Hepsia versus cPanel

cPanel is the most widely used hosting Control Panel nowadays. But that does not mean that it is the best - it has a lot of faults and it has had them for such a long time that they are no longer considered weaknesses by most users. But only because something was okay in the year 2000 doesn't mean that the same thing will be OK now.

Here are the most essential distinctions between the cPanel Control Panel and the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel:


 

1. Domain/billing/website controls

With Hepsia, you can manage your website, domain name and billing with ease, from a one location.
With cPanel, you have two different Control Panel interfaces - one for your website and another one for your invoices and domain names.

2. File structure

With Hepsia, each domain has its own independent folder.
With cPanel, you have one principal domain folder and all other add-on domain names are located inside it.

3. File Manager

With the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can take advantage of drag 'n' drop file upload right into the File Manager. It also supports archive/unarchive functions and right-click contextual menus.
After some recent updates, cPanel's File Manager performs and looks much better. Still, it offers neither drag-and-drop file upload functionality, nor archive/unarchive functions.

4. Free bonuses

With Hepsia, you receive multiple free-of-charge extras.
With cPanel, the free-of-cost bonuses you obtain depend on the web hosting plans provider, which means that you can also get a bare-bones cPanel with nothing else.

5. Control Panel speed

Tests have shown that the Hepsia hosting CP is 3 to 5 times faster than the cPanel web hosting CP.
While with the The cPanel web hosting Control Panel you do your work in time, it's built on concepts from the year 2000 and can be slow at times.

6. Mutli-domain controls

Administering ten different sites with Hepsia is not harder than managing 1 or 2 websites.
Hosting more than ten sites under one single cPanel hosting account is really difficult.

7. Control Panel navigation

The Hepsia CP lists just the most important sections on the home page and you can navigate using drop-down menus available in all of the sections.
the cPanel web hosting CP displays all available icons on the home page. To navigate between sections, you invariably have to return there.

8. Demo accounts

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel features a fully fledged demo version with only a few functions disabled. You can even set up a complete site and check how it looks like prior to deciding whether or not to register.
The cPanel web hosting CP offers a stripped-down demo version, which will only offer you a rough idea of what the cPanel CP can do.

This list can go on and on. But rather than merely reading about these hosting Control Panels, why don't you give the Hepsia hosting Control Panel a try with our Live Demo and discover for yourself how easy website hosting can be?
