A control panel is a web-based graphic interface that makes it possible to manage different aspects of your Internet hosting service. Examples of what you can do through this kind of a software instrument are file and e-mail management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, and many others. Since you'll find many different control panel brands, the services that you can control are also different and may also depend on the features 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 do some task. Such a tool gives you the chance to use a point-and-click interface instead of typing commands with complex syntax in a command line. Despite the fact that some users would rather have the latter option, the vast majority of users enjoy the easier level of administration which a control panel can offer.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server solutions that we provide, you will have as many as 3 control panels to make your choice from for your machine. The easiest one to use is called Hepsia and it's in-house built. It'll allow you to perform everything in a single place, so even when you have minimum experience, you will not have any problems to take care of your web content, domain names, payments and / or support tickets with no need to log into another system. Hepsia also has the most user-friendly interface. In comparison, the other two control panels - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more challenging to use, so you are expected to have better technical skills in order to use them, but they'll give you additional control over various server settings and will enable you to host every domain in a separate account. The latter option makes these two control panels suitable for starting a reseller business and selling hosting accounts to other users.
