No matter the purpose of your website, whether it’s for business, blogging, or anything else, you need a web hosting service that’s capable of catering for your needs and ensuring that you stay online. There are a variety of different web hosting services, all of which have their pros and cons, but the advantages of dedicated VPS hosting have made it a popular choice among website owners.
Unlike Linux and Windows dedicated servers, for which a control panel is a necessary tool, with our VPS web hosting packages the use of a control panel is optional and depends on the user’s preference. If you’re on the fence about control panels and are unsure how it might benefit you as a website owner, here is some information about what a control panel is and how it can be an asset.
What is a Control Panel?
A control panel for dedicated server hosting and VPS is an online interface that allows you to manage your web hosting in one place. Control panels have a graphical interface and a tool suite to make it as user-friendly as possible. This is because not all website owners are in the know about hosting, especially if you’re a business owner getting to grips with things, so it was vital to create a way for people to manage their server without having an abundance of tech knowledge. Thus the control panel was born!
Just as there are a few different types of web hosting, there are also a few different control panels. For Linux dedicated servers, we will provide either Plesk or CPanel, as both work efficiently with this operating system. For Windows dedicated servers we recommend using Plesk. Plesk and Cpanel have their differences, so it’s worth looking into both to establish which is the best choice for your website.
How Will it Benefit Your VPS Web Hosting?
Both our physical and virtual servers are of the utmost quality and at the forefront of web hosting, so it’s good to ensure that you’re getting the most out of them. A control panel allows you to do just this by making it a simple task to manage and scale to suit the needs of your site.
By being able to closely monitor the progress of your website and keep an eye out for any issues or drops in performance, it increases the all-around efficiency of your site. If you happen to be a business owner, this is especially important because a site that’s loading slowly or experiencing unexpected downtime stands to lose a lot of money.
Efficient VPS Scalability
One of the most vital advantages of VPS dedicated servers is scalability. This means that you can tweak the various aspects of your web hosting service to ensure that your website is performing efficiently at all times. Scaling your site to rectify issues such as loading times is a brilliant way to improve your website’s SEO and help you to rank higher in search engines. And we don’t have to tell you how important SEO is!
The use of a control panel makes it a lot easier to manage your server and keep an eye on your site’s progress. And because it’s a much more straightforward task, you’re more likely to maintain an active interest in your site’s performance. Even if that’s not the case, you’ll find that some control panels allow you to ‘autoscale’ to keep up with the demands of your server.
