When first logging into the cPanel control panel of your hosting account, you will notice a basic interface that looks similar to the Microsoft Windows environment. It is nothing fancy at all, just a simple program with numerous icons that represent the functions of your control panel. This simplicity is what has made cPanel [2] the most popular and widely used web hosting control panel. What you see is what you get and that includes everything needed to create and maintain your website. cPanel allows you to manage your domains, email accounts, web statistics and FTP file uploads. One of its best features is the additional scripts that give you the power to implement blogs, message boards, mailing lists and powerful content management systems.

Here is a brief overview of cPanel’s most attractive features:

Wizards and Tutorials

cPanel is packed with features, including helpful wizards and video tutorials that will guide you through the basics. This will help you get comfortable with the interface and adds ease to the task of managing your website.

File Transfer

More than likely, you will be uploading a significant amount of content from your hard drive to the server of your web hosting provider. This is quick and easy with the use of FTP. File Transfer Protocol allows you to securely upload or download files and save backup copies to the server which can be done directly from your preferred web browser.

Database Management

The database is an essential feature in web hosting. cPanel allows you to access, create, remove and manage MySQL [3] databases directly from a centralized interface. This is made easier when using the PHPMyAdmin [4] database management system.

Script Installation

Web hosting companies add great value to their packages with numerous plug-ins. In the “Software/Services” area of your control panel you will find pre-installed scripts that can be used to create clocks, counters, countdown timers, banners and search engines. The best service is the Fantastico [5] script installer. This program gives you the ability install popular blogging software such as b2evolution and Wordpress, content management systems such as Drupal, Joomla and PHP Nuke, image galleries, message boards and much more.


With cPanel you can manage, add or redirect domains with ease. The control panel has many available video tutorials that will help you understand these functions before putting them to use.

Web Stats

cPanel includes a number of statistical programs such as Webalizer [6] and AwStats [7] that allow you to monitor bandwidth, view your latest visitors and error logs. These programs categorize your statistics in comprehensive charts and graphics for easy viewing. This information will give you an idea of what is going on with your site and can serve as a great marketing tool.

More, More, More

There is so much more that can be perofmed with cPanel. This extraordinary software will also help you effectively manage email accounts, encrypt messages to secure your online transactions, create custom error pages, and command scripts that can be set to activate and deactivate at predetermined intervals. If you want to control every aspect of your website, it’s a good idea to find a web host that offers cPanel.
