A control panel is a web-based graphic interface which makes it possible to manage different aspects of your hosting service. Some examples of what you'll be able to do using this type of a software tool are file and e-mail management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etcetera. As you'll find many different control panel brands, the services that you can control are also different and can also depend on the characteristics that the internet hosting company offers. For instance, you may have a certain option in one control panel and not in another, or it could take additional steps to perform some task. Such a tool provides you with the opportunity to use a point-and-click interface instead of typing commands with complex syntax inside a command line. Though some users prefer the aforementioned option, the vast majority of users like the easier level of administration which a control panel offers.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you buy one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you'll find as many as three separate control panels on the order page. The first one is our Hepsia Control Panel, that will enable you to control the entire server as a single account, so you will find all your domains, email addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in one place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will enable you to generate multiple accounts and if you get the server with any of them, you'll also be provided with full root access. Both of the control panels will also give you the opportunity to make your own hosting company since they have a reseller level which will enable you to create hosting packages and control multiple server-side settings. Hepsia is the best choice if you want everything to be simple, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are suitable if you would like to have additional control and when you have some practical experience in maintaining your own server.
