Hepsia v. cPanel
cPanel is the most famous Control Panel today. But that does not imply that it is the best - it has many weaknesses and it has had them for such a long time that they are no longer considered weaknesses by the majority of users. But just because something was OK in the year 2000 doesn't mean that the same thing will be okay now.
Here are the most crucial distinctions between the cPanel Control Panel and the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel:
1. Domain/billing/website controls
With Hepsia, you can manage your site, domain name and billing with ease, from a one single place.
With cPanel, you have two separate Control Panel interfaces - one for your web site and another one for your invoices and domain names.
2. File structure
With Hepsia, each domain has its own separate folder.
With cPanel, you have one principal domain folder and all other add-on domain names are located inside it.
3. File Manager
With the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you can take advantage of drag 'n' drop file upload right into the File Manager. It also supports archive/unarchive options and right-click context menus.
After certain recent updates, cPanel's File Manager works and looks much better. However, it offers neither drag-and-drop file upload support, nor archive/unarchive functions.
4. Free bonuses
With Hepsia, you get a myriad of free extras.
With cPanel, the free-of-charge extras you get depend on the hosting packages provider, which implies that you can also receive a stripped-down cPanel with nothing else.
5. Control Panel speed
Tests have proven that the Hepsia web hosting CP is 3 to 5 times faster than the cPanel hosting CP.
While with the The cPanel web hosting CP you do your job, it's built on ideas from the year 2000 and can be slow at times.
6. Mutli-domain controls
Administering ten separate web sites with the Hepsia web hosting CP is not harder than managing 1 or 2 sites.
Hosting more than ten sites in one single cPanel hosting account is indeed hard.
7. Control Panel navigation
The Hepsia web hosting CP lists just the most essential sections on the home page and you can navigate using drop-down menus available in all of the sections.
cPanel displays all available icons on the home page. To move between sections, you always have to go back there.
8. Demo accounts
Hepsia offers a fully fledged demo version with only a couple of functions disabled. You can even set up an entire web site and see how it looks like before deciding whether or not to open an account.
The cPanel hosting Control Panel features a bare-bones demo version, which will only offer you a rough idea of what the cPanel Control Panel can do.
This list can go on and on. But instead of simply reading about these hosting Control Panels, why don't you give the Hepsia Control Panel a try with our Live Demo and see for yourself how easy website hosting can be?
