In the web hosting field, a control panel is a web-based instrument which enables you to command your web hosting account via a graphic interface using various tools. Since the alternative is to input commands in a command line, many people prefer to use a control panel to take care of their website content. There are many different control panel brands and the simplicity of administration through each one differs, but the vast majority of tools offer a basic set of services which you'll be able to manage through a point-and-click interface. These include working with files and folders, managing e-mail addresses and databases or browsing access and error logs. A few control panels will allow you to do many more things as well, so when you acquire a hosting solution, you should check the benefits and drawbacks of the software tool that you will use to control your new account.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS
Our virtual private server packages include 3 different control panels to select from during the signup process. Hepsia is in-house built and it will enable you to manage all your domains in one place together with domain name registrations, service renewals and support tickets. It's also the easiest one of the three to start using as it has an extremely user-friendly interface. With cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll have additional adaptability as you will be able to create an individual account on the server for every single domain that you host and you'll have full root-level access, but they are more difficult to use. They also have a reseller level which will allow you to start your own web hosting company. If you want extra power for your sites and you haven't had a VPS account before, Hepsia could be the better option to start with.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Hosting
In case you get one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you shall find three different control panels on the registration page. The first is our Hepsia Control Panel, which will help you to control the whole server as a single account, so you'll see all your domains, email addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in a single place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will enable you to set up multiple accounts and if you get the server with some of them, you'll also have full root access. Both of the control panels will also give you the opportunity to start your own web hosting company due to the fact that they have a reseller level which will allow you to create hosting plans and take care of a lot of server-side settings. Hepsia is the top choice if you want everything to be simple, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are excellent if you wish to have more control and when you have some experience in controlling your own server.
