A control panel is a web-based graphic interface which permits you to manage various aspects of your web hosting service. Examples of what you will be able to do through this kind of a software instrument are file and e-mail management, DNS records editing, URL forwarding, etcetera. Since there are various control panel brands, the services that you can manage are also different and may also depend on the characteristics that the internet 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 a tool gives you the opportunity to use a point-and-click interface rather than inputting commands with complex syntax within a command line. Although some users prefer the aforementioned option, the vast majority of users welcome the easier level of administration which a control panel provides.

Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers

In case you get one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you will find as many as three different control panels on the signup page. The first one is our Hepsia Control Panel, which will enable you to manage the entire server as a single account, so you will find all your domain names, e-mail addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in a single place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will allow you to set up multiple accounts and if you get the server with any of them, you will also get full root access. Both of the control panels will also provide you with the ability to launch your own internet hosting company since they have a reseller level which will allow you to create hosting plans and take care of multiple server-side settings. Hepsia is the ideal choice when you want everything to be simple, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are excellent if you would like to have additional control and when you have some practical experience in managing your own server.
