What Is cPanel?
cPanel is a web based hosting control panel provided by many hosting providers to website owners allowing them to manage their websites from a web based interface. This program gives users a graphical interface from which they can control their portion of the web server. The tools provided are designed to simplify running and controlling a website. It uses a tiered structure that allows different levels of access. Administrators can control the different aspects of the server and the website directly through their browser. Depending on the hosting provider the cPanel will generally have some sort of auto installer or package dedicated to content management systems like Joomla! or WordPress.
