In the hosting field, a control panel is a web-based tool that allows you to control your hosting account via a graphic interface using various tools. Considering that the alternative is to input commands in a command line, most of the people prefer to use a control panel to take care of their web page content. There're many different control panel brands and the ease of administration through each one is different, but the vast majority of software tools supply a basic set of services that you will be able to manage via a point-and-click interface. For example working with files and folders, managing email addresses and databases or viewing access and error logs. Several control panels will enable you to do a lot more things as well, so when you acquire a web hosting solution, you should check the benefits and drawbacks of the tool which you will use to control your new account.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server
packages that we offer, you shall have as many as 3 control panels to make your choice from for your machine. The easiest one to use is named Hepsia and it's in-house built. It'll allow you to do a lot of things in one place, so even when you have little experience, you won't have any difficulties to manage your web content, domains, payments and / or support tickets with no need to log into another system. Hepsia also has the most user-friendly interface. In contrast, the other two control panels - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are harder to use, so you'll need more technical skills in order to use them, but they'll provide you with increased control over various server settings and will enable you to host every domain in a separate account. The aforementioned option makes these two control panels perfect for starting a reseller business and selling hosting accounts to other users.
