What is cPanel & How To Learn About it

CPanel is an internet-based Control Panel that makes it easy for you to manage all aspects of your website.

You can use this control panel to manage your email accounts, databases, files on your website, and more.

What is the use of Cpanel?

The Cpanel allows the owner of the crypto web hosting account to manage it with ease. Without it would require root access to the server, and an advanced knowledge of server management.

Cpanel allows users to manage their FTP accounts, create backups (Back Up), set up email accounts, add new domain or sub domains, password to protect Folders, and even add scheduled tasks.

It is useful because it enables the user to manage the hosting account on its own, without needing third party support.

The MySql database is given the ability to manage using PHPMyAdmin.

Using this tool, users can edit databases, give privileges to individual users, optimize tables and more. To cPanel also allows the creation of new databases with just a few mouse clicks.

What is the best feature of cPanel?

One of the best features of cPanel is the Fantastico tool, which automates the installation of a vast range of popular blog and CMS, including WordPress, B2evolution, Joomla, Mambo, and Drupal.

Fantastico also includes e-commerce applications, forum scripts, and customer service tools.

Instead of having to create a database yourself, upload the files via FTP and then edit the configuration files, which errors can occur in the process, even if you know how to do it, Fantastico handles the Always for you.

Another useful feature of Fantastico is that updates can be installed in the same way as the original script was installed. Although this process does not always work as smoothly as the initial installation, it may be for you a huge time-saver.

Typically, upgrade failures occur only if a script was highly modified. Since most Fantastico users are beginners, it is unlikely that you will experience any problems with the upgrade process.

Other features of cPanel

In addition to Fantastico, the cPanel also includes the AWStats tool, a server-side statistics tracking script that takes the page data from the Internet server's log files.

Because AWStats reads data directly from Apache files (or other HTTP deamon), calendar, it is much more accurate than off-site solutions like Google Analytics.

To cPanel is not the only web hosting control Panel on the market, but it is the most feature-rich, and the most popular. Alternatives such as Plesk offer similar features, but are often considered less user-friendly.

If you want to be able to manage all aspects of your web hosting without having to constantly communicate with customer support, prefer cPanel.
