Hepsia versus Cpanel
cPanel is the most famous web hosting Control Panel these days. But that does not mean that it is the best – it has numerous weaknesses and it has had them for such a long time that they are no longer considered faults by most people. But only because something was OK in the year 2000 doesn’t mean that the same thing will be OK nowadays.
Here are the most crucial differences between the cPanel Control Panel and the Hepsia Control Panel:
With Hepsia, you can manage your website, domain and billing easily, from a one single location.
With cPanel, you have 2 separate Control Panels – one for your website and another one for your invoices and domains.
With Hepsia, each domain has its own independent folder.
With cPanel, you have 1 principal domain folder and all other add-on domain names are located inside it.
With the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you can use drag ‘n’ drop file upload right into the File Manager. It also supports archive/unarchive functions and right-click context menus.
After certain recent updates, cPanel‘s File Manager performs and looks much better. Still, it offers neither drag ‘n’ drop file upload functionality, nor archive/unarchive functions.
With Hepsia, you get a myriad of free-of-charge extras.
With cPanel, the free-of-charge bonuses you obtain depend on the hosting services provider, which implies that you can also get a stripped-down cPanel with nothing else.
Tests have revealed that Hepsia is three to five times faster than the cPanel Control Panel.
While with the The cPanel web hosting CP you can get the job done, it’s based on concepts from the year 2000 and can be slow at times.
Managing 10 separate sites with the Hepsia hosting CP is not harder than administering one or two sites.
Hosting 10+ websites in one single cPanel web hosting account is indeed hard.
The Hepsia Control Panel lists just the most important sections on the home page and you can navigate using drop-down menus available in all of the sections.
cPanel shows all available icons on the home page. To navigate between sections, you constantly need to return there.
The Hepsia web hosting CP offers a full-fledged demo account with only several functions disabled. You can even build a whole web site and check how it looks like before deciding whether or not to open an account.
The cPanel hosting CP offers a bare-bones demo, which will only offer you a basic idea of what the cPanel Control Panel can do.
