Wiki | C | Cpanel


The Cpanel or Control Panel is a Unix-based interface provided by many hosting providers to their users to customize or make changes to their accounts. Through this graphical interface, the user can easily control their portion of the UNIX server.

The Cpanel helps in simplifying many web administrative tasks through its intuitive click-and-point interface. Both the administrator and the users can access all the components of the Cpanel through a standard web browser. To allow different levels of access, the Cpanel employs a tiered structure.

Some features of Cpanel include, but are not limited to, are as follows:

 - Database – the user can create new databases, access databases, set up remote access to MySQL, and so much more.

 - Email - the user can create new email accounts, change email passwords, view or modify existing email accounts, set up mailbox quotas, modify MX records, etc.

 - File management – the user can, in the cpanel’s file section, access and modify the files stored in their account, review disk usage, create and manage FTP accounts, backup their cpanel account, use the file manager to modify their files directly, etc.

 - Domains – in the cpanel’s domain section, the user can configure new domains, create sub-domains, set up parked domains and redirects, etc.

Many consider cpanel to be very robust software. It is easy to use with quite a few tools, a full-help menu, and plenty of navigation icons. Through the cpanel, the user can easily view their website statistics and manage their DNS.

There is a version that’s been created especially for VPS servers.

The web host manager version of cpanel is for root administrators and resellers. It permits configuration of DNS and FTP services, branding, security settings, and deployment packages. This allows them to easily support even thousands of user accounts. Sometimes, the cpanel is bundled with auto-installers and other packages too that are made available for additional charges.
