cPanel Dedicated Server was last modified: February 8th, 2016 by Colocation American Staff
The cPanel server software was built to provide a simple to use GUI interface for web hosting servers. It is the No. 1 web-based control panel among most of the hosting companies and provides shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting.
Built by John Nick Koston, cPanel is based on the Linux operating system and simplifies that process of using a dedicated server through its web hosting control panel. Don’t worry, cPanel will also work on other operating systems like BSD or Windows.
cPanel web hosting provides built in automation tools that can easily configure server resources and files for easy server management. Everything is mapped out and set up in an easy-to-understand graphical structure for cPanel users.
Intuitively, server administrative tasks, resellers, and end-users can set up server resources and control their websites through a simple web browser. Additionally, developers and web hosting and software vendors can automate any standard system administration process through the cPanel command line and Application Program Interface (API).
cPanel can be used in most Linux dedicated servers—and is the number one pick among web hosting control panels.
Webhosting with cPanel gives the server administrator a huge list of tools to create and control dedicated servers. Some features that will make your cPanel server management easier are as followed:
cPanel supports a wide variety of popular web-based applications like phpBB forums, osCommerce online stores, and WordPress Blogs. There are also a number of useful web applications for cPanel.
The Backup Wizard tool allows webmasters to manage and backup their web hosting accounts through an easy to use interface. Webmasters are also protected from other websites using their bandwidth and can set up password protected areas to restricted areas of their website.

cPanel also provides website information for webmasters that wants to see the amount of traffic or their web statistics. Professional website developers can use cPanel to view the PHP configuration of the dedicated server.
A website’s content is what drives traffic to the website. Without new and unique content on the website there would be no visitors and the website would get no views.
Web Hosting with cPanel, i.e. managing and adding new content, is an easy task, as website owners have several options to choose how to do it.
Webmasters can upload the files to the cPanel’s File Manager that will uploaded the content onto their web page.
cPanel also has a tool called Web Disk that allows webmasters to drag and drop files into their accounts for quick uploads.
cPanel also supports FTP uploads through the standard FTP protocols (FTP, SFTP, FTPS) and enable webmasters to create separate FTP accounts for their employees.
cPanel reseller hosting is a simple, inexpensive way to sell and resell white-label reseller accounts—i.e. you can purchase hosting space from a hosting provider and then resell that hosting space to your customers.
According to cPanel.net:
“You can setup your own nameservers, replace the cPanel logo with your own logo and branding, and completely customize the appearance of cPanel using our Branding Editor and some creative CSS. You can also integrate your own payment system to provide a fully branded and customized experience.”
cPanel reseller hosting allows you to focus more on your customers rather than wasting time and money on server administration.
POP, IMAP, and SMTP (with or without SSL encryption) are all mail protocols supported by cPanel.
Webmasters can create their own email account that is associated with their website for a more business standard email address. Webmasters can also access their emails using a variety of web interface devices or any type of web browsers.
cPanel supports email forwarding, filtering, and spam protection (SpamAssassin, BoxTrapper).
