When you have your own website, administration of the site is a necessary consideration. Simplifying and reducing the amount of time spent on website administration will allow you to devote more time to the content of your site. However, certain tasks like setting up email accounts and managing your files and (if needed) databases will need to be done. That’s where cPanel can be a great help.
When you are choosing your web hosting, one of the items you might want to look for is whether the hosting company offers the cPanel interface with your hosting package. Some web hosts offer their own interface which may or may not be as good. Because it is such an effective and easy to use web interface, and because it is probably the most recognized tool for administering a website, we would suggest you strongly consider choosing a web hosting plan that includes cPanel.
cPanel allow you to handle the administrative tasks associated with your website. These functions include: adding domains, creating email accounts, creating subdirectories, file management, application installation, web statistics, site security, MySQL databases, and more. Your hosting company may slightly customize their cPanel and add some of their own features. But the basic cPanel point and click interface will be there.
Here are some examples of the cPanel interface:
Many of the top rated website hosts include cPanel in their hosting plans. These include Hostgator, Bluehost, and InMotion Hosting.
cPanel can make the administration of your website a lot easier. Keep this in mind when shopping for hosting.
