Why cPanel?


New Member
I have seen many customers asking for only cPanel, I wonder why they find cPanel better then any other control panels?

What is your opinion on this?

Clients are used to cPanel, so they ask for it. It's really that simple.

There have been times in the past, that our (Galaxy-Solutions) clients cannot afford cPanel on their dedicated server, so they pick VHCS. After a week, they are loving it even more than cPanel.


Yeah. I'm used to CPanel, so i'd rather have it. I know there are better panels out there, but as it's become the "standard", if you will, then Clients believe that it is the best Panel.

cPanel to me is more user-friendly than other Control panels. Also users who don't know how to upload forum scripts like phpbb or SMF use fantastico in cPanel. So it's easier for them as it's instantly setup, for them. But cPanel is nice becuase it gives you detailed information about Traffic your site is recieving, and other nice features. :)


general the people I see who like cpanel and refuse to use anything else have never actually used anything else.

there are far better control panels than cpanel out there from both the user standpoint and the admins standpoint

Cpanel is fast and easy to use and you will be quick to pick up the ropes with it.
It allows lots of control and the fantastico is great.

Well, I haven't used cPanel for quite a while. I wasn't impressed with it all the last time I used it (cPanel 3), but maybe it has improved since then.


cPanel is a very popular web-based control panel. It is full-featured website development tools that help in your website's management using a graphical user interface. With the Cpanel, you can manage the important aspects of file management, FTP, backups, email management, domain and sub-domain control, user management network Tools, MySQL database administration, etc

thus making cPanel a user friendly website development tool.
cPanel is good for those who want to save their time and cost.

Customers prefer cPanel as the interface is very easy to handle,operations to be performed on your website are easily accessible in terms of modules on the cpanel.
Ex:File Manager-helps to create/edit files and for back-ups
Domains-help to add a domain/sub-domain.
Database-to create/edit/delete data.
Errors:to know website errors.
e-mails-to manage mails and redirects.
Softwares:to install any applications.

it depends from one user to the other,as to which panel they prefer.compared to plesk,cPanels are lower in cost.
The new cPanel pricing has led many in the web hosting world consider whether or not to continue with cPanel in the long run. But for now, a lot of cPanel customers have decided to stick to cPanel or offer alternate like DirectAdmin, Plesk, etc. to their customers.
