A control panel is a web-based graphic interface which allows you to manage different aspects of your hosting service. Examples of what you'll be able to do by using this kind of a software tool are e-mail and file management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etcetera. Since there're 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 web hosting company provides. For example, you may have a given option in one control panel and not in another, or it may take more steps to do a specific task. Such an instrument gives you the chance to use a point-and-click interface rather than inputting commands with complex syntax in a command line. Though some users would prefer the latter option, the majority of users welcome the easier level of administration that a control panel offers.

Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we sell, you will find as many as three different control panels on the registration page. The first is our Hepsia Control Panel, that will allow you to manage the whole server as a single account, so you will find all your domain names, e-mail addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in one place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will permit you to generate multiple accounts and in case you get the server with them, you will also get full root access. Both of the control panels will also give you the opportunity to launch your own web hosting company because they have a reseller level that will enable you to create hosting plans and take care of multiple server-side settings. Hepsia is the right choice if you want everything to be simple, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are good if you would like to have additional control and in case you have some experience in taking care of your own server.
