A control panel is a web-based graphic interface that allows you to manage various features of your Internet hosting service. A few examples of what you'll be able to do by using such a software tool are file and e-mail management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etcetera. As you'll find various control panel brands, the services that you will be able to manage are also different and may also depend on the characteristics that the web hosting company offers. For instance, you may have a given option in one control panel and not in another, or it may take additional steps to do a particular task. Such a tool provides you with the ability to use a point-and-click interface rather than inputting commands with complex syntax in a command line. Despite the fact that some users would prefer the latter option, the majority of users enjoy the easier level of administration which a control panel offers.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers
If you buy one of the dedicated server packages that we sell, you'll find as many as three separate control panels on the order page. The first one is our Hepsia Control Panel, which will allow you to manage the whole server as a single account, so you will see all your domain names, emails, databases, invoices and support tickets in one place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will permit you to generate multiple accounts and in case you get the server with any of them, you will also get full root access. Both of the control panels will also give you the chance to make your own hosting company because they have a reseller level which will allow you to create hosting packages and take care of multiple server-side settings. Hepsia is the right choice when you want everything to be simple, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are suitable if you would like to have more control and if you have some practical experience in managing your own server.
