WebHostingHub uses cPanel control panel. Having a web hosting account with cPanel is like having 4-wheel drive on your truck. You might not use it on a daily basis, but when you need the power, you can depend on it being there. cPanel leaves other control panels by the roadside. Here’s what makes cPanel better than other control panels.
1-Click Script Installations
The Hub uses the Fantastico script installer with all the web’s top applications like WordPress, forums, image galleries, run your own classified ads site, over 10 popular CMS apps like Joomla and Drupal, customer relationship management (CRM) with support ticket systems, e-commerce carts, FAQ system, mailing lists, web hosting billing, polls and surveys, project management, site builders, wiki apps and more.
IMPORTANT! WordPress runs blazing fast on my Hub account. If you’ve been installing sefl-hosted WordPress blogs for any length of time, you may have noticed how slow it can be, even on a brand new installation. That’s because the server you’re on is not optimized for WordPress. WordPress is a database application and all that back and forth traffic can really slow things down if the web server isn’t configured properly. I noticed an immediate increase in speed from the moment I installed the first blog on my account. Even FTP was fast.
The Best Email Filters
My #1 reason for switching to cPanel years ago was for email spam filtering. I got mail bombed by someone that sent out thousands of emails to an email removal list and forged MY email address as the sender. Most of the messages got stuck in an undeliverable loop that bounced back and forth for days. Short of deleting my email address, there wasn’t any way to stop it with the web hosting I had at the time.
A friend on a forum recommended switching to a web hosting account with cPanel because of the powerful email filters. I’d be able to stop the messages right there on the server before they ever download to my computer. Worked like a charm. Other control panels like vDeck have email filtering, but vDeck filters your entire account. You can’t filter on single domains. I host multiple domains on my account and email filtering is not just for spam. It can be used for setting up other filters, ones that a webmaster may not want to apply globally to all domains on the accout.
cPanel has CRON. Some popular hosting companies that use vDeck charge extra for CRON. CRON comes free with your WebHostingHub account. So what is it? It’s a script scheduler that allows you to set up jobs to run at specific times that you’d have to normally run by hand. It could be a script that needs to be run several times a day, nightly or at month-end. For as many seconds as there are on a clock, a CRON job can be setup. There are also some plugins for WordPress that require the use CRON jobs.
Ever wonder how people find your website when they search for something on the search engines or how many visitors you site’s getting and where they’re coming from? cPanel has Webalizer, AWStats, plus a few others that will give you all kinds of information about your sites. It makes it super easy for business owners and affiliate marketers to leverage the keyword phrases being used to find information on your site. Give people what they want and more will come.
If you have a need to redirect an entire domain name or just a page or two to some other site or page, creating a URL redirect should be as easy as entering the URL you want to redirect and the URL you want to redirect it to. In cPanel, it’s exactly just that easy, but not in vDeck. vDeck uses something called the Domain Pointing Manager that is soooo convoluted in terminology that no newbie would be able to figure it out, much less an experienced webmaster. Seriously. I was afraid to do it for fear I would redirect my entire site, not just a single page. cPanel redirects are easy to do.
