In the web hosting field, a control panel is a web-based instrument which will enable you to manage your hosting account through a graphic interface using various tools. As the alternative is to type in commands in a command line, most people prefer to use a control panel to manage their website content. There're many control panel brands and the simplicity of administration through each of them is different, but the vast majority of software tools offer a basic set of services that you can manage employing a point-and-click interface. For instance working with files and folders, managing emails and databases or browsing access and error logs. Several control panels will allow you to do many more things as well, so when you purchase a hosting solution, you should check the pros and cons of the software tool which you will use to manage your new account.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we offer come with as many as three separate control panels to choose from and you can choose any of them throughout the process of registration depending on your specific needs and level of experience. Hepsia is the simplest to use one and it will allow you to use a VPS even if you have never had any web hosting account before. It is an all-in-one 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 will have additional control because you'll receive server root access and you’ll be able to create a separate account for each site that you host, but these two control panels are more difficult to use as compared with Hepsia and require some experience. Since they have client and reseller levels, they will also give you the opportunity to start a reseller business and have customers of your own.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you shall have three control panels available for your machine. The easiest one to work with is named Hepsia and it's in-house built. It'll allow you to perform everything in one place, so even if you have minimum experience, you will not have any difficulties to take care of your web content, domain names, payments and support tickets without the need to sign in to another system. Hepsia also has the most user-friendly interface. In contrast, the remaining two control panels - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more difficult to use, so you will need more technical skills to be able to use them, but they will provide you with 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 appropriate for starting a reseller business and selling internet hosting accounts to other people.
