Control Panel (cPanel/WHM)

cPanel and WHM

The cPanel® & WHM® software package is an easy-to-use control panel that replaces tedious command-line tasks with an intuitive web-based interface that helps website owners and hosting providers accomplish essential tasks quickly and reliably.

WHM and cPanel work together to allow you to administer your VPS.

  • WHM is the back-end management interface for the entire VPS and is reserved for the super-user (root), and in some cases, reseller accounts. It is the software you’ll use to add domains to your system and customize various aspects of your VPS.
  • cPanel is the front-end interface you’ll use for anything specific to a particular domain name. Within cPanel, you can create email addresses for your domain, manage your files, create databases, and view web logs and statistics.

For each new domain you create within WHM, a corresponding cPanel account is generated. For example, if you wanted to host five different domains, you would create the domains in WHM and end up with five separate cPanel accounts. You will then log into each domain individually in cPanel to easily customize your domains while keeping them separate and organized.

cPanel & WHM are ServInt’s supported control panel option for all Cloud VPS and Dedicated and Flex VPS and Dedicated products.

Website Owners:

cPanel software for website owners provides one of the world’s most familiar user interfaces for managing a website. Using cPanel software, website owners can easily manage their email accounts, databases, applications, security, FTP — and control every aspect of their websites.

Hosting Resellers:

cPanel & WHM software provides the necessary tools to automate your business and is incredibly easy to use, saving you time and money. Customer satisfaction and retention, as well as an increased opportunity for business growth, are benefits of using cPanel & WHM.

A flexible API, access to 100s of applications and built-in configurations like EasyApache, allow hosting providers that use cPanel & WHM software to fully customize the control panel to meet the needs of various customers. This enables you to focus your time on your business and customers rather than tackling the chore of maintaining daily server tasks.
