cPanel Made Simple: An Introduction for Beginners

As someone who uses cPanel every other day, and someone who’s used it for the better part of the past two decades, I would like to introduce you to this powerful web-based control panel, from the perspective of someone who’s new to cPanel, or who’s just about heard of it from someone higher up in the technical food chain.

And if you’re someone who’s in IT and haven’t had the time to play with or use this technology, this short introduction will guide you in the right direction. At least one that will help you learn, certify and feel well guided.

cPanel is a comprehensive tool that simplifies website management and can benefit your business in numerous ways. cPanel was originally created by John Nick Koston in 1996 as a control panel for managing web hosting accounts and servers, and quickly became popular in the web hosting industry. Today, cPanel is widely used by web hosting providers and website owners around the world to manage their websites, email accounts, databases, and hundreds of other features.

Speaking of it in layman terms, cPanel is a piece of software that runs on web servers. It’s something that’s bundled with web hosting services and web hosting providers install, update and maintain cPanel. The product comes with two tools, WHM or Web Hosting Manager and cPanel – WHM for system administrators and cPanel for end-users.

cPanel is included with many web hosting packages, which makes it a popular choice for website owners. Its interface is user-friendly and easy to navigate, allowing you to manage different aspects of your website with ease. You can set up domain names, upload and manage files, create and manage email accounts, manage databases, and install popular applications like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.

One of the benefits of using cPanel is that it provides a centralized location for managing all aspects of your websites. This makes it easy to monitor and maintain your website’s performance, security, and uptime. With cPanel, you can quickly and easily access important features like backups, logs, and security settings.

Access to cPanel is provided by your hosting provider, usually with a URL and login credentials. Once logged in, you have various options in the form of icons to click on and choose what you need to do. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to manage things that would require a sysadmin to write Bash commands and edit files.

You can see this for yourself by accessing the cPanel demo at the following link (just click; you won’t need a username and password):


The demo provides a virtual tour of cPanel’s features. It’s an excellent way to get a feel for the platform’s capabilities and user-friendly interface, and can help you make an informed decision about whether cPanel is the right tool for your website management needs (if in case you are evaluating alternatives like Plesk).

It’s important to note that while some aspects of cPanel can be challenging for business users, cPanel offers many features that are easy to understand and set up. For example, you can quickly and easily create email accounts, change passwords, set up email forwarders, and configure auto-responses. You can even use cPanel’s WordPress Toolkit (which now comes for free), to install WordPress, create site clones and take backups.

cPanel’s user-friendly interface makes it accessible to users of all levels of experience. You don’t need to be a technical expert to manage your website with cPanel. The platform offers extensive documentation and training resources to help you get started and optimize your experience.

cPanel’s extensive documentation, which provides detailed information on all aspects of the platform, is published at:


The documentation covers all features, from basic features like creating email accounts and managing files, to more advanced topics like taking backups and managing security settings.

In addition to documentation, cPanel also offers cPanel University, a comprehensive training platform designed to help users become proficient in managing their website with cPanel. You can access cPanel University at:


cPanel University offers a range of courses, tutorials, and exams to help users develop their skills and stay up to date with the latest features and best practices for website management. You can start your cPanel trading journey with the cPanel Fundamentals course (and other courses) published here.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced cPanel user, cPanel’s documentation and training resources are an invaluable asset for getting the most out of this powerful web-based control panel.

To sum up, cPanel is the web hosting platform of choice in the web industry. It’s Linux only and has the widest marketshare amongst website control panels. Its closest rival Plesk, while aesthetically pleasing and available for both Linux and Windows, is only second to cPanel in terms of popularity and availability.
