Some time ago, the cPanel Control Panel seemed to be an undisputed leader on the website hosting marketplace. Its popularity grew so big that nowadays cPanel is an analogue of Control Panel. Still, the cPanel Control Panel has been constructed on obsolete ideas and what worked well a few years ago is just not valid presently.
That is why, we came up with the SMN Hosting Control Panel, built around the ideas of nowadays and geared up for the circumstances of tomorrow. It is built to perform in the cloud, to always be straightforward and to let you control every aspect of your web presence: website, domain name and invoicing, all from a single place.
1. Domain name/invoicing/website settings
If you want to control your domain names, sites and payments from a single area without the need to utilize any extra interfaces, the SMN Hosting Control Panel is exactly what you need.
If you require separate Control Panel tools – one for your websites, and another from where you can handle your domains and payments, then cPanel is for you. However, you will have to sign into 2 URLs at the same time to effectively handle your web presence.
2. File Structure
With the SMN Hosting Control Panel, all your web sites and subdomains are going to be free from one another. Each site is going to have its very own directory separated from the rest within the main folder of your hosting account. You can quickly switch from concentrating on one site to maintaining another.
If you attempt to look after a number of websites from one cPanel web hosting account, it could be quite a bit confusing. You have just one main website and all other websites and subdomains are going to be incorporated into its directory as sub–folders. If you need to have a separate directory for each individual site, you will need to log into different Control Panels for each of them.
3. File Manager
Using the File Manager of the SMN Hosting Control Panel, you’ll get 100% control over the contents of your sites. You will be able to quickly add new files using drag–n–drop capability, successfully change a number of files at a time through the multi–selection option, unzip archives with a click of the mouse, change files with the inbuilt generic and WYSWYG managers and many more.
The cPanel’s File Manager will provide you with limited control over your files and folders. You’ll have trouble adding multiple files at a time and won’t have the capacity to drag and drop files because this capability isn’t supported. A zip/unarchive functionality is just not supported either. File updating applications are also limited.
4. Zero–cost Gifts
The cPanel Control Panel is offered by way of a paid license and extra gifts are going to be included at an additional fee. As a result, even if your service provider features free–of–cost extras inside the cPanel, their cost is going to be included in the final price of your web hosting offer. Furthermore, the amount and type of 100–percent–free bonus features will vary from one hosting company to another.
5. Control Panel Tool Rates of Operation
The SMN Hosting Control Panel runs using our very own website hosting. It’s improved to work on our setup of equipment components and also to function with our collection of software tools. This makes it run faster when compared with any other Control Panel solution available on the market. And it is safer in terms of performance too.
cPane is compiled to be operating on a wide array of platforms using numerous equipment setups. This means that, it’s not completely optimized to work with a certain system, which could have compromising influence on speed and stability. In addition, It can be even slower at times of intensive web server load.
6. Multi–domain name Management
Using the SMN Hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to manage a lot of domains and websites from one location. Moving between domain name administration and web site management is performed just by going to a different section of the Control Panel. It’s not necessary to sign into a different web address to control your web site.
If you try to accommodate multiple domain names in a cPanel web hosting account, you’ll end up confronted with a very difficult folder hierarchy. By default, cPanel web hosting accounts are designed to handle a single domain name. This way, if you have to work with 10 domain names concurrently, for instance, you will need to create ten different accounts. Otherwise, all of the extra domain names’ content files will be based in the folder of the primary domain.
7. Control Panel Menu
The SMN Hosting Control Panel is really straightforward to navigate. You’ll find a helpful top navigation bar, through which you can get to virtually any section of the Control Panel, without needing to get back to the main page every time. Plus, we have incorporated a quick stats module on the home page, so any time you log in, you can have a glance at how many site visitors have arrived at your website.
The cPanel Control Panel offers all icons in the homepage, meaning that it’s not designed to your own requirements. Moreover, once you access a menu, you are not able to instantly switch to another one and will have to go back to the home page alternatively. This sort of navigation can be quite bothersome for you, particularly if you implement a lot of Control Panel sections each time you edit your websites.
8. Test Control Panel Accounts
The SMN Hosting Control Panel provides a full–fledged demo website hosting account. All sections are offered to you and you are able to use them to create brand new email accounts and databases, handle your files, etc. If you like exactly how things stand, you are able to join us right from the demo account.
Through the demo web hosting account of the cPanel Control Panel, you’re able to only become familiar with look of the user interface. Almost all features are unavailable and you can’t in reality get past the home page. With many hosting vendors, you’ll be granted ability to access a generic cPanel demo account, and won’t have the option to see the Control Panel you will in fact be making use of to handle your sites if you sign up.
We could include just about every function of our Hosting Control Panel here and evaluate it against the cPanel Control Panel. However, it’ll be easier if you simply take a peek at our live demo version and discover the difference on your own.
