A cPanel VPS provides VPS administrators with an easy to learn, yet powerful graphical interface for managing their server.
cPanel is a hosting control panel that eases many of the common tasks associated with the day to day operations of your server. The number of features cPanel offers is very extensive and we can only touch on the surface of what cPanel can bring to your VPS. Some of the more common features are:
Adding or removing a domain to your cPanel VPS is a breeze using cPanel's built-in account management. You can add a domain, subdomain or alias to your server in under a minute, cPanel handles all the heavy lifting. The account is created, DNS entries are made, FTP accounts are setup and passwords are generated. If you plan on hosting email from your server cPanel will configure your mail server to accept email for your desired domain as well.
Included with your cPanel VPS is phpMyAdmin, a very nice tool for graphically managing MySQL databases on your VPS. You can easily create databases, add users, manage user permissions and much more. Almost every common task associated with database management is built into phpMyAdmin for your cPanel VPS. You can edit records, run queries, perform database maintenance, add tables, change the structure of your databases and tables, and even add and remove indexes all from your web browser.
Our cPanel VPS Packages come standard with Xen and DBI ControlSys, our web based VPS control panel for VPS management via your browser.
In addition to Xen, DBI ControlSys and the reliability of a DBI Hosting VPS, all of our cPanel VPS's come standard with the following:
DBI ControlSys Xen Web Based Administration
Weekly Bare-metal Backups
Daily Filesystem Backups
On-Demand Bare-metal Backups
We offer our cPanel VPS with either CentOS or FreeBSD operating systems.
CentOS is one of the most popular operating systems to run with cPanel and recommended by the cPanel support staff for new cPanel installations. You will find a large community support base for cPanel on CentOS and a vast amount of documentation on a variety of configurations running on cPanel with CentOS.
FreeBSD is a great option for users familiar with the BSD environment. FreeBSD has rock solid stability and ranks among the top performing platforms. Support for FreeBSD is a little more limited and documentation may be harder to find for untraditional configurations.
