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

Multiple Control Panels in VPS Servers

If you would like to use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you'll find 3 different control panels to choose from on the order page. Depending on the Operating System that you pick and what you're looking for, you can have the VPS integrated with Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel. The first one is the simplest one to use and you'll be able to control every aspect of the service through it in one place, including payments, domain name registrations and trouble tickets. All of the domains that you host on the hosting server will be managed in the same account. The other two control panels will enable you to generate an individual account for each and every domain hosted on the server and you'll have root-level access, yet they are trickier to work with, so if you lack previous experience with them, you could experience some issues. DirectAdmin and cPanel are also appropriate for creating your own web hosting company since they both have client and reseller levels.

Multiple Control Panels in Dedicated Servers

In case you purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we sell, you shall find three different control panels on the order page. The first one is our Hepsia Control Panel, that will enable you to manage the server as a single account, so you will see all your domain names, e-mail addresses, databases, invoices and support tickets in a single place. The other two, cPanel and DirectAdmin, will enable you to create multiple accounts and in case you get the server with any of them, you'll also be provided with full root access. Both of the control panels will also give you the opportunity to make your own hosting company since they have a reseller level that will enable you to create hosting packages and take care of a lot of server-side settings. Hepsia is the perfect choice when you want everything to be easy, while cPanel and DirectAdmin are suitable if you would like to have more control and when you have some practical experience in taking care of your own server.
