cPanel’s selling point is its features. From Backup Wizard to Bandwidth, cPanel makes it easy for admin, resellers, and end-users alike to access and control their websites. There’s a reason that this Linux-based web hosting control panel is one of the most popular ways to host a website around. Whatever you want cPanel to do, there’s a feature for that.

What does cPanel do anyway

In the most basic sense, cPanel is a web hosting control panel. It takes all the specifics of hosting a web site and converts it into a graphical interface. Automation tools allow someone who’s not an advanced programmer to tweak, upload, update, and customize their website. It allows you to quickly upload your files, view your stats, and much more. While some website owners will never see anything as advanced as cPanel (they use web admin or the IT department to handle this), many find it a great introduction to website management. This is due in large part to the number of features that cPanel boasts. If there’s something you want, it probably already has a feature for it. On the rare chance it doesn’t, it still plays nice with a variety of third party features.

Backup Wizard

If you’re not sure how to create a backup of your website, Backup Wizard is here to help. Once you’ve mastered the process you can use the regular “Backup” feature. In the meantime, allow Backup Wizard to guide you through creating a copy of your website. Hopefully, you’ll never need it.


The Bandwidth interface allows you to view your site’s monthly and total bandwidth usage. This lets you know when you’re running up on the limit of your hosting plan. If you’re sharing a server, overages can take a lot of money out of your pocket. Make sure you’re not loading down your site too much.


This allows you to make one URL automatically funnel to another page. Most web sites use it to make a short, catchy URL redirect to one with a longer or more clunky name. You can also use it direct people from an old domain to your new landing home page, for example.

IP Blocker

Hopefully you’ll never have to use the IP blocker, but if you do, cPanel has your back. One of the best features of cPanel, is the ease with which they allow you to manage access to your site. You can use this feature to block site access from a range of IP addresses. If your site is suffering from spam attacks, this can stop it.

User Manager

cPanel doesn’t make you jump through hoops to manage sub-accounts. You can use this feature to add, manage, and delete accounts without hassle. Moreover, it is secure, powerful, and flexible, but one of the best features is ease of use. The variety of features on cPanel means it’s easy to use no matter what you’re trying to do

cPanel is a great interface for web hosting. It puts options into graphical terms. It has a wide variety of features that make managing your web site easier and more efficient than ever. Contact us today for help with all your web hosting needs.
