In the early stages of hosting, one of the things users and webmasters need to pay attention to is the type of control panels that they use every day to manage and develop the website(s).
The web servers are generally divided into two types of Linux and Windows. Linux servers generally use cPanel, direct admin, etc as a control panel. cPanel can be considered as the most popular control panel in the world of web hosting (Linux host).
This popularity of the American control panel is because of its features such as user-friendly graphical interface, responsive support and more. That has made this control panel the most popular control panel in the world.
What Are The Advantages Of cPanel?
It is easy to install
The fact is that the installation of cPanel is very simple and easy. You will just enter a line of code and installation of cPanel starts.
cPanel user-friendly interface
Most of the control panels have a complicated interface but cPanel has the most user-friendly interface to do the configurations. And one of the advantages of cPanel is that basic users will be able to do the configurations they need with the least amount of knowledge of Linux!
cPanel not only allows you to install different software, plugins, and modules, but it also allows you to choose the version of those instantly.
For example, with just a few clicks you can select the version of PHP you want. Worried about your old PHP scripts? Do these old codes still work like MySQL Connect and MySQL Query? Don’t worry!
Just change the PHP version to 5.6 with a few clicks. Your site will work well. Conversely, if you want to improve the performance of your PHP web application, change the PHP version to 7.4. You will immediately feel the impact of the faster interpreter of this version of PHP when creating pages.
Other cPanel features that can be mentioned are Raw Access Log, Parsed Access Log and Error Log Access. With these options, the software developer can see the errors generated by the software. The site owner can also view access statistics for his website and the trend of site traffic fluctuations with these options in cPanel.
- Account/User-end(cPanel): gives you a cPanel account(shared resources and IP with other users, limited for email accounts and send amount, etc). you can find this service from shared cPanel hosting providers.
- Reseller/Admin-end(cPanel/WHM): Or you can buy Linux vps or a dedicated server, and install your own cPanel there, which gives you the cPanel/WHM side(full access, admin-end, dedicated resources, and IP) and also you can create cPanel custom accounts, but the price will be higher because you should pay for the cPanel license too.
Why should we use cPanel? cPanel is a full-fledged product, has been around for a considerable time, and a large number of major and prominent web hosting companies are using this powerful control panel currently, So it is the best control panel that you can have!
Also, If you need admin access, dedicated resources, private IP and file system, own mail server, then you can easily buy a cPanel VPS to host your website(s). but, in case your software/website is a toddler and doesn’t need a high amount of resources, we suggest you choose a shared cPanel hosting service.
