1. Easy to use
Once you begin to use cPanel, you’ll realize how easy it is to use. It also makes the task of running a website that much easier. You will be able to configure all the extensions for your website without worry.
cPanel allows you to add apps to your website using softaculous App Installer to get the job done. You’re able to add several applications to your website with just the click of a button. This way, adding content management systems such as WordPress as well as shopping carts and social media plugins all through cPanel is super easy.
In addition to having a one-click installer, cPanel also helps users to automatically complete tasks by scanning servers and rebooting systems if anything goes wrong.
Another good thing about cPanel is that it runs well on just about any web browser, so there’s no need to worry whether your browser is compatible or not. In addition to this, cPanel has an abundance of tools for you to choose from which makes using a third-party app much easier.
3. Access to tools
By now you’ll realize that cPanel has an abundance of tools that can make your web hosting experience worthwhile. There are tools such as:
• Backup wizard – As long as you own a website, backups are a necessity to help prevent data loss. In just a few clicks, you can have your cPanel backup wizard up and running.

To use site publisher, it only takes a few clicks from your cPanel browser window. You will then fill in some basic information and select a template, hot publish and then you’re done.
4. Reliable and Support
Your company’s reputation is heavily influenced by the quality of its website. It also improves your search engine optimization (SEO) rating. Not only do you get some of the most reliable features and tools with cPanel, but you also get excellent assistance.
cPanel can also identify faults and restart your system on its own, in addition to having a robust support system. This reduces downtime and ensures that your website performs at its best.
Security is also very important as hackers are always lurking about trying to attack websites. As long as your website has a vulnerability, a hacker can get to it. As such, protecting your website should be of utmost importance. That’s why cPanel provides simple but effective security precautions such as passwords and two-factor authentication for the safety of your websites.
cPanel also provides a security policy that can be put in place to detect suspicious IP addresses. This way you can configure security questions to ensure the user trying to log in is authorized.
6. Extremely Flexible and Portable
Server relocation is simple using cPanel. It’s yet another fantastic cPanel feature. It enables you to move your website, including all of its content, from one web hosting server to another without experiencing any technical difficulties. That is a feature that not many control panels have.
Installing cPanel is straightforward. It also doesn’t take up much space. It only needs a Linux system with at least 20 GB of accessible disk space and 512 MB of RAM.
