Beautiful

What do you like best?

there are a lot of advantages for cpanel, the most important one is that it's popular and widely used by all the industry-leading web hosting companies. the interface is beautiful and icon based so its very easy to navigate through as well as extremely user-friendly. even thou primarily Linux based it supports a wide range of other popular operating systems including but not limited to Trustix, Debian, Fedora. Cpanel is cheaper than most of the other services offered and start as low as $25 each. another great hing about cpanel is the customization offered, cpanel is skinnable and made to look unique without causing any trouble to the features which is awesome. they also update the platform time to time and thus guarantee security and Quality.

What do you dislike?

even thou they are affordable and comes with greatest of benefits over other panel's in the market, most of the VPS hosting providers don't provide the service at a competitive price that everyone can afford. even thou its easy to use the cpanel is not professional looking.

Cpanel the best for website owners

What do you like best?

cPanel for website owners provides the user interfaces to manage a more familiar website in the world. With cPanel, website owners can easily manage their email accounts, databases, applications, security, FTP and control every aspect of their websites.

What do you dislike?

The File Manager tool allows website owners to change files, add new files and folders, move and many more powerful tools. All this is done in a simple graphical interface. So there's not much I do not like about him.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The use of disk space allows website owners to know exactly where their data is concentrated. A simple chart gives website owners the power to find the source of the data that overflows. Whether in the mail, backup copies or temporary files, the use of disk space can be useful for the owners of the websites and the space occupied.

FTP accounts

The FTP Accounts tool in cPanel allows the website owner to control who has access to upload, download and edit files and folders through the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). FTP accounts can be created using a simple form and can contain accounts such as the directory size in FTP accounts. Through this interface, website owners can also change passwords, change account boundaries, delete accounts and even download files for popular FTP clients.

FTP session control

FTP Session Control empowers website owners with the ability to see which users are using FTP.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool removes the need to code the command line and the sometimes confusing complexities that come with the command line interfaces. These tools allow the owner of the website:

Create new files

Create new folders

Copy files and folders

Move files and folders

Upload files from a local machine

Download files to the local machine

Delete files and folders

Rename files and folders

Edit files through:

A simple text editor

A color-coded graphic code editor

A graphic HTML editor WYSIWYG

Change file and folder permissions

See files

Extract and compress files

Backups

Backup copies allow website owners to create backup copies for different sections of your site.

Go with cPanel for simple server interaction!

What do you like best?

Our company uses cPanel in conjunction with InMotionHosting's platform of services. When we were beginners with cPanel, our first experience couldn't be more user friendly. The organization of the website services, relevant icons, and screen flow all made the opening experience have a sharp learning curve. Access your hosting server settings, email accounts, and more with this user-friendly software. Without a doubt, the File Manager proved to be most useful when interacting with cPanel. When doing any type of intermediate level web development, you almost always need to access the underlying file structure. With cPanel, the display screens, expandable hierarchy, and easy to use FTP function made for a great experience. Even better, we are able to make code edits right in the file and save the changes! This beats having to third-party FTP into the server, download the file, make the changes, and upload. Saves so many steps, thanks cPanel developers!

What do you dislike?

Password management with InMotionHosting and cPanel - there are separate passwords needed for the usernames and accounts. Not a huge deal but would be nice to have single-sign-on encryption.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just jump right in and start playing with your website's features - cPanel is very user friendly! Definitely use the file manager when developing website and accessing your file system. We have found that the expandable/collapsible and editable file system is amazing!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Server management, web hosting file management, and email account management. Clear benefit is usability and sharp learning curve.

Top quality website hosting program

What do you like best?

Easy to manage web services like domains and sub domains for users accounts compared to going into the server and manually configuring it. So that it may be able to run & deploy without any errors or issues later on down the road! . I also love the php versions your able to work with using this app.

Security is always being updated and should not need to have any main concerns for site security over preform ace I've noticed using it through out the years .

What do you dislike?

I don't like it's not a windows based script program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a non windows based operating system and your looking to provide web hosting for yourself or having multiple domain accounts on the server this would be a great tool to help manage all aspects of the functions of web hosting!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Web users can have their own login via ftp and creating sub domains and configuration of multiple IPs to each domain we use been so much easier.

Best GUI comparing to any other control panels

What do you like best?

In cpanel, mostly use of file manager and database which is very easy and nice GUI provided in CPanel that i like most. Otherthen, one more thing i like most that is i think not provided in any other control panel that is : while any user ( we have given temporary access ) try to upload shell script then CPanel will not allow to upload it. I think i like that most as a security view.Third point is that it provide very easy solution to install SSL certificates.

What do you dislike?

When i am using JIO internet then sometimes it logouts me with error : "Your IP has been changed", even if i have not restarted JIO route / not changed IP.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommand it to all IT guys because i used many control panels and CPanel is worth buying it.Because if you use some other control panel, then sure there is something it is not possible in all other panels like in Kloxo Panel / Direct Admin : not possible to upload / extract larger ZIP file but same thing is possible in CPanel. One more thing : its documentation is clear and also it has large community so you can't stuck at all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CPanel is mostly used to make site live. My 99% ( except 1-2 ) clients providing me CPanel. It's very easy to upload site because it provides to upload whole ZIP file format and allow to extract online with larger amount.
