Hepsia versus cPanel

cPanel is the most widely used Control Panel nowadays. But that does not mean that it is the best - it has a lot of imperfections and it has had them for so long that they are no longer regarded as imperfections by most people. But only because something was OK in the year 2000 doesn't mean that the same thing will be okay now.

Here are the most critical distinctions between the cPanel Control Panel and the Hepsia hosting Control Panel:


 

1. Domain/billing/website controls

With Hepsia, you can administer your site, domain name and billing easily, from a one place.
With cPanel, you have two separate Control Panel tools - one for your site and another one for your invoices and domains.

2. File structure

With Hepsia, each domain has its own independent folder.
With cPanel, you have 1 principal domain name folder and all other add-on domains are located inside it.

3. File Manager

With the Hepsia Control Panel, you can take advantage of drag-and-drop file upload directly in the File Manager. It also supports archive/unarchive options and right-click contextual menus.
After certain recent updates, cPanel's File Manager performs and looks much better. Still, it offers neither drag-and-drop file upload support, nor archive/unarchive functions.

4. Free bonuses

With Hepsia, you receive a plethora of free bonuses.
With cPanel, the free-of-charge bonuses you get depend on the hosting plans provider, which implies that you can also obtain a bare-bones cPanel with nothing else.

5. Control Panel speed

Tests have shown that the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is three to five times faster than the cPanel CP.
While with the cPanel you can get the job done, it's designed on concepts from the year 2000 and can be slow at times.

6. Mutli-domain controls

Administering 10 separate sites with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is as difficult as administering one or two sites.
Hosting more than ten sites under a single cPanel hosting account is indeed difficult.

7. Control Panel navigation

The Hepsia web hosting CP lists only the most important sections on the home page and you can navigate using drop-down menus available in all of the sections.
The cPanel hosting Control Panel displays all available icons on the home page. To navigate between sections, you constantly need to return there.

8. Demo accounts

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel features a full-fledged demo account with only a couple of functions disabled. You can even create an entire website and see how it looks like before deciding whether or not to open an account.
The cPanel CP features a stripped-down demo version, which will only give you a crude idea of what the cPanel web hosting CP can do.

This list can carry on and on. But instead of simply reading about these web hosting Control Panels, why don't you give the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel a shot with our Live Demo and see for yourself how easy web hosting can be?
