Your account comes loaded with the world's number one control panel - cPanel. cPanel provides an intuitive interface to help you manage every aspect of your hosting account right from within your browser, simplifying tasks such as:
- Uploading and managing web pages
- Creating email accounts
- Installing web-based applications like blogs, shopping carts, and forums
- Backing up data
- Viewing statistics about visitors
- Reviewing error logs to locate broken links and other problems
Managing a web site with cPanel
The most important part of a website owner's job is creating, uploading, and editing web pages. In cPanel, you have several options for managing content. You can:
- Easily upload and manage web pages with the Online File Manager.
- Use the Web Disk feature to drag and drop files into your account as if it were a local hard drive.
- Use traditional file transfer methods (including FTP, SFTP and FTPS).
- Create additional FTP accounts for employees.
One-Click App Installs
You can install 50+ commonly used web-based applications, such as WordPress blogs, osCommerce stores, and phpBB forums, simply by answering a few quick questions in the control panel interface.
Enterprise Statistics & Logging
Visitor statistics are generated by AWStats, an enterprise-grade visitor analytics tool. In addition, logs of errors encountered by website visitors, bandwidth tracking, and even raw FTP access logs are available via the cPanel interface.
Simple Back Up
Backing up data is simple with Backup Wizard. Your account comes equipped with an interface to help you manage and acquire backups for your entire account. This is in addition to automated nightly server recovery backups.
A Developer's Dream
Professional web developers will love cPanel, too. They can quickly view a server's PHP configuration, create and configure MySQL databases, customize error pages and how content is served.
Virus protection makes it easy to scan files for viruses. You can even prevent other websites from inappropriately using your bandwidth, password-protect areas of a site, and set up cPanel to automatically ban a user who shares a password to a restricted area of the website.
Localization allows you to use cPanel in Arabic, Bengali, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish.
cPanel provides comprehensive email management.
Website owners can use cPanel to create email accounts associated with a website. cPanel supports the standard mail protocols, including POP, IMAP, and SMTP, both with and without SSL encryption.
To curb spam, cPanel provides powerful spam deterrents: SpamAssassin and BoxTrapper. It also offers the ability to automatically route messages to a spam folder.
cPanel provides a web-based interface for checking email, so account holders can access mail at any time, from any computer with a web browser. cPanel also supports the latest email technologies to ensure messages reach the intended destination.
cPanel users can set up email forwarding, which allows account holders to have an address at one domain (such as email@example.com) forward incoming messages to another (such as firstname.lastname@example.org). This can also be useful to businesses that need to route email to an employee's Blackberry® or other mobile device.
For power users, mail filtering and mailing lists are available.
cPanel is easy to use.
To help you get familiar, cPanel includes a Getting Started Wizard, which walks new users through the initial configuration of an account. Users also have access to built-in video tutorials and on-screen documentation, for step-by-step instructions and other useful information.
