What is cPanel?
cPanel is a web based hosting control panel provided by hosting providers to website owners allowing them to manage their websites from a web based interface.
Without cPanel, you would need technical knowledge to manage your websites/server. But with cPanel, you’re able to make changes using a graphical interface – no technical knowledge required.
