cPanel hosting gives website owners a wide variety of options and a high level of control, all with an easy-to-use and approachable user interface. If you’re a web developer looking for a deeper level of information and control than simple content management systems or website templates, cPanel web server hosting is an excellent option for you to consider.

cPanel offers access and control over the following site elements:

  • The site’s attached email accounts, including autoresponders, filtering, email authentications, and spam filters
  • The privacy and security options such as banned IPs, password protection for directories and files, and several other built-in security features
  • Domain management like subdomains, parked domains, addon domains, and redirects

cPanel web hosting also offers the user a wide variety of third-party apps – of which there are plenty, considering that it’s been consistently used since 1997.

Other prominent features of this system include easily accessed, modified, and managed files, a straightforward file browser, and site statistic logging. With these, you’ll be able to not only control the files you put up for the world to see but also view the data of the users who work with those files.

Besides the features above, cPanel gives webmasters control over their data and content via MySQL and PostgreSQL database management. User-created and user-submitted content is often one of the main factors in developing a website that keeps users coming back repeatedly, and direct database management through cPanel is a highly useful feature of our hosting service.

Start by following the simple instructions you receive to access your site’s cPanel main page. From there, an easy-to-use search feature and a clear, efficient, and pleasant presentation ensure you’ll find the services you’re looking for as quickly as possible. You can also follow our cPanel Tutorial.

If you ever run into any problems or issues, you can seek help from the massive archive of discussions relating to cPanel online. Since it is such a well-established piece of software, your question or issue has almost certainly been encountered before, and you’ll be able to find a fix easily. Of course, you always have access to A2 Hosting’s 24/7/365 support team as well!

Besides this basic functionality, cPanel offers its users access to many third-party apps that can automate tedious, repetitive processes and expand upon cPanel’s already versatile capabilities. You’ll be able to customize cPanel to show only the information you need, ensuring that you can spend the bulk of your time on the website itself rather than back-end features that users will never see.

Choosing cPanel Hosting offers ease and flexibility in managing your website. Renowned for its reliability, cPanel simplifies web management by providing a suite of powerful tools through an intuitive, easy-to-navigate interface. It grants you, the website owner, comprehensive control over every aspect of your site – from deep database management to the finer points of your site’s aesthetics. You also have the freedom to dive into the technical details or use external applications for assistance, all while maintaining ultimate oversight.

Opting for cPanel means choosing autonomy for your web projects. Your site remains entirely under your control, allowing you to engage with its content and design as intensively or minimally as you prefer. Focus your efforts where they matter most to you without being obligated to master complex software just to perform basic tasks. Unlike other web management platforms that demand a steep learning curve for simple operations, cPanel’s user-friendly design and graphical interface let you execute your plans efficiently without constant reference to guides or forums.

We offer the fastest hosting services at some of the lowest prices available! We are a cPanel host that offers SSD hosting, providing a massive boost to your site’s speed, as well as several available data centers, ensuring that you’re not sending content around the world and back again to reach local users.

While you can use the Site Publisher to design your permanent site, it’s also a great tool for generating a temporary site.

  • Domains – Create new domains, manage your domains, and set up email!
  • Addon Domains – The perfect way to host additional domains on your account.

  • Email Deliverability – Use this tool to find any issues with your email-related DNS records for each domain. The system uses your records to ensure other servers can trust it as the sender.

A2 Hosting takes security seriously! In fact, we have our own exclusive Perpetual Security features that are always running on your account. Below is a breakdown of the security features included in cPanel, as a part of our Perpetual Security initiative.

  • AutoInstall SSL – Did you buy an SSL Certificate from A2 Hosting? Our AutoInstall SSL feature offers you the quickest and easiest SSL installation. The AutoInstall SSL will generate your Certificate Signing Request (CSR), install your certificate, and verify that the installation has been completed.
  • SSH Access – Secure Socket Shell (SSH) provides secure file transfers and remote logins through your internet connection. Use the SSH Access feature in cPanel to manage your SSH Keys, which are used during the authentication process.
  • IP Blocker – Designate specific IP addresses you do not want accessing your site.
  • SSL/TLS – Create, view, and upload your private keys, Certificate Signing Requests (CSR), and SSL Certificates.
  • SSL/TLS Status – View the SSL status for each domain.
  • Hotlink Protection – Prevents users from directly linking to your site’s files. For example, this would prevent someone from displaying an image from your site on their own site using an tag. This feature ultimately helps you save and maximize your account’s bandwidth.
  • Leech Protection – Stops your account’s users from sharing or posting their passwords to your site. Any accounts that have been compromised can be redirected to a URL of your choosing.
  • Two-Factor Authentication – An excellent way to prevent unauthorized access to your account. With Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), not only do you need your password to log into your account, but a unique passcode will be generated on the smart device of your choosing when logging in. That passcode will also need to be entered to access your account. That means even if your password is compromised, unauthorized account access will be prevented because the malicious user will not be able to generate and enter a unique passcode from your smart device.

Yes, cPanel is an excellent choice for hosting, as it is easy to use and provides a comprehensive set of tools for website and server management. Its intuitive graphical interface and automation tools make it simple to manage domains, emails, databases, and much more.

At A2 Hosting, we leverage cPanel’s capabilities to enhance our hosting services. We offer features like the A2 Optimized tool that ensures optimal performance and security settings for various applications, making it a top pick for anyone building a website, no matter how experienced they are.

While cPanel itself is a paid software, many hosting providers, including A2 Hosting, bundle it with their hosting plans without any additional cost to the user. This effectively makes cPanel free for the end-user within the context of a hosting package.

A2 Hosting incorporates cPanel into all of our plans, such as the Shared Web Hosting and Managed VPS Hosting, ensuring customers have access to this powerful control panel as part of their service package.

No, you can’t get paid or free web hosting with cPanel, as that is just the control panel software web hosting providers use to give customers a user-friendly way to manage their websites, set up email accounts and databases, and install web applications.

However, if you purchase a hosting plan from A2, you get free cPanel with it, so it makes more sense to look for similar plans instead of buying a separate cPanel license. This partnership between cPanel and hosting providers facilitates a smoother, more accessible web hosting experience for users.

The cost of hosting a website with cPanel depends on the hosting plan and provider you choose. A2 Hosting, for example, offers a range of cPanel hosting options tailored to different needs and budgets. Shared Hosting plans with cPanel start at a low monthly fee, offering a cost-effective solution for small websites and blogs.

For larger sites requiring more resources, A2’s Managed VPS or Dedicated Server plans include cPanel and provide greater power and flexibility. The specific price points vary, reflecting the diversity in hosting needs and the comprehensive features and support of A2 Website Hosting plans.
