In the hosting field, a control panel is a web-based instrument that allows you to control your hosting account via a graphic interface using various tools. Considering that the alternative is to type in commands in a command line, most of the people prefer to use a control panel to manage their web content. There are many control panel types and the ease of administration through each of them is different, yet the vast majority of tools provide a basic set of services that you can control employing a point-and-click interface. Such as working with files and folders, managing emails and databases or viewing access and error logs. Several control panels will allow you to do many more things too, so when you buy an Internet hosting plan, you should check the benefits and drawbacks of the tool that you will use to control your new account.
Multiple Control Panels in VPS Servers
If you wish to use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you shall find three separate control panels to choose from on the order page. Depending on the Operating System that you choose and the things you need, you can have your VPS set up with Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. The first is the most convenient one to use and you will be able to manage each and every aspect of the service through it in one place, which includes payments, domain registrations and trouble tickets. All domains that you host on the server will be managed in the exact same account. The other two control panels will allow you to create a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and you will have root-level access, still they are trickier to work with, so in case you lack prior experience with them, you could experience some issues. DirectAdmin and cPanel are also ideal for creating your own hosting company as they both feature client and reseller levels.
Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you'll have 3 control panels to make your choice from for your machine. The easiest one to use is called Hepsia and it's in-house built. It will allow you to perform a lot of things in one place, so even when you have minimum experience, you will not have any difficulties to take care of your web content, domains, payments and / or support tickets without the need to log into another system. Hepsia also has the most user-friendly interface. In contrast, the other two control panels - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more complicated to use, so you are expected to have better technical skills so that you can use them, but they will give you additional control over various server settings and will allow you to host every domain in an individual account. The latter option makes these two control panels appropriate for launching a reseller business and selling internet hosting accounts to other individuals.
