Not long ago, the cPanel Control Panel was an undeniable pioneer on the hosting market. Its recognition grew so large that nowadays cPanel is an analogue of Control Panel. Nonetheless, the cPanel Control Panel has been based on outdated concepts and what worked great a few years ago is not of importance currently.
That is why, we developed the OpenHost Control Panel, built on the concepts of these days and prepared for the trials of the foreseeable future. It has been developed to function in the cloud, to always be convenient to use and to also allow you to control every aspect of your online presence: web site, domain name and billing, all from a single place.
1. Domain name/invoicing/website controls
The OpenHost Control Panel lets you effortlessly manage your domain names, email addresses and sites with a click of the mouse. In this manner, you will be able to deal with all aspects of your online presence from 1 location.
The cPanel Control Panel does not offer parallel handling of domain names and web sites. You get one payments panel for your domains and bills, and yet another Control Panel for your sites.
2. File Structure
Maintaining a lot of domain names and sites from one cloud hosting account should be simple. In the OpenHost Control Panel, every single domain name and subdomain is located in a distinct directory and is fully independent from the other.
If you decide to manage a lot of websites from one cPanel hosting account, it can be quite puzzling. You’ll have just one master website and all of the other websites and subdomains will be included into its folder as sub–directories. If you’d like to avail of an individual folder for every single website, you will have to log into different Control Panel tools for each of them.
3. File Manager
Using the File Manager in the OpenHost Control Panel, you’ll get total control over the files of your web sites. It will be easy for you to quickly add new files using drag & drop feature, effectively change a few files at a time through the multi–selection option, extract archives with a click, modify files with the inbuilt generic and WYSWYG editors and many more.
The cPanel’s File Manager provides you with limited control over your files and directories. You will have difficulty uploading a lot of files simultaneously and won’t have the capacity to drag and drop files since this functionality is not supported. An archive/unzip function is just not supported either. File revising tools have also been minimized in number.
4. No–fee Add–ons
The cPanel Control Panel is propagated using a commercial certificate and extra gifts are going to be included for an extra charge. Consequently, even if your provider gives no–charge bonuses inside the cPanel, their price will be contained in the price tag of your cloud hosting plan. Additionally, the quantity and sort of freely available add–ons will change from one hosting provider to another.
5. Control Panel Interface Performance Speed
The OpenHost Control Panel runs on our own cloud hosting plans. It is optimized to work on our set of equipment parts and also to operate with our selection of software programs. This makes it operate a lot quicker than almost any other Control Panel tool out there. And it is safer in terms of performance as well.
cPane is made to be operating on a number of web servers employing numerous equipment configurations. Consequently, it is not fully optimized to operate with a specific system, which may have poor effect on performance rates and reliability. Furthermore, It may be even sluggish at times of high hosting server load.
6. Multi–domain Management
Using the OpenHost Control Panel, you will be able to handle many different domain names and web sites from a single place. Switching between domain name administration and site management is performed by just moving to a new section of the Control Panel. It’s not necessary to sign into a standalone web address to manage your web site.
With cPanel, it is out of the question to handle your domains and your web sites from one area, as the two user interfaces are separated. You will have to sign into 2 unique locations every time you need to manage your domain features and site contents simultaneously.
7. Control Panel Menu
When using the OpenHost Control Panel, you’ll be able to easily browse from one section to another by using our very useful top navigation bar. It offers links to each section of the Control Panel along with a brief explanation of precisely what you’re able to do there. In this way, even if you do not understand what the particular area implies, you will be able to fairly quickly get acquainted with its functions.
The cPanel Control Panel displays all available icons in the main page, which means that it isn’t adapted to your specific demands. At the same time, once you access a menu, you won’t be able to immediately switch to another and need to to go back to the main page instead. This type of navigation could be extremely bothersome for you, particularly if you use a lot of sections each time you manage your websites.
8. Test Control Panel Accounts
The OpenHost Control Panel features a fully featured demo that includes virtually every menu and tools it is equipped with. You can start creating a site, install web applications, create email accounts, etcetera. This way, you can get a a lot more all–embracing understanding of its user interface and functions prior to signing up.
The cPanel Control Panel is designed with a general demo interface that doesn’t give you access to the key site administration instruments you wish to test out. It will reveal to you how a common home page appears to be and you will have access to just a few of all the available controls. All other areas will be turned off unless you join.
We can number each capability of our Control Panel here and match it up against the cPanel Control Panel. Nonetheless, it will likely be a lot quicker if you just take a glance at our live demo version and see the visible difference by yourself.
