A control panel is a web-based graphic interface that allows you to manage various features of your hosting service. A few examples of the things that you can do using this kind of a software instrument are file and email management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, and many others. As there're various control panel brands, the services that you will be able to control are also different and may also depend on the attributes that the internet hosting company provides. For instance, you may have a given option in one control panel and not in another, or it could take additional steps to perform some task. Such an instrument offers you the ability to use a point-and-click interface instead of entering commands with complex syntax within a command line. Despite the fact that some users prefer the aforementioned option, the majority of users like the easier level of administration that a control panel provides.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of the dedicated server plans that we sell, you'll find as many as three different control panels on the registration page. The first one is our Hepsia Control Panel, that will enable you to manage the server as a single account, so you'll find all your domain names, email addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in a single place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will allow you to create multiple accounts and in case you get the server with any of them, you'll also get full root access. Both of the control panels will also provide you with the chance to launch your own web hosting company because they have a reseller level that will allow you to create hosting plans and control a lot of server-side settings. Hepsia is the best choice when you want everything to be easy, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are suitable if you would like to have additional control and when you have some practical experience in taking care of your own server.
