cPanel hosting empowers a website's owner with a wide variety of options and a high level of control, all with an easy to use and approachable graphical interface. If you're a web developer looking for a deeper level of information and control than simple content management systems or website templates, cPanel web hosting is an excellent option for you to consider.

cPanel offers access to and control over a site's attached email accounts (including autoresponders, filtering, email authentications, and spam filters), privacy and security options (including banned IPs, password protection for directories and files, and several other built-in security features), and domain management (including subdomains, parked domains, addon domains, and redirects). cPanel web hosting also offers the user a wide variety of third-party apps - of which there are plenty, considering that cPanel has been consistent, widespread use since 1997.

Easily accessed, modified, and managed files, including a simple and straightforward file browser, and site statistic logging are also built into cPanel. With these highly useful features, you'll be able to not only control the files you put up for the world to see, but also be able to view the data on the users who work with those files.

Besides the features above, cPanel also gives webmasters control over their data and content via MySQL and PostgreSQL database management. User-created and user-submitted content is often one of the main factors in developing a website that keeps users coming back repeatedly, and direct database management through cPanel is a highly useful feature of our hosting service.

You'll follow the simple instructions you receive to access your site's cPanel main page - from there, an easy-to-use search feature and clear, efficient, and pleasant presentation ensure that you'll find the services you're looking for as quickly as possible. You can also follow our cPanel Tutorial. If you do ever run into any problems or issues, you can seek help from the massive archive of discussions relating to cPanel online; since it is such a well-established piece of software, your question or issue has almost certainly been encountered before, and you'll be able to find a fix easily. Of course, you always have access to A2 Hosting's 24/7/365 support team as well!

Besides this basic functionality, cPanel offers its users access to a large number of third-party apps that can either automate tedious, repetitive processes or expand upon cPanel's already versatile capabilities. You'll be able to customize cPanel to offer the services you want to see when managing your website easily this way, ensuring that you can spend the bulk of your time on the website itself rather than back-end features that users will never see.

cPanel hosting is a tried-and-true method of managing a website. Constant use has honed its functionality down to the most powerful tools available while at the same time making the presentation easy to understand and master. cPanel gives you, the webmaster, ultimate control over the content and presentation of your site - you can get your hands dirty in databases themselves, tap into the inner workings of your site, or leave it to more experienced hands via outside apps while at the same time holding on to the final say.

When you work with cPanel, you're working with a choice - your website becomes and stays yours, enabling you to work with its content and presentation as much or as little as you want. Devote your time where you want to do so, not where you have to. Where other web management software forces you to learn its inner workings in order to be able to perform the simplest of tasks, cPanel's graphic nature and intuitive presentation ensure that you won't have to constantly be referring to documentation and message boards to accomplish the tasks you want.

We offer the fastest hosting services at some of the lowest prices available! We are a cPanel host that offers SSD hosting, providing a massive boost to your site's speed, as well as several available data centers, ensuring that you're not sending content around the world and back again to reach local users.

That passcode will also need to be entered to access your account. That means even if your password is compromised, unauthorized account access will be prevented because the malicious user will not be able to generate and enter a unique passcode from your smart device.
