The Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel was made to deliver innovation to the usual web site control user interface. The prior Control Panel pioneer – cPanel, was made more than ten years ago and has not yet undergone an important upgrade since then. The Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel is built on the ideas of the present day, carrying comfort and intuitiveness to all site managing tasks you could imagine.
Go all the way down and examine the 2 Control Panel interfaces, find out more about their good and bad points and find out which will meet your requirements the most.
1. Domain name/invoicing/website controls
When using the Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel you’ll be able to deal with your web sites, domain names and e–mail addresses within exactly the same location. You don’t need to depend on any extra invoicing or domain user interfaces.
With the cPanel Control Panel, you’ll need to sign into two separate website management tools – a payments panel from which you control domain names and billing and the cPanel Control Panel from where you manage your sites.
2. File Hierarchy
With the Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel, each site name and subdomain will have its folder in the main cloud web hosting account folder. This way, all web sites will be independent from one another.
If you try to handle a wide range of sites from a single cPanel web hosting account, it can be quite puzzling. You’ll have one main site and all other sites and subdomains will be included into its folder as sub–folders. If you need to avail of an independent folder for every single website, you must work with different Control Panel tools for each.
3. File Manager
The Sort-IT Hosting File Manager was designed to work much like your PC file explorer. Including characteristics like drag & drop file uploading, right click navigation menus, zip/unzip functions, and so forth., it will make working with your data files quick and easy. In addition, there’s an inbuilt WYSIWYG manager along with a code editor.
The File Manager integrated in the cPanel Control Panel was modified many times over time, however it still doesn’t present decent results in comparison to the other web–based data file management applications. You are not able to utilize a drag–and–drop functionality to publish files, the archive/extract tool can be unreliable sometimes and the file editing interface is restricted in options.
4. Freely available Gifts
Using the Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel, you will receive a wide range of complimentary benefits put together by our company. They are available totally free with each hosting service, which works with our Control Panel. With each package, you can utilize tools such as the Instant Site Installer, the Free Web Apps, the PHP Framework Installer, the Free Website Builder, an array of Advanced Tools, and more.
The cPanel Control Panel is offered using a commercial certificate and additional bonus features are going to be integrated for an added cost. As a result, even if your service provider delivers free–of–cost add–ons inside the cPanel, their value is going to be calculated into the price of your web hosting offer. Also, the amount and type of no–charge extras will vary from one hosting provider to another.
5. Control Panel Performance Speed
The Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel has been built utilizing the newest Internet technologies. By doing this, it uses in full the power of your browser and connection to the Internet to so you can take care of your sites fast. In our assessment tests, when conducting similar tasks, the Control Panel scored three times faster rates as compared to competitive control panels.
The cPanel Control Panel is installed on lots of servers, working on a wide selection of software and hardware setups. However, its worldwide syndication leads to significantly slower and much less secure functionality in comparison with similar website management solutions that are optimized for 1 platform exclusively.
6. Multi–domain name Administration
With the Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel, you are able to handle a lot of domain names and sites from a single place. Moving between domain name administration and website administration is performed simply by going to a different part of the Control Panel. You do not have to sign into a different web address to manage your website.
The cPanel Control Panel will keep different elements separated – you’ll need to handle your domains from 1 web address and your sites from a separate one. Each site has its own Control Panel. Managing many different web sites from one Control Panel is also possible, but could also be embarrassing because virtually all added domain names will be held in the folder of the principal domain.
7. Control Panel Menu
The Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel is really straightforward to get around. You’ll have a helpful top navigation menu, from where you will get to virtually any part of the Control Panel, with no need to return to the homepage each time. Additionally, we’ve designed a simple statistics module on the main page, so any time you sign in, you will have a glance at how many visitors have recently attended your website.
In the cPanel homepage, you can see icons to all parts of the Control Panel. Consequently, even though you may never use a section, you will still see it on the index page. Also, to navigate between sections, you always have to get straight back to the main page and afterwards head somewhere else.
8. Trial Control Panel Accounts
Using the Sort-IT Hosting Control Panel, we’ve created a full–fledged demo for you to check out in advance of sign–up. You’ll get access to a demo Linux cloud website hosting account from which you can easily create e–mail addresses, install applications, generate new sub–domains, as well as create a website with one of the site builders, etcetera. Should you like what you have created – you you can easily sign up from the demo account and keep the things you have created so far.
The cPanel Control Panel offers a general demo interface that will not present you with access to the key website managing tools you need to examine. It’ll illustrate the way a simple home page seems like and you’ll have access to just a few of all the available management options. The other sections will be inactive unless you sign up.
We could number just about every feature of our Web Site Control Panel here and match it up against the cPanel Control Panel. Nonetheless, it’ll be a lot quicker if you just take a quick look at our live demo account and find out the visible difference by yourself.
