A control panel is a web-based graphic interface which enables you to manage different aspects of your hosting service. Some examples of what you'll be able to do by using this kind of an instrument are e-mail and file management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etc. Since you'll find various control panel brands, the services that you can manage are also different and can also depend on the characteristics that the hosting company offers. For example, you may have a specific option in one control panel and not in another, or it may take additional steps to perform a particular task. Such an instrument gives you the option to use a point-and-click interface instead of entering commands with complex syntax in a command line. Despite the fact that some users would prefer the aforementioned option, the vast majority of users like the easier level of administration that a control panel offers.

Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you acquire one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you shall find three different control panels on the registration page. The first one is our Hepsia Control Panel, that will enable you to manage the server as a single account, so you'll see all your domains, email addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in a single place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will allow you to create multiple accounts and in case you get the server with them, you will also have full root access. Both of the control panels will also provide you with the opportunity to make your own web hosting company because they have a reseller level that will enable you to create hosting plans and manage multiple server-side settings. Hepsia is the optimal choice when you want everything to be easy, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are good if you want to have additional control and if you have some practical experience in controlling your own server.
