A few years ago, the cPanel Control Panel seemed to be a proven front runner on the web hosting market. Its level of popularity grew so large that nowadays cPanel is a synonym of Control Panel. Nevertheless, the cPanel Control Panel is based on out–of–date concepts and what worked well in 2005 isn’t actual at present.
This is exactly why, we developed the AfterHost Control Panel, designed around the ideas of these days and geared up for the trials of the foreseeable future. It has been built to perform in the cloud, to always be simple to use and to allow you to control every aspect of your web presence: website, domain and invoicing, all from one place.
1. Domain name/invoicing/site settings
When using the AfterHost Control Panel you’ll be able to handle all of your web sites, domains and email addresses within exactly the same location. You don’t need to go with any additional payments or domain name interfaces.
The cPanel Control Panel doesn’t support simultaneous management of domains and web sites. You have one billing panel for your domain names and invoices, and yet another Control Panel for your websites.
2. File Arrangement
With the AfterHost Control Panel, each web address and subdomain will have own folder in the root website hosting account directory. This way, all web sites will be fully insulated from one another.
If you decide to look after several web sites from one cPanel hosting account, it could be really difficult. You’ll have a single main web site and all of the other websites and subdomains will be incorporated into its directory as subdirectories. If you’d like to avail of an individual directory for each individual website, you will need to use separate Control Panel tools for each.
3. File Manager
With the File Manager of the AfterHost Control Panel, you’ll have 100% control of the data files of your websites. It will be easy for you to quickly upload new files using drag–n–drop feature, efficiently modify a few files simultaneously by way of the multi–selection option, unzip archives with a click of the mouse, edit files using the builtin plain and WYSWYG editors and a lot more.
The cPanel’s File Manager will give you limited control over your files and folders. You’ll have trouble uploading a number of files at a time and won’t have the capacity to drag and drop files because this functionality is not supported. An archive/unzip functionality isn’t supported either. File modifying applications have also been limited.
4. Freely available Extras
Each individual website hosting supplier supplying cPanel decides on its own precisely what freely available extras to include in your web hosting package. And since cPanel is a licensed Control Panel, the free–of–charge bonus features should also be covered by the web hosting provider. This will certainly raise the cost of your web hosting package, so the totally free bonus features featured in your service will actually be paid for.
5. Control Panel Interface Speeds
We’ve enhanced our Control Panel to perform smoothly on our hardware and software solely. This makes it noticeably faster than other site management tools. We have additionally designed it to
utilize the entire capacity of your connection to the Internet – the quicker your web connection is, the better our Control Panel interface works.
cPanel is still functioning on a platform from 2000’s and will really slow down at times. The cPanel team of developers has made a vital step with the launch of cPanel accelerated. Even so, in assessment experiments, prevalent web site administration tasks usually demonstrate far better outcomes with less popular Control Panel interfaces.
6. Multi–domain Management
Using the AfterHost Control Panel, you’ll be able to control numerous domain names and web sites from just one place. Moving between domain name management and site management is carried out by just switching to a new area of the Control Panel. You do not have to log into a different web address to manage your website.
The cPanel Control Panel will keep different elements isolated – you’ll have to manage your domains from 1 login area and your web sites from another. Each site features its own Control Panel. Handling multiple web sites from one Control Panel is also possible, but could be puzzling simply because all added domains will be kept in the directory of the main domain name.
7. Control Panel Menu
In the AfterHost Control Panel, you’ll be shown the most up–to–date stats for your web sites and with easy shortcut icons to the main parts. Plus, you can easily navigate within the Control Panel, thanks to AfterHost’s top navigation bar, which features instant access to all offered menus.
In the cPanel home page, you will find icons to all areas of the Control Panel. It means that, even though you never employ a section, you will still find it in the home page. In addition, to navigate between the different sections, you have to return back to the home page and then go to another section.
8. Demo Accounts
The AfterHost Control Panel contains a full demo that includes nearly every menu and function it is equipped with. You can start creating a website, deploy applications, create email addresses, and so forth. Thus, you can get a a lot more complete perception of its user interface and capabilities before you sign up.
The cPanel Control Panel is equipped with a simple demo account that doesn’t supply you with access to the primary website administration instruments you wish to analyze. It’ll reveal to you the way a common index page looks like and you’ll have access to a small percentage of all available tools and functions. The other areas will be inactive unless you join.
