cPanel Hosting – What It Is And How It Works For You
One of the main features of CPanel is the QuickInstall addon that is an interface to allow users to easily install many web platforms such as:
- Blogs (WordPress)
- Content Management Systems (Joomla)
- Forums (phpBB)
- Shopping Carts (Zen Cart)
QuickInstall allows you to choose the platform you want to install and will create the required database and handle all the installation processes for you with only a minimal amount of input from you.
This makes installing a blog or content management system much easier since you do not have to create the database from scratch, develop the web site and connect it all together. QuickInstall does it all for you.
QuickInstall will also allow you to easily upgrade your installations to stay current with the latest versions (and security enhancements).
Most web hosts will offer CPanel (andQuickInstall ) to their users. Other alternatives are available, such as Plesk and DirectAdmin, but CPanel is the leading web hosting interface at this point in time.
There are many web hosts out there that feature CPanel and it is up to you to decide which web host to go with. No matter which host you choose, if your web host comes with CPanel you will have a great interface to work with to get your web site up and running as quickly as possible.
