What is cPanel?

cPanel is a web-based control panel for managing website hosting services. It provides a graphical user interface (GUI) and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a website. With cPanel, users can manage their website's files, databases, email accounts, and more, all from a single, easy-to-use platform.

cPanel was first released in 1996 and has since become one of the most popular control panel software for web hosting. It provides a wide range of features and tools, including:

  • File Management: Allows users to manage their website's files and directories, including uploads, backups, and restores.
  • Database Management: Provides tools for managing databases, including creating and managing MySQL and PostgreSQL databases.
  • Email Management: Allows users to manage their email accounts, including creating email addresses, setting up email forwards, and configuring spam filters.
  • Domain Management: Provides tools for managing domain names, including registering new domains and managing DNS records.
  • Application Installer: Allows users to easily install and manage popular web applications, such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.


The new Jupiter

The cPanel interface features two distinct themes, Paper Lantern and Jupiter. While Paper Lantern offers a familiar look, Jupiter introduces a fresh appearance and includes two new pages - Tools and Solutions.  

The Tools page, which is the default page, is familiar to those who have used cPanel before. It organizes features into categories like Email, Domains, and Databases, and provides a right sidebar with important account information such as the IP address, home directory, username, and more. Additionally, users can find information specific to the server, such as software version numbers and path information, in the Server Information section. The Statistics section displays various statistics on resource usage, such as disk, database, and domain usage.  

The Solutions page is designed specifically for novice cPanel users. It offers tutorials on common tasks like setting up an email account and building a website, as well as FAQs and links to documentation resources to help users quickly find answers to their questions.
