Control Panel Benefits
Control Panel Benefits
A dedicated server is only as good as the software used to manage it. Control panels simplify the day-to-day management of your dedicated server, whether it's for the individual use of your business or to facilitate shared hosting for multiple customers. Windows or Linux, this is your choice.
Control panels, through a web-based interface, are designed to automate a number of hosting related server administration functions for Web sites making complex administration tasks much easier.
A server administrator uses a control panel to set up new Web sites, e-mail accounts, and DNS entries. The administrator can typically create new website and predetermine resource allocation parameters for the domains.
With the Control Panel, you can also upgrade and install new Softwares or upgrade the OS already installed on your dedicated server.
Several Control Panels are available:
1: cPanel Control Panel
