In the web hosting world, a control panel is a web-based tool which will allow you to command your web hosting account through a graphic interface using various tools. Since the alternative is to enter commands in a command line, most people prefer to use a control panel to control their web page content. There are different control panel types and the ease of administration through each one differs, yet the vast majority of tools provide a basic set of services which you'll be able to manage via a point-and-click interface. These include working with files and folders, managing emails and databases or browsing access and error logs. Some control panels will enable you to do many more things as well, so when you acquire a web hosting package, you should check the benefits and drawbacks of the software tool that you will use to manage your new account.

Multiple Control Panels in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer feature three separate control panels to select from and you can select any of them during the signup process depending on your specific needs and level of experience. Hepsia is the easiest to use one and it'll allow you to use a VPS even when you have never had any web 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 registrations. With cPanel and DirectAdmin you'll have more control as you will have server root access and you’ll be able to create a different account for each Internet site that you host, but these two control panels are more difficult to use in comparison to Hepsia and require certain experience. As they have client and reseller levels, they'll also give you the opportunity to start a reseller business and have customers of your own.

Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you will have 3 control panels to make your choice from for your machine. The easiest one to use is called Hepsia and it is in-house built. It'll allow you to do a lot of things in one place, so even when you have minimum experience, you will not have any difficulties to control your website content, domain names, payments or support tickets with no need to log into a separate system. Hepsia also has the most user-friendly interface. In comparison, the remaining two control panels - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more complex to use, so you are required to have more technical skills so that you can use them, but they'll provide you with additional control over various server settings and will enable you to host every domain in an individual account. The latter option makes these two control panels suitable for creating a reseller business and selling hosting accounts to other people.
