How to select a control panel?

By admin, 13 May, 2024

In many cases, control panels are supplied with the hosting account by default, so there is not much of a choice involved after you've selected the hosting plan. However, in some cases, you can choose your own web hosting control panel and have it installed on your server if you'd like.

The easiest way to get the control panel of your choice is to opt for a web hosting plan that includes your preferred control panel pre-installed. It may be hard to find a web hosting provider that offers a control panel other than cPanel for basic hosting accounts. However, VPS and dedicated servers usually come with more powerful control panels like Virtuozzo and Plesk. It is important to note that even though these control panels are more powerful, they are not easier to use. If you are just starting out with web hosting, you should definitely consider learning how to use cPanel first.

If you are new to web hosting, you'll definitely need a simple control panel. Look for hosting plans that include tutorial videos that will help you learn how to use the control panel efficiently. Once you become comfortable with your basic control panel, you can start using more advanced software that will give you complete control over more advanced server configurations.
