CPanel is one of the most popular web hosting control panel based on the UNIX operating system which has earned its recognition as the industry-leading control panel. The reason for the popularity of CPanel is twofold, namely an excellent graphical user interface and sophisticated automation functionality to make administration of a website extremely easy and effective. CPanel is accompanied by the Web Host Manager WHM software which is used on the server administration end to make the job of maintaining a server extremely hasslefree. It is also an excellent management tool for resellers. CPanel supports all the major server-end operating systems including Linux, CentOS and FreeBSD and can be employed for administration on either a dedicated hosting server or a VPS server.
CPanel hosting is therefore the type of hosting that comes bundled with the CPanel control panel. It has become the number one choice for a great majority of hosting companies operating on the scene. CPanel offers an immense amount of simplification by minimizing the overhead for complex tasks thereby allowing customers to administer their accounts smoothly and with no skills required. For this reason, CPanel is in high demand by webmasters no matter whether they are professionals or beginners. It allows them all to activate complex scripting technologies with the simple click of a button.
CPanel hosting not only comes bundled with a host of functionalities but is also famous for its ease of use due to its intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface. The GUI for CPanel is very informative and make sure that the client gets the maximum possible help from both textual and video tutorials. This eliminates the need for contacting the customer support staff in the majority of the cases. CPanel also includes the Getting Started Wizards which are an excellent way to quickly familiarize the customer with some of the most commonly used functions.
The security features incorporated into CPanel are also unparalleled and are not found in majority of other web hosting control panels. Some of the most common security tools include antivirus software, rootkit detection and a variety of other functions that enable the backend administrator to lock down the server. Configuration of the security settings is also a breeze with the WHM security Center.
CPanel is also extremely reliable in that it is able to immediately detect a service that is failing and subsequently tries launching that service again. In the case of any reliability issue arising, the administrator can be informed via e-mail or an SMS message. This makes it possible to administer the server in a preventative manner so as to ensure that its operation is as smooth as possible without any obstacles.
The CPanel Web hosting software is able to update itself automatically thereby allowing the end-user whether it be server administrator or the client to keep enjoying the latest security fixes, patches etc. and stay on top of the updates. The automatic updates can also be disabled using the CPanel interface which allows the user to micromanage the included functionality. Furthermore, additional support for new technologies can also be added using the EasyApache interface. There's also the option to uncheck specific features if they are intended to be disabled. The following top 10 companies listed at WHL offer CPanel web hosting.
