VPS hosting is an excellent option for people who want to run multiple websites on a single server and those who need more storage space. It’s a no-brainer when it comes to hosting a big website or one with many subdomains. Sites can be more easily monitored and managed with the help of control panels. There would be no one else to take care of their server or servers if there was not one.
First, let’s understand what a VPS is?
Your website’s data and files are stored on a server, which is a powerful computer. In addition, search engines use powerful computers to “serve up” your website to the user’s browser.
This is where things become a little more technical: Virtual Private Servers (VPS) use virtualization technology to create several virtual servers from a single powerful server. So essentially, you have one piece of hardware that performs the duties of numerous other servers.
The meaning of the word “private” is self-explanatory. You won’t have to share RAM, CPU, or other data on your virtual server because it is exclusively yours.
How does a VPS work?
Although you’re still sharing the server with other customers, VPS Hosting gives you the feeling of a dedicated server. Virtualization technology creates a virtual layer on top of the server’s operating system (OS). This layer lets each user install their OS and software by dividing the server into separate compartments and separating them with virtual walls.
As a true private server, a virtual private server (VPS) keeps all of your files distinct from those of other users at the operating system level. As a result, you can rest sure that your website is safe and secure in the knowledge that it has access to all of the server resources it needs to run. But, of course, you can keep it to yourself if you don’t want to.
Now, for the most crucial part, Why control panel?
Cpanel is one of the most popular control panels on the market. In addition, a control panel called WHM, or Webhost Manager, manages multiple web hosting accounts.
You’ll probably need some control panel to help you run your business. There is no need to use a control panel to run a web server and run websites if you want. The administration can be done through the command line, scripts, and connection tools like SSH. It’s not that we don’t know how to do that. We prefer the efficiency and simplicity of an exemplary control panel. A control panel is faster and easier than more complicated ways for many things. You’ll need a control panel if you’re going to sell hosting accounts to other people, and most people will want one.
The important point about the control panel-
When looking at control panels, one thing to think about is how many people use them.
The more popular something is, the easier it is to find information about it on the Internet. You can also use it to get help with something you want to do. If there are many users, they’re likely to report problems with a new version as soon as possible. This way, the issues can be fixed quickly.
It is the most popular web hosting control panel globally, with about 70% of the market share in the United States. That means there are a lot of web hosts to choose from, as well as a lot of tutorials and forums on the Internet where people can get help from each other.
cPanel is used to manage a single website, but for VPS accounts, it comes with WHM (Web Host Manager), which manages a server and a group of people who work for them.
When you use WHM, you can easily set up your server and manage multiple client hosting accounts simultaneously. cPanel/WHM has graphical, web-based screens that can do both simple and complicated things.
What does WHM do?
WHM lets you quickly set up client hosting accounts, make hosting packages with limited bandwidth and disc space, and set the features shared hosting accounts can use.
WHM on a VPS lets you not only make shared hosting accounts, like with a reseller account, but you can also make and sell reseller accounts, too. It also helps you set up the VPS the same way you would a dedicated server. For example, the WHM interface makes it easy to set up a server hostname, assign IP addresses and name servers, and set up the mail server.
If the control panel you choose for your VPS is rigid for your customers to use, it doesn’t matter what you do with your VPS. You don’t want to spend more money on support because of a bad end-user interface. That’s where cPanel shines, as many new website owners will tell you. Beginners can use cPanel because it is easy to use and has a lot of tutorials and help files for them.
CPanel is still being worked on and getting new features all the time. Updates fix bugs, improve security, and add new features. As a VPS customer, you won’t have to worry about those updates because your host will do them.
- There are two cPanel features that will be useful to you and your hosting clients. Webmail and statistics are two of them. CPanel already has three webmail apps installed and running, so you don’t have to do anything. In addition, there are many webmail apps that you and your clients can use to get your mail from the server through any web browser.
- Statistics include the well-known AWstats, which keeps track of all website visits. For example, AWstats can show how many unique visitors came to the site, how many came from a particular country, and what search terms they used to find your site through search engines like Google. AWstats is shown in various easy-to-read ways, such as running totals and graphical charts.
- One of my favorite things about cPanel is that I can log in with my reseller or VPS password and quickly switch to the cPanel for any of my client sites with one click. Password: The same one used to log into WHM is also used for logging into cPanel. This makes it kind of like a “master password.” You can jump to any of your client sites in the control panel. That single login makes it easier for us resellers, or anyone who manages many domains, to do their jobs.
CPanel helps you manage your VPS, saving you time and giving your hosting clients a popular, easy-to-use tool.
