For many of us C-Panel is what many of us have used for years. It has grown, been updated, twisted and conformed into the monster that it is today.
Kind of like how WordPress grew from a blogging tool to a website creator
Kind of like how Windows grew from a thing called DOS which was a text based interface, to the click, drag and now slide and tap user interface that it is today.
So the C-Panel graphic user interface sits on top of a Linux operating system.
It’s cool, incredibly powerful and I describe it as the server version of a V8 muscle car. But it comes at a cost which is a licence fee which you as the hirer of the place of where your website is hosted pay as part of your monthly or annual fee.
Enter the new kid on the block, something that in some ways is modeled off the C-Panel interface but it kinda looked at C-Panels good points and made sure the really annoying things that webmasters hate about C-Panel were never going to be an issue or appear in it.
Now if i was going to compare this OS to a car it would be a BMW i8
I’ve been using a VPS (virtual private server) version on this for over a year. At the peak I had over 1000 domains hosted on it.
Installing a WordPress site or any CMS is a breeze. As is setting up multiple email accounts on different domains.
Does it work well? It is fast, if you are reading this post on the https://www.stuffthatworks.news/blog then you are seeing it in action.
Why would you host on it as opposed to a C-Panel host? Well if speed, ease of use, local access, having the servers your website is located on at multiple points around the globe are a concern it’s is definitely worth considering. And the biggy of course…… price.
And the fact that the help desk response time in every situation that I have had to use it took 15 minutes or less..
So if you are based in the States and you can’t tear yourself away from a C-Panel i recommend and use In-motion Hosting
So Hepsia is the new kid on the block and definitely worth the look.
