What is Cpanel Hosting and What are its Advantages?
Cpanel is a very popular web hosting control panel that is easy to use and feature rich.
With Cpanel you can manage all aspects of your hosting service such as setting up email accounts @yourdomain names, creating MySQL databases, setting up custom error pages.
What are the Features of Cpanel?
Manage email accounts:
You can setup email accounts @yourdomainname, setup autoresponder messages (eg: for when on holidays), setup mailing lists, check your email via webmail (access email from any internet connected device)
- Create POP3 & IMAP Email accounts
- Email Forwarding
- Web Mail
You also get several website builder tools such as rvsitebuilder. With the online website builder Rvsitebuilder you can create a website in minutes. You just select the look of the website from hundreds of templates, insert your text and images and when you click on publish it will automatically publish your website to your web space.
You can setup addon domain names (additional domain names to your hosting account that will hold a separate website), setup subdomains (eg: blog.yourdomain.com), park domain names (eg: you want to have several domain names redirecting to the same website) and setup redirects (redirecting pages to other urls)
You can view and analyse the traffic to your website, see who is coming to your website, where they came from (what search engine), what keywords they inserted in the search facility to reach your website.
View Error Log: You can see the errors of your website so that you can try to correct them.
Setup ftp accounts. An ftp account is what you need in order to access your web hosting space to publish or modify pages etc.
You can upload files via the hosting control panel file manager. But we do recommend using an ftp tool such as filezilla or a web design tool such as dreamweaver or Iweb etc.
You can make your own backups and download them to your own pc anytime by using the cpanel control panel.
You can also restore your website anytime by using one of your own backups.
Disk Space Usage:
You can alson monitor the amount of disk space used.
With these feature you can create your own custom error pages. So that if a page is not found instead of being redirected to an ugly error page you can redirect to a nice customized and branded page.
Manage your MySQL databases. Create a database, remove one. You can also manage it online with the easy to use tool phpMyAdmin
Setup Cron Jobs, IP Deny Manager etc.
