In the Internet hosting field, a control panel is a web-based instrument that will make it possible for you to manage your Internet hosting account via a graphic interface using various tools. Considering that the alternative is to input commands in a command line, most people prefer to use a control panel to manage their website content. There are many different control panel types and the ease of administration through each of them is different, but the vast majority of tools offer a basic set of services which you will be able to control from a point-and-click interface. For instance working with files and folders, managing email addresses and databases or viewing access and error logs. Some control panels will allow you to do many more things as well, so when you get a hosting package, you should check the pros and cons of the software tool which you will use to control your new account.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS Hosting
In case you wish to use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you will find 3 separate control panels to choose from on the order page. Depending on the Operating System that you pick and what you need, you can have your VPS set up with Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. The first is the easiest one to use and you'll be able to manage each and every aspect of the service through it in one place, including payments, domain name registrations and trouble tickets. All the domains which you host on the hosting server will be administered in the same account. The other two control panels will allow you to generate an individual account for each domain name hosted on the server and you will have root-level access, but they are trickier to work with, so in case you lack previous experience with them, you could experience some troubles. DirectAdmin and cPanel are also perfect for starting your own web hosting company as they both feature client and reseller levels.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you get one of the dedicated server plans that we sell, you shall find as many as three different control panels on the registration page. The first is our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to manage the server as a single account, so you will find all your domain names, emails, 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 them, you'll also have full root access. Both of the control panels will also give you the chance to launch your own web 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 top choice if you want everything to be simple, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are good if you want to have more control and when you have some practical experience in maintaining your own server.
