Maybe for those of you who are struggling in the field of Domain & Hosting, you must often hear the word cPanel. But for some who are just starting to learn the world of hosting, maybe it's still a little foreign. Before going deeper, let's take a brief look at Domain & Hosting.



Domain is a unique address that is used to identify a website on the internet. For example, "google.com" is the domain of the Google website. A domain usually consists of a website name and a suitable extension, such as .com, .org, .net, etc.


Hosting is a service that provides a place to store your website files and arranges for your website to be accessed by users on the internet. When you buy hosting, you will get access to a web server that will be used to store your website files and an IP address to access your website via the internet.

To create a website that can be accessed by other people, you must have a domain and hosting. You have to register your domain through a domain registrar and buy hosting from a hosting provider. After that, you have to configure your domain to point to your hosting IP address, so when someone types your domain address in a browser, they will be redirected to your website which is stored on your hosting server.

Simply put, a domain is yourdomain.com, and hosting is where you place website content along with other peripherals in it (email, database, etc.). So the domain cannot be opened if there is no hosting, in contrast to hosting which can still be accessed without a domain (however, the features that can be used are limited).



But what exactly is cPanel?

cPanel is a web application used to manage and manage web servers. cPanel provides an easy-to-use graphical interface that allows users to manage files, databases, email accounts, domains and much more without having to know any technical commands.

cPanel is an alternative hosting control panel from many other web applications that can be used to manage web servers. Other examples of hosting control panels are Plesk, Virtualmin, Webuzo, Ajenti, Webmin, etc. Of the several applications, of course, there are free and paid ones. But the name is free, of course the features and convenience in it are different from those that are paid.

cPanel provides various features that can be used by users, such as:

  • File Manager: manage files and folders on the web server.
  • Databases: manage MySQL and phpMyAdmin databases.
  • Email: manage email accounts and email configuration.
  • Domains: manage domains and subdomains.
  • Statistics: view website statistics such as number of visitors, bandwidth, and others.
  • Backups: create and manage website backups.
  • and many other features.

cPanel is very popularly used by web hosting providers and is especially helpful for users who do not have sufficient technical skills to manage web servers manually. Therefore DatautamaNet also uses cPanel for hosting services.
