A control panel is a web-based graphic interface that enables you to manage various features of your web hosting service. Examples of the things that you will be able to do by using this kind of a software tool are e-mail and file management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etc. Since there're different control panel brands, the services that you can manage are also different and may also depend on the attributes that the web hosting company provides. For instance, you may have a given option in one control panel and not in another, or it may take more steps to do a specific task. Such a tool provides you with the ability to use a point-and-click interface rather than inputting commands with complex syntax inside a command line. Though some users would rather have the latter option, the vast majority of users like the easier level of administration that a control panel provides.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS
Our virtual private server
packages offer you three different control panels to choose from during the signup process. Hepsia is in-house built and it will allow you to control all your domain names in one place together with domain registrations, plan renewals and support tickets. It is also the easiest one of the three to work with as it has an extremely user-friendly interface. With cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll have extra flexibility as you will be able to create an individual account on the server for each domain that you host and you will have full root-level access, but they're more difficult to use. They also have a reseller level which will help you to start your own hosting company. In case you need more power for your sites and you haven't had a VPS account before, Hepsia could be the better choice to start with.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Hosting
If you decide to order one of the dedicated server
plans that we offer, you'll have as many as 3 control panels available for your machine. The easiest one to use is named Hepsia and it is in-house built. It will allow you to do a lot of things in a single place, so even when you have little or no experience, you will not have any difficulties to handle your website content, domains, payments and / or support tickets with no need to log into a separate system. Hepsia also has the most user-friendly interface. In contrast, the other two control panels - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more complicated to use, so you need better technical skills so that you can use them, but they will give you more control over various server settings and will allow you to host every domain in a separate account. The aforementioned option makes these two control panels suitable for running a reseller business and selling hosting accounts to other users.
