What is cPanel? It is UNIX (see What is UNIX here) based web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools to simplify the process of hosting a website. cPanel is divided into 3 interfaces - main administration, for distributors (resellers) and for end users (cPanel users).   

Through cPanel it controls both the client website and the configuration of the services that are maintained on the hosting server. For this purpose, there are several levels of access – administrators can manage and configure the entire hosting server; distributors (resellers) – their customers; customers - their websites.

Also cPanel has command line and API based access that allows third parties (software vendors, web hosting companies and businesses) to automate standard system administration processes. 

cPanel is designed to run on both physical server and virtual private servers (VPS) and supports CentOS, Red Hat Linux and more… 

Used by cPanel technologies are: Apache, PHP, Postgres, Perl, MySQL, Python, DNS, POP3, SMTP, IMAP services. cPanel is most often accessed on port 2082, and through an SSL connection on port 2083. You can view a free 15-day trial from the button below.
