Web hosting as we all are aware of is a very popular field in internet world and it is very essential that services which would be availed from the web host provider is checked and understood. Factors like cost, technical support, customer support, maintenance, security are very important. But, the most important of all is hosting control panels through which a client manages and controls his/her website(s). It should be updated and convenient to use having automated facilities which would save you time and extra money as well.

Many of the webs hosting companies in a race to provide better technical support than other are coming up with new softwares in terms of control panel like cPanel, Plesk, Sphera, Helm, Enism etc which help the clients in managing their websites to the T according to their own preferences.

Control panel is the most vital part of the services offered by the web hosting company and the quality of control panel also helps in deciding the standard of the web hosting companies. However, control panel alone should not be taken as the only criteria for deciding upon particular web host.

Control panel handles the activities like opening up and managing FTP account, email creation, statistical report etc. Control panel also are divided in to categories depending upon the platforms on which they can function smoothly. These platforms are further classified in to panels for Windows only and Linux only. Control panels which can run of both the platforms are also in use and are available.

Helm is one such control panel widely used by the web host companies and therefore clients to manage and operate their websites. It can be run only on Windows platform only and it contains many easy to use features and one of the most prominent of all is the facility of availing billing data. Most of the control panels otherwise do not provide these facilities, excluding few like H- Sphere. Helm can be easily maintained and comes with a very standard interface.

cPanel is the best among all the control panels available and is also the one of the most commonly used control panel. It has many features which are attractive and because of these easy to use and friendly elements it provides to its clients, it is most popular. It is inexpensive and uses Linux only as its platform. It is very economical and the charges per month are just 20$ per server.

cPanel has the capability to function along with many operating system and it is called now due to its viability and quality, a next generation management software application and website configuration. The GUI or the Graphical User Interface is very easy going and friendly and overall one can say this control panel is feature rich.

cPanel allows you to manage your site completely giving you total control in managing email accounts or may be add or remove them. It also helps you in operating and handling MySQL databases.

Interworx is another very competitive control panel available for the Linux only platform with a very presentable interface and it even comes with a feature which allows you to keep a tab upon up streams and even down streams.

DirectAdmin is one of the very easy to use control panel and comes with many features and is expensive as well with only 10$/server cost per month. However, it needs a bit improvement in terms of its interface and features when compared with other control panels available for Linux only platforms.

It should be noted here that there is one disadvantage of the control panels which can run only on either Linux or Windows as the loose the clients with opposite base requirements.

Plesk is the answer to this solution and it is widely used by people in this business as it can run on both Windows as well as Linux, with equal viability. It is a bit more expensive than other control panels as it functions in both the platforms and provides the clients with much needed flexibility. It has interface which is similar to Windows XP in presentation and other helpful features like website builder tool etc work hand in hand with this control panel.

Thus, in final analysis one need to understand what are their own preferences and requirements and according to that, search for the web hosting services which would provide a control panel which suits your requirements. There are many other extra features which are provided in this competitive market by the web hosting companies like free domain names, website management softwares, applications, tools which should be looked for better value for your money.
