Not too long ago, the cPanel Control Panel seemed to be an unquestionable pioneer on the hosting marketplace. Its popularity grew so big that nowadays cPanel is an equivalent of Control Panel. Nonetheless, the cPanel Control Panel has been based on dated concepts and what worked great eight years ago is not valid currently.
For this reason, we engineered the Dashdot Hosting Control Panel, based on the concepts of nowadays and prepared for the challenges of the foreseeable future. It is meant to work in the cloud, to be user–friendly and to help you control every aspect of your web presence: website, domain and invoicing, all from a single location.
1. Domain/invoicing/web site controls
If you would like to maintain your domain names, websites and invoicing from one area without having to resort to any other panels, the Dashdot Hosting Control Panel is just for you.
Using the cPanel Control Panel, you will have to log into two separate Control Panel interfaces – a billing panel from which you deal with domain names and billing and the cPanel Control Panel from where you manage your web sites.
2. File Hierarchy
In the Dashdot Hosting Control Panel, all the websites and subdomains are going to be independent from each other. Each individual web site can have its very own directory segregated from the rest in the /home/ directory of your hosting account. You can easily change from focusing on one website to dealing with another.
Using the cPanel Control Panel, you’ve a single web hosting account for your main site and if you want to have other sites in the same web hosting account, they will be added as subfolders of your primary web site. This will make controlling several web sites truly confusing.
3. File Manager
The Dashdot Hosting File Manager is made to function just like your PC file explorer. Offering characteristics such as drag & drop file file publishing, right–click context menus, archive/unzip options, and so forth., it will make managing your data files quick and easy. And also, there is an inbuilt WYSIWYG manager together with a program code manager.
The File Manager offered in the cPanel Control Panel has been updated several times through the years, however it still does not present decent results in comparison to other online data file manipulation instruments. You are unable to employ a drag & drop functionality to publish data files, the archive/unzip tool may be difficult to rely on from time to time and also the file editing user interface is restricted in capabilities.
4. Freely available Add–ons
The cPanel Control Panel is distributed through a commercial license and add–on bonus tools are going to be incorporated for an extra fee. Because of this, even if your company gives no–charge benefits within the cPanel, their particular cost will be included in the price of your cloud hosting plan. In addition, the quantity and sort of zero–cost gifts will change from one host company to another.
5. Control Panel Performance Speeds
We have enhanced the Control Panel to operate perfectly with our equipment only. This makes it faster than alternative site management interfaces. We have also tweaked it to
make usage of the entire capacity of your Internet connection – the better your Internet access is, the quicker our website management interface works.
cPanel continues to be functioning on a platform from a decade ago and will truly be slow occasionally. The cPanel development team has made a substantial step with the roll–out of cPanel accelerated. Even so, in assessment tests, common web site management procedures often exhibit greater results with other Control Panels.
6. Multi–domain Control
The Dashdot Hosting Control Panel helps you easily control different sites and their domains from a single place. Each site is going to have its very own separate directory in the main directory of your web hosting account and will also be absolutely free from the rest. This way, you may use only one web hosting account to control as many domains and websites as you want.
If you try to accommodate multiple domains in a cPanel account, you will end up confronted with a quite complicated directory arrangement. In general, cPanel web hosting accounts are made to deal with only 1 domain name. In this manner, if you wish to work with ten domains simultaneously, for instance, you’ll need to configure 10 different accounts. Otherwise, all of the additional domain names’ content files will be found in the folder of the main domain name.
7. Control Panel Menu
With the Dashdot Hosting Control Panel, you will be able to promptly move from one section to another by using our handy top menu bar. It boasts links to every single area of the Control Panel and also a quick explanation of what exactly you’re able to do there. In this way, even if you do not understand what the particular section implies, you will have the capacity to quickly get acquainted with its capabilities.
On the cPanel home page, you will see icons for all areas of the Control Panel. As a result, even though you never use a section, you’ll still view it on the home page. Also, to move between the different sections, you have to browse straight back to the homepage and afterwards head to another section.
