Cpanel Hosting Overview

Posted 10th November, 2021

cPanel is a popular Linux hosting control panel that is used by many hosting providers worldwide. Often, it is included with the web hosting package. However, there are cases where you need to get a separate subscription in order to get cPanel. cPanel uses a graphical interface that simplifies the management of a site greatly. It displays key metrics about the performance of your server, and it allows you to access a range of modules such as Preferences, Files, Databases, Web Applications, Security, Metrics, Domains, Software, Email, and Advanced Modules.

In order to administer your website hosting with us, we provide the cPanel control panel. You can execute the most common hosting tasks with just a few clicks, thanks to this graphical interface.

You can log into your cPanel control panel by doing the following two things. First, you can log in directly into cPanel using https://yourdomain.com/cpanel. To log into, all you need is your username and password for cPanel. If you’re having trouble and you want to reset your password, reach out to us, and we will immediately assist you.

Second, you can log into your client area, then navigate to Hosting Accounts, click the Account, and then log in to cPanel. Now that we’ve gone through the ways to log into cPanel, we’re going to get you started off with the basics of cPanel.

Installing Software

You can install the software in the following two ways. You can install your software manually by following their guides for installation, or you can use our auto-installers, which are recommended for most open-source platforms such as Magento, Joomla, and WordPress.

Databases

The data for most applications is stored in databases. For instance, WordPress uses both databases and files. You can create unlimited databases by adding them manually or using auto-install software.

Uploading and Managing Files

The files of your website run out of a folder called public_html, and there are several ways that you can manage files. Some advanced users use SSH, while others use sftp or ftp through a file management application like FileZilla or use the inbuilt file manager.

SSL Certificates

At Verpex, with every hosting account, we provide free SSL certificates. In most cases, renewal and provisioning are completely automated, and you don’t need to do anything in regards to the SSL certificates.

Email Accounts

Every Verpex hosting account allows you to create email accounts. The emails can be set up to forward somewhere else, or they can be full mailboxes. Alternatively, MX records can be set up in order to point email to an external provider such as Office 365 or Google Gsuite.

Optimization and Performance

Verpex Hosting is set up to minimize potential issues or downtime and to run your website quickly. We set it up by default to run the greatest number of sites in the best manner. However, you can do some optimizations to make sure that a certain site loads quickly from your end as well, such as changing the PHP version.
