A control panel is a web-based graphic interface that makes it possible to manage different aspects of your hosting service. Examples of what you can do using this type of a software instrument are file and email management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, and so on. Since you will find many different control panel brands, the services that you'll be able to control are also different and can also depend on the characteristics that the hosting company provides. For example, you may have a particular option in one control panel and not in another, or it could take more steps to perform a particular task. Such a tool provides you with the opportunity to use a point-and-click interface rather than typing commands with complex syntax in a command line. Although some users would rather have the aforementioned option, the vast majority of users welcome the easier level of administration which a control panel offers.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS Servers
The VPS server
packages that we offer come with three different control panels to choose from and you will be able to select any of them during the process of registration based on your requirements and level of experience. Hepsia is the easiest to use one and it will enable you to use a VPS even when you have never had any hosting account before. It is a multifunctional tool through which you'll be able to manage not only your web content, but also support tickets, renewal payments and domain name registrations. With cPanel and DirectAdmin you will have more control since you will receive server root access and you’ll be able to create a different account for each website that you host, but these two control panels are more difficult to use in comparison with Hepsia and require some experience. Because they have client and reseller levels, they will also give you the opportunity to launch a reseller business and have customers of your own.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire one of the dedicated server
plans that we sell, you shall find three separate control panels on the signup page. The first one is our Hepsia Control Panel, that will allow you to control the server as a single account, so you'll find all your domain names, email addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in one place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will allow you to create 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 that will allow you to create hosting packages and take care of a lot of server-side settings. Hepsia is the best choice if you want everything to be easy, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are good if you wish to have more control and if you have some experience in maintaining your own server.
