In the web hosting field, a control panel is a web-based tool that enables you to manage your web hosting account through a graphic interface using various instruments. Since the alternative is to enter commands in a command line, many people prefer to use a control panel to control their web page content. There're many control panel brands and the ease of administration through each one is different, but the vast majority of software tools supply a basic set of services which you'll be able to manage employing a point-and-click interface. These include working with files and folders, managing emails and databases or viewing access and error logs. Some control panels will enable you to do a lot more things too, so when you purchase a hosting plan, you should check the benefits and drawbacks of the tool which you will use to control your new account.

Multiple Control Panels in VPS Hosting

In case you'd like to use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you'll find 3 separate control panels to pick from on the order page. Depending on the Operating System that you select and what you're looking for, you could have your VPS set up with Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. The first is the simplest one to use and you'll be able to take care of each aspect of the service through it in one place, including payments, domain name registrations and trouble tickets. All the domains that you host on the web server will be handled in the same account. The other two control panels will permit you to generate an individual account for each domain hosted on the server and you will have root-level access, but they are more difficult to use, so in case you lack previous experience with them, you may experience some issues. DirectAdmin and cPanel are also ideal for launching your own hosting company as they both contain client and reseller levels.

Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you acquire one of the dedicated server plans that we sell, you'll find three different control panels on the registration page. The first is our Hepsia Control Panel, that will help you to control the server as a single account, so you'll see all your domain names, email addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in a single place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will allow you to generate multiple accounts and in case you get the server with any of them, you will also be provided with full root access. Both of the control panels will also give you the ability to start your own web hosting company since they have a reseller level which will allow you to create hosting packages and manage a lot of server-side settings. Hepsia is the very best choice when you want everything to be easy, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are excellent if you want to have additional control and if you have some practical experience in managing your own server.
