Manage Sites with Ease using cPanel®*
With cPanel®*, website owners can quickly, easily and reliably manage their email accounts, databases, applications, security, FTP, and control every aspect of their website.
Creating Email Accounts
Web site owners can use cPanel®* to create email accounts, available through the standard protocols including POP, IMAP, and SMTP. cPanel®* also supports Push Email via IMAP IDLE, enabling fast incoming and outgoing mail delivery designed with mobile users in mind.
cPanel®* provides several web-based interfaces for checking email, including Horde, Roundcube, and SquirrelMail. You have the ability to access your email from any web browser, as well as configure many account options including email forwarding and auto-responders.
cPanel®* users can set up email forwarding which allows account holders to have an address at one domain (such as firstname.lastname@example.org) and forward incoming messages to another (such as email@example.com).
To help curb spam, cPanel®* gives you the option of using powerful spam filters, SpamAssassin, and BoxTrapper. These powerful utilities analyze your incoming mail, looking at the source and content of the message, as well as comparing it against lists of known spammers. You can also setup spam filter rules which route messages to a spam folder, helping to keep your inbox uncluttered at all times.
Backing up data is simple with the cPanel®* “Backup Wizard.” With a few clicks, cPanel®* will make a full backup of your databases, email, and web site, which you can download to your computer.
cPanel®* makes it easy to manage databases. All of your database tasks, ranging from creating databases to manually editing tables, can be done through cPanel®*. As a standard, cPanel®* supports MySQL databases.
Easy Setup Wizard
To minimize setup time, cPanel®* includes a “Getting Started Wizard,” which will walk you through the initial configuration of your account. Step-by-step tutorials, on-screen documentation, and other useful information is available through the Wizard.
Manage Domain Names
While most Web site owners manage only one domain for their Webhosting account, there are many others who use a combination of domains. Through cPanel®*, you have the ability to manage:
- Subdomains for your top-level domain (example.com), with a prefix (sub.example.com).
- Parked Domains are additional addresses that point to the website.
With cPanel®*, you have several options for managing your website content.
- Easily upload and manage web pages in the cPanel®* File Manager.
- Drag and drop files into your account using the cPanel®* Web Disk feature.
- Utilize traditional file transfer methods such as FTP.
- In addition to offering various file management tools, cPanel®* makes it easy to manage FTP accounts for employees or colleagues, enabling other users to upload files with optional security restrictions.
