The cPanel Control Panel was the undisputed No 1 player among web hosting managing user interfaces some time ago. When website hosting gained popularity, the cPanel platform couldn’t adapt to the new reality and suit the requirements of the dynamic web hosting industry any longer.
The HostNerd Control Panel has been made to run on a cloud website hosting platform and can fairly quickly be fine–tuned whenever a new capability is designed. It’s a 1–stop site management interface for handling your online presence as well as your domains, web sites, billing along with your technical support tickets.
1. Domain/invoicing/website adjustments
The HostNerd Control Panel will allow you to effectively handle your domains, mailboxes and sites with a click of the mouse. That way, you’ll be able to control every aspect of your web presence from one location.
When you need different site management tools – one for your sites, and another from which you can handle your domain names and billing, then cPanel is good for you. However, you’ll have to log into 2 places all at once to successfully manage your online presence.
2. File Structure
With the HostNerd Control Panel, each domain name and subdomain will have its unique folder within the root cloud web hosting account directory. That way, all sites will be fully independent from one another.
With the cPanel Control Panel, you have a single directory for your primary website and all other websites are located inside this folder. This makes managing a variety of web sites from a single interface very puzzling.
3. File Manager
The HostNerd File Manager is made to work much like your desktop file explorer. Including attributes like drag–and–drop file file publishing, right click navigation menus, archive/unarchive options, etcetera., it’ll make manipulating your files quick and easy. In addition, you will find an incorporated WYSIWYG manager together with a code manager.
The File Manager featured in the cPanel Control Panel has been upgraded many times over time, however it still does not offer a decent experience in comparison to other web–based data file administration tools. You are not able to utilize a drag–n–drop capability to publish data files, the zip/unarchive tool can be difficult to rely on at times and the file editing interface is limited in options.
4. No–charge Extras
The HostNerd Control Panel is administered by us and features a rich freely available gifts that will typically cost over $1000 dollars with other hosts. You will have access to a huge selection of no cost design themes, the Easy Web Site Installer, Free Web Apps, a PHP Framework Installer, a collection of Advanced Resources, and so forth.
The zero–cost extras incorporated in the cPanel Control Panel may vary from N/A to several. All of the complimentary bonus tools within the cPanel Control Panel are commercial software and will be available to you provided that your web hosting company has obtained a certification to offer them. This way, if your supplier freely available add–ons with your plan, they will in fact raise the price of the plan.
5. Control Panel Tool Speed
The HostNerd Control Panel has been engineered utilizing the latest web technologies. This way, it uses fully the potential of your web browser and web connection to so that you can handle your websites extremely fast. In our comparison tests, when doing equivalent tasks, HostNerd’s Control Panel reached 3 times quicker rates as compared to competitive control panel solutions.
cPanel is still functioning on a system from 2000’s and will really be sluggish occasionally. The cPanel development team has made an important step with the launch of cPanel accelerated. Nevertheless, in comparison experiments, common web site management tasks often indicate far better outcomes with other Control Panel solutions.
6. Multi–domain name Management
The HostNerd Control Panel will give you a unique solution to control a variety of domain names and sites from a single user–friendly user interface. Domain management is effortless and switching to web site management means you simply need to proceed to another section of the Control Panel interface.
If you attempt to accommodate multiple domains in a cPanel website hosting account, you will end up faced with an extremely confusing directory hierarchy. In general, cPanel web hosting accounts are intended to manage only one domain. In this manner, if you need to work with ten domain names concurrently, for instance, you’ll need to set up 10 separate accounts. Otherwise, all additional domain names’ files will be based in the folder of the primary domain.
7. Control Panel Navigation
The HostNerd Control Panel is actually easy to get around. You will have a useful top navigation menu, from which you can get to every part of the Control Panel, without having to go back to the index page every time. Additionally, we’ve included a simple stats widget on the main page, so when you log in, you can have information of how many visitors have recently attended your website.
The cPanel Control Panel shows all offered icons in the home page, so that it’s not at all adapted to your specific demands. Also, once you access a menu, you cannot instantly move to a different one and will have to get back to the homepage instead. This kind of navigation could be truly irritating for you, particularly if you work with lots of sections every time you modify your websites.
8. Trial Accounts
With the HostNerd Control Panel, we’ve put together a fully featured demo version for you to check out just before signup. You’ll get access to a demo Linux website hosting account from where you’ll be able to set up mail accounts, mount apps, generate new subdomains, and also build a website with any of the web–site builders, and so on. If you like what you have come up with – you can register through the demo interface and keep everything you have come up with thus far.
