cPanel (control panel) is a graphical web-based management tool, designed to make administration of web sites as easy as possible. cPanel handles all aspects of website administration in an easy-to-use interface. It is the standard control panel on the non-Windows hosting plans.

cPanel is commonly accessed on port 2082 (or 2083 for an SSL version). Authentication is either via HTTP or web page login.

cPanel sidebar

The sidebar in cPanel gives you a brief overview of the features and limits set on your hosting account. It also shows the versions of server applications installed, and provides a link to the server's Service status.

cPanel Options

To the client, cPanel provides front-ends for a number of common operations, including the management of PGP keys, crontab tasks, email and FTP accounts, and mailing lists. Several add-ons exist, including Fantastico, a script which allows the automated installation of open source web applications such as phpBB.

Unlike some other web hosting control panels, cPanel manages some software packages separately from the underlying operating system, applying upgrades to Apache, PHP, MySQL, and related software packages automatically. This ensures that these packages are kept up-to-date and compatible with cPanel, but has become a cause for consternation to some, as it becomes difficult to easily install newer versions of these packages.
