and disadvantages of the software instrument that you will use to control your new account.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server
plans that we offer, you will have 3 control panels to make your choice from for your machine. The easiest one to use is called Hepsia and it is in-house built. It'll allow you to do a lot of things in a single place, so even when you have little or no experience, you'll never have any problems to handle your website content, domain names, payments and / or support tickets without the need to sign in to another system. Hepsia also has the most user-friendly interface. In comparison, the other two control panels - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more challenging to use, so you are expected to have more technical skills to use them, but they'll give you additional control over various server settings and will allow you to host every domain in a separate account. The latter option makes these two control panels perfect for creating a reseller business and selling internet hosting accounts to other people.
