The cPanel Hosting Control Panel is designed for both beginning webmasters and veteran web-entrepreneurs.
Used by thousands of hosting providers and customers since 1997, cPanel is an all-inclusive, user-friendly and in-depth solution that automates the numerous workings of your web server.
Although cPanel is the #1 and best hosting control panel available, some of the biggest hosting companies choose to save a few dollars by creating proprietary alternatives.
These less powerful server management pages are usually more complicated to use.

Managing a website with cPanel
The most important part of a website owner’s job is creating, uploading, and editing web pages. cPanel simplifies the tasks related to managing a server, such as:
- Easily upload and manage web pages in cPanel’s File Manager.
- Use cPanel’s Web Disk feature to drag and drop files into the customer’s account.
- Use traditional file transfer methods (including FTP, SFTP, and FTPS).
- Create additional FTP accounts for employees.
Install commonly used web-based applications such as WordPress blogs, osCommerce stores, and phpBB forums, simply by answering a few quick questions in the cPanel interface.
Backing up data is simple with cPanel’s Backup Wizard. Our software comes equipped with an interface to manage and create backups for your entire account.
Virus protection makes it easy to scan files for viruses. You can even prevent other websites from inappropriately using your bandwidth, password-protect areas of your site, and set up cPanel to automatically ban a user who shares a password to a restricted area of the website.
Many SEOs prefer cPanel because of the amount of information it provides about web traffic. Web statistics can be generated by three different statistics generators. In addition, logs of errors encountered by website visitors, bandwidth tracking, and even raw FTP access logs are available via the cPanel interface.
Professional web developers love cPanel, too. They can quickly view a server's PHP configuration, install Ruby Gems, customize error pages and how content is served.
cPanel provides comprehensive email management. Website owners can use cPanel to create email accounts. Account holders can access mail at any time, from any computer with a web browser.
