A few years ago, the cPanel Control Panel seemed to be a proven front runner on the hosting market. Its reputation grew so big that nowadays cPanel is an analogue of Control Panel. However, the cPanel Control Panel has been created on dated ideas and what was very successful eight years ago is just not actual presently.
Because of this, we created the a4host Control Panel, built on the concepts of today and ready for the trials of tomorrow. It has been created to perform in the cloud, to be simple to use and to also allow you to control every aspect of your online presence: web site, domain and invoicing, all from one location.
1. Domain/billing/web site controls
Using the a4host Control Panel you are able to control your web sites, domains and email addresses within exactly the same place. You do not need to count on any additional invoicing or domain interfaces.
Using the cPanel Control Panel, you have to log into 2 different website management solutions – a payments panel from where you maintain domains and billing and the cPanel Control Panel from where you take care of your web sites.
2. File Structure
Using the a4host Control Panel, all the domains and subdomains will be separated from each other. Every single website is going to have its very own directory segregated from the rest within the main folder of your website hosting account. You can quickly move from focusing on one site to maintaining another.
In the cPanel Control Panel, you will have a single directory for your primary site and all of the additional sites are situated inside this folder. This would make handling different sites from a single user interface very confusing.
3. File Manager
The a4host File Manager is created to function exactly like your desktop file explorer. Offering characteristics like drag–and–drop file file publishing, right–click navigation menus, zip/unarchive options, and so on., it’ll make working with your files quick and easy. And also, there’s an incorporated WYSIWYG editor in addition to a back–end code editor.
The File Manager of cPanel is sluggish and restricted in functions. Submitting a number of data files demands a lot of time and doesn’t include drag–n–drop support. The built–in archive/unzip tool is difficult to rely on and the file managing instruments feature just basic controls. There’s no immediate access to the included file managing actions.
4. No–charge Add–ons
The a4host Control Panel is managed by our company and includes a rich variety of 100–percent–free add–ons that will usually cost you over $1000 bucks with some other suppliers. You’ll get access to countless cost free layout themes, the Simple Site Installer, Free Web Applications, a PHP 1 Click Framework Installer, a collection of Advanced Applications, etc.
Each individual web hosting supplier supplying cPanel decides on its very own exactly what no–charge gifts to include in your cloud hosting deal. And also, since cPanel is a commercial Control Panel, the cost–free gifts also have to be covered by the web hosting provider. This will for sure affect the value of your hosting plan, so the 100–percent–free bonus features listed in your package will actually be paid for.
5. Control Panel Tool Performance Speeds
We’ve enhanced our Control Panel to perform flawlessly on our equipment solely. This will make it quicker than similar site management tools. We’ve also configured it to
employ the full capacity of your Internet connection – the speedier your Internet is, the faster our site management solution works.
The cPanel Control Panel is installed on numerous machines, running on a variety of hardware and software configurations. Nonetheless, its universal syndication leads to significantly sluggish and much less risk–free functionality as compared with other site management tools that have been optimized for just one platform only.
6. Multi–domain Controls
The a4host Control Panel provides you with a unique option to maintain multiple domain names and web sites from a single easy–to–use interface. Domain name administration is flawless and changing to site operations means you only need to shift to another area of the Control Panel.
If you attempt to host a lot of domains in a cPanel website hosting account, you will end up faced with a very difficult folder structure. By default, cPanel hosting accounts are engineered to work with only 1 domain name. In this way, if you want to work with ten domains concurrently, for example, you will have to setup 10 unique accounts. Or else, all of the extra domain names’ files will be located in the folder of the main domain name.
7. Control Panel Menu
In the a4host Control Panel, you will be offered the latest reports for your websites and with handy shortcut icons to the main sections. Furthermore, you’ll be able to browse through the Control Panel, thanks to our top menu bar, which has links to all presented sections.
The cPanel Control Panel shows all icons in the homepage, which means it’s not tailored to your own requirements. Also, right after you access a menu, you can’t easily switch to a different one and need to to go back to the main page instead. This type of navigation can be extremely irritating for you, particularly if you utilize multiple Control Panel sections every time you change your sites.
8. Test Control Panel Accounts
The a4host Control Panel boasts a full demo that provides virtually every menu and functionality it is equipped with. You could start setting up a website, deploy web applications, create emails, etcetera. Thus, you can obtain a much more all–embracing idea of its interface and characteristics prior to signing up.
From the demo web hosting account of the cPanel Control Panel, you’re able to solely become familiar with look and feel of its user interface. Virtually all functions are unavailable and you also can’t actually get past the main page. With the majority of website hosting companies, you’ll be granted entry to a generic cPanel demo version, and won’t have the ability to preview the Control Panel you will actually be utilizing to look after your web sites if you sign up.
Instead of just reading about the a4host Site Control Panel, you can easily consider our Live Demo to see yourself how effortless website managing could be.
