A hosting control panel is a group of instruments which you can access via an Internet browser to control your online content. Since you'll have a graphic point-and-click interface, you can use these tools to perform various tasks easier than if you need to type complex commands in a command line. All control panels allow you to do some basic things such as managing your files, emails and databases or viewing statistics and logs, yet some of them are easier to use than others and offer more features which could save you time and efforts. That's why, the control panel that you'll receive with a new web hosting account can really make a difference, so you should check it and see whether it'll provide what you need before you subscribe for the service.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS Hosting
In case you wish to use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you will find 3 different control panels to choose from on the order page. Depending on the Operating System that you select and what you're looking for, you can have your VPS set up with Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. The first is the most straightforward one to use and you'll be able to take care of every aspect of the service through it in one place, which includes payments, domain registrations and trouble tickets. All the domains that you host on the hosting server will be handled in the exact same account. The other two control panels will allow you to set up an individual account for each and every domain hosted on the server and you will have root-level access, still they are trickier to work with, so if you lack preceding experience with them, you could experience some issues. DirectAdmin and cPanel are also perfect for creating your own web hosting company because they both include client and reseller levels.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of the dedicated server plans that we sell, you will find 3 separate control panels on the order page. The first is our Hepsia Control Panel, that will help you to manage the entire server as a single account, so you will see all your domains, emails, databases, invoices and support tickets in one place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will enable you to set up multiple accounts and if you get the server with them, you'll also have full root access. Both of the control panels will also give you the opportunity to start your own hosting company because they have a reseller level which will allow you to create hosting packages and control multiple server-side settings. Hepsia is the best choice when you want everything to be simple, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are good if you would like to have more control and in case you have some experience in taking care of your own server.
