In the web hosting field, a control panel is a web-based tool that enables you to manage your Internet hosting account via a graphic interface using various tools. Considering that the alternative is to enter commands inside a command line, most of the people prefer to use a control panel to manage their web content. There're many different control panel types and the simplicity of administration through each one is different, yet the vast majority of tools supply a basic set of services which you'll be able to manage via a point-and-click interface. For example working with files and folders, managing e-mail addresses and databases or viewing access and error logs. Several control panels will allow you to do a lot more things too, so when you buy a hosting package, you should check the pros and cons of the instrument that you will use to control your new account.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we sell come with three separate control panels to pick from and you'll be able to pick any of them throughout the registration process based on your needs and level of experience. Hepsia is the simplest to use one and it'll make it easier to use a VPS even if you have never had any hosting account before. It is a multi-functional tool through which you will be able to manage not only your web content, but also support tickets, renewal payments and domain registrations. With cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll have more control since you will receive server root access and you’ll be able to make an individual account for each site that you host, but these two control panels are more challenging to use compared to Hepsia and require some experience. As they have client and reseller levels, they will also give you the opportunity to start a reseller business and have customers of your own.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you will 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 manage the whole server as a single account, so you'll see all your domain names, emails, databases, invoices and support tickets in one place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will allow you to make multiple accounts and if you get the server with any of them, you'll also have full root access. Both of the control panels will also provide you with the ability to start your own hosting company since they have a reseller level which will allow you to create hosting plans and control multiple server-side settings. Hepsia is the right choice when you want everything to be easy, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are good if you would like to have more control and when you have some experience in managing your own server.
