The Digital Steer Web Hosting Control Panel has been designed to deliver enhancements to the prevalent website administration user interface. The prior Control Panel front runner – cPanel, was developed more than ten years ago and has not yet experienced an essential upgrade ever since. The Digital Steer Web Hosting Control Panel is based on the concepts of the present day, carrying ease of use and intuitiveness to all web–site managing duties you can imagine.
Go down and do a comparison of the 2 main Control Panel solutions, learn more about their advantages and drawbacks and find out which will meet your needs best.
1. Domain name/invoicing/web site adjustments
With the Digital Steer Web Hosting Control Panel you’ll be able to manage all of your web sites, domain names and e–mail messages within exactly the same place. You do not have to rely on any other billing or domain interfaces.
Using the cPanel Control Panel, you need to log in two separate site management tools – an invoicing panel from which you handle domains and billing and the cPanel Control Panel from where you maintain your websites.
2. File Arrangement
Managing multiple domain names and websites from a single website hosting account has to be simple and easy. In the Digital Steer Web Hosting Control Panel, every single domain name and subdomain is found in a standalone directory and is completely independent from the other.
With the cPanel Control Panel, you have a single directory for your primary web site and all additional websites are located within this directory. This would make maintaining numerous websites from a single interface very puzzling.
3. File Manager
The Digital Steer Web Hosting File Manager is designed to work exactly like your desktop computer file explorer. Offering capabilities like drag–n–drop file uploads, right click navigation menus, archive/unarchive options, and so on., it will make managing your data files quick and simple. Plus, there is also a built–in WYSIWYG interface together with a backend code editor.
The cPanel’s File Manager gives you limited control of your files and folders. You will have trouble adding a lot of files simultaneously and won’t be able to drag and drop files because this capability isn’t included. A zip/extract function is just not available either. File revising tools have also been reduced.
4. Free–of–charge Add–ons
Each website hosting company providing cPanel decides on its own precisely what free–of–cost extras to to incorporate into your hosting package. And also, since cPanel is a licensed Control Panel, the no–charge bonus tools should also be paid by the web hosting supplier. This will for sure raise the price of your web hosting package, so the free–of–charge gifts integrated in your plan will in fact be fee based.
5. Control Panel Operational Speed
The Digital Steer Web Hosting Control Panel works with our custom–built Linux shared hosting packages. It is optimized to operate on our setup of equipment components and to work using our collection of software programs. This makes it operate a lot faster as opposed to almost any other Control Panel on the market. And it’s more secure as well.
cPanel is still working on a platform from a decade ago and will truly be slow from time to time. The cPanel development team has carried out a significant step with the release of cPanel accelerated. Nevertheless, in evaluation experiments, common site managing functions typically exhibit better results with alternative Control Panels.
6. Multi–domain name Controls
With the Digital Steer Web Hosting Control Panel, you’ll be able to handle a variety of domain names and sites from a single location. Moving between domain name administration and web site administration is done simply by switching to a new section of the Control Panel. You do not have to log into a different web address to control your web site.
If you try to accommodate numerous domains in a cPanel hosting account, you’ll end up confronted with an extremely confusing directory arrangement. In general, cPanel hosting accounts are made to deal with only 1 domain name. In this way, in order to deal with 10 domains concurrently, for example, you’ll have to configure 10 separate accounts. Or else, all added domains’ data files will be located in the directory of the primary domain.
7. Control Panel Menu
Using the Digital Steer Web Hosting Control Panel, you will be able to instantly navigate from one section to another making use of our useful top navigation menu. It boasts links to each area of the Control Panel and also a quick description of what precisely you can do there.
