cPanel is the industry standard control panel for web administration.  You may already know that, but you may not know why.
At Localnode, we offer first class hosting with cPanel. We chose cPanel because it’s superior software that we believe offers the best possible option for our clients. Here are some of the ways that cPanel makes website administration easier.

#1: User-Friendly Interface

One of the reasons that cPanel is popular is that it’s easy to use. cPanel has a simple user interface with:

  • Easy-to-recognise icons
  • Onscreen instructions for common tasks
  • A library of video tutorials

Professional web administrators love cPanel, but it’s also simple enough that people who self-administer their websites can do so with ease.

#2: Frequent Updates

cPanel is committed to providing top-notch service to all its web clients. The company is constantly working to improve its performance, and that’s a sign that they put users’ needs first.
Updates are released regularly. Installing the updates ensures that you’ll always have the best possible version of cPanel to administer your website.

#3: Rich Features

Web administrators want the ability to manage everything from one place, including things like email maintenance and security. cPanel has many valuable features that make web administration simple.
For example, cPanel has a top-of-the-line email management function. You can also use cPanel with your anti-virus software. In other words, it allows you to manage every aspect of web administration from one dashboard.

#4: Compatible with Browsers and Third-Party Software

One of the biggest advantages of using cPanel with first class hosting for web administration is its compatibility with the most widely-used web browsers. Whether you prefer Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari, you’ll be able to administer your site without difficulty using cPanel. It also works with mobile versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
cPanel also supports many third-party software add-ons, including popular plug-ins and apps to add features to your website. Of course, you should check for compatibility before installing anything on your site, but there’s a good chance that the software you choose will work with cPanel.

#5: Security

Every website administrator must be concerned with web security to protect their confidential data. Whether your company must comply with HIPAA or FACTA regulations or just want to ensure that your business data is safe, cPanel can help.
cPanel is designed with a variety of tools to help keep websites secure for our first class hosting clients. For example, it allows web administrators to:

  • Add password protection to your directories
  • Restrict access to any part of your website
  • Protect downloads and images with hot-linking tools
  • Update vulnerable scripts automatically with Softaculous
  • Use two-factor authentication and cPanel ID for additional security

At Localnode, we use superior hardware combined with cPanel and Softaculous to ensure that our first class hosting clients have the highest possible level of security for their websites.

#6: Analytics

It’s easy to focus on the technical aspects of cPanel for web administration, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that cPanel provides an array of built-in analytical tool to help you track the performance of your website.
For example, you can use AWStats with cPanel, and it will update your website stats automatically every 24 hours. It provides important details about things like:

  • The number of people visiting your site
  • Which days of the week and month you have the most traffic
  • Which times of day you get the most traffic
  • Which countries visitors are from
  • Robot & spider visitors
  • The duration of visits to your site
  • The search terms that lead people to your site

cPanel itself provides graphical stats and makes it easy for web administrators to customise reports to evaluate the performance of their websites.


Combined with a superior network and first class hosting, cPanel offers web administrators the best tools and capabilities to manage their websites with ease.
