WHAT IS cPANEL? Part 2

What Can You Do In cPanel?

There are lots of things you can do inside cPanel. Some are more common than others, while others are more granular and not something everyone will need. Below is a list of the most common features.

Web Application / Content Management System Installations

Some of the most common features are the CMS and Web app installers. These include installers for CMS like WordPress, Joomla among others. With the help of tools like Softaculous, you can use cPanel to install lots of different web applications that will help build and manage your website.

Managing Domains

Inside cPanel, you can manage all your domains and subdomains. The domain manager lets you do the following actions:

  • Add new domains
  • Create subdomains
  • Add parked domains
  • Manage domains
  • Protect domain IDs
  • Edit DNS zones

CMS Tools

Depending on what CMS you are using, cPanel offers tools specific to it. These include things like WordPress auto-installers, staging sites, migration tools, and cache controls. Depending on the hosting service, there are tools for other CMS like Joomla, etc. Depending on the hosting service, there will be different CMS tools available to you.

Email Addresses and Webmail

cPanel is where all new email addresses are added and managed. From here you can control passwords, storage capacities, forwarding functions, and POP controls to add emails to your office productivity suite.

File Manager

With cPanel you can also control the files within each domain you manage. Through the file manager, you can access your home directory, your web root directory, the public FTP root directory, and document root directory. Inside the file manager, you can also choose to see the hidden files that give you access to files like .htaccess.

Everything inside your sites is inside the file manager. You can access it all by choosing the domain you want to look at specifically or look at it globally and navigate from there.

PHP Controls

The cPanel is also the place where you can add PHP extensions or change PHP settings like image upload size and memory limit.

Creating and Managing Backups

Backup management is an important aspect of web management. cPanel makes it easy to handle. Some CMS tools inside the dashboard have backup management systems, but you can also do it straight through cPanel with the backup tool.

Security Features

Through cPanel you can manage your security metrics for your different domains. Add encrypt features to make a domain safe with https, add password protection to the file directories, and manage the IP address deny features. Use the cPanel security features to do a security check on any of your sites and domains.

Managing Databases

You can also manage your databases with cPanel. With the database feature, you can manage your MyQSL databases, PHP databases and any other database you might have depending on your CMS.

Visitor Metrics

In some cases, you can also access visitor metrics analytics through cPanel. This will depend on your host server and what applications you use with cPanel if it’s on dedicated hosting.
