Hosting a web site can seem like a daunting task, especially to beginners. However, with web hosting by EUKHost, you will find your job made a lot easier by a versatile piece of software called cPanel.
cPanel (short for ‘Control Panel’) is a software package that runs in your web browser. This programme acts as the perfect intermediary between you and your site. It enables you to control all aspects of your website, from uploading new or revised content, to reviewing site usage statistics.
It’s a good idea, in the early days of hosting your site, to take some time out to familiarise yourself with the key features of cPanel – otherwise you could miss out on components that could make your job a lot easier in the long run.
First, there are some invaluable facilities for the management of the email boxes that come with your best web hosting package from EUKHost. These include the ability to set up an unlimited number of Pop3 email accounts, an email forwarding service and Spam Assassin to help you reduce the number of unwanted emails.
In terms of site management, there’s an enviable range of features, including: a file manager, meaning you can drag and drop files on to the site from your client computer; an FTP manager, for the transfer of files using File Transfer Protocol software; and support for Microsoft Front Page server extensions. Although Front Page is now legacy software, many sites which were authored in it still require the server extensions to function.
Furthermore, cPanel enables you to create additional useful applications that can run on your site. For instance, you can easily set up an e-commerce facility, as well as a user forum.
