cPanel is primarily used with Linux web hosting and provides a graphical interface to control and maintain a web site. It contains several tools that simplify and automate many tasks that would otherwise take more time and require more intricate knowledge of the server operating system.
cPanel can be accessed in any web browser and controls functions ranging from virtual e-mail accounts to file management systems. With cPanel hosting, there is never a need to download software and install it on a local computer or laptop. This means administrators can manage and configure servers from any computer without having to worry about operating system or configuration files. Any administrator or developer can make server changes or access critical information whether they are on a public Macintosh at the airport, a work computer, or a laptop at home.
A cPanel server automates and simplifies backups, migrates accounts from one server to another, and has the ability to shut down web sites. With cPanel hosting, you can automate backups instead of having to write scripts manually for each site. This will save time and programming costs, and allow you to create backups when your system is not under heavy utilization.
Migrating data from one cPanel dedicated server to another is an easy way to move a site from one server to another. The site can be packed up with all of its customized settings and uploaded to a new server where it will be restored in full working order. The migration process is important when your application outgrows your current hosting environment, it can easily be moved to a new more powerful server. cPanel servers for Linux allow web developers to migrate data quickly and easily.
