A control panel is a web-based graphic interface that makes it possible to manage various aspects of your web hosting service. A few examples of the things that you'll be able to do using such a software instrument are file and email management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etc. Since there are different control panel brands, the services that you will be able to control are also different and may also depend on the features that the hosting company offers. For example, you may have a particular option in one control panel and not in another, or it could take additional steps to perform some task. Such an instrument gives you the chance to use a point-and-click interface rather than inputting commands with complex syntax inside a command line. Although some users would prefer the latter option, the vast majority of users welcome the easier level of administration that a control panel can offer.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS
The virtual private server
packages that we sell come with as many as three different control panels to choose from and you'll be able to select any of them throughout the signup process based on your requirements and level of experience. Hepsia is the easiest to use one and it will allow you to use a VPS even when you have never had any web hosting account before. It is a multifunctional tool through which you'll be able to manage not only your web content, but also support tickets, renewal payments and domain name registrations. With cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll have more control because you will have server root access and you will be able to make an independent account for each site that you host, but these two control panels are more difficult to use when compared to Hepsia and require some experience. Because they have client and reseller levels, they'll also give you the opportunity to launch a reseller business and have customers of your own.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server
packages that we offer, you'll have 3 control panels available for your machine. The easiest one to use is named Hepsia and it's in-house built. It will allow you to perform a lot of things in one place, so even if you have little or no experience, you will not have any problems to handle your web content, domain names, payments and support tickets without the need to log into another system. Hepsia also has the most user-friendly interface. In contrast, the remaining two control panels - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more challenging to use, so you should have better technical skills in order to use them, but they will provide you with increased control over various server settings and will allow you to host every domain in an individual account. The latter option makes these two control panels suitable for creating a reseller business and selling internet hosting accounts to other individuals.
