cPanel/WHM

One of the most popular hosting control panels in the United States is cPanel/WHM. We write it as cPanel/WHM because this hosting control panel basically has two parts: an interface used by users called cPanel, and the part that actually manages the server – WHM.

Note that cPanel runs on Linux, not Windows. However, cPanel does support a wide range of Linux distributions including RedHat Enterprise, CloudLinux as well as the popular CentOS. You can manage your hosting environment using both the cPanel GUI as well as command-line, while there’s also the option to use the cPanel API for further automation.

People who host websites and third-party software developers can automate many sysadmin processes thanks to cPanel’s flexibility. Further points that make cPanel worth considering include the fact that it generally facilitates high levels of overall system performance.

The command-line utilities for cPanel are a benefit too, while people also like that it support SNI and AutoSSL alongside DNSSEC and Power DNS. Finally, cPanel interfaces to PHP-FPM, EasyApache and CSF/LTD making it a very versatile hosting control panel.
