The NEXSTAR Control Panel was created to deliver innovation to the normal site control user interface. The earlier Control Panel pioneer – cPanel, was made more than a decade ago and has never undergone a critical upgrade since that time. The NEXSTAR Control Panel is based on the ideas of the present, providing comfort and user friendliness to all website managing operations you could think about.
Go down and examine the two site management interfaces, get to know more about their benefits and drawbacks and see which will meet your demands the most.
1. Domain/billing/website adjustments
Using the NEXSTAR Control Panel you will be able to take care of all your sites, domains and email addresses from exactly the same location. You do not need to go with any other payments or domain name user interfaces.
If you require separate Control Panel solutions – one for your web sites, and another from which you can manage your domains and invoicing, then cPanel is good for you. Nonetheless, you’ll have to sign into 2 URLs all at once to properly maintain your online presence.
2. File Hierarchy
Using the NEXSTAR Control Panel, each web address and subdomain will have its unique folder inside the main website hosting account directory. This way, all web sites will be fully isolated from one another.
In the cPanel Control Panel, you will have a single folder for your primary website and all of the additional web sites are situated inside this directory. This would make managing a number of sites from one interface very confusing.
3. File Manager
The NEXSTAR Control Panel provides an uncomplicated File Manager, which allows you to upload files by only dragging them in your web browser. You will get comfortable access to all the functions by means of helpful right–click context navigation. You can also apply back–end code and WYSIWYG editors. All capabilities are are super easy to access.
The cPanel’s File Manager will provide you with limited control of your files and folders. You’ll have trouble adding many different files simultaneously and will not be able to drag and drop files because this capability isn’t supported. A zip/extract functionality is not made available either. File revising tools are also minimized in number.
4. Free–of–charge Gifts
With the NEXSTAR Control Panel, you will have a great deal of cost–free gifts developed by us. They are available at zero cost with each hosting solution, which works with our Control Panel. With each plan, you can employ tools such as the Instant Web Site Installer, the Best Web Applications, the PHP Framework Installer, the Cost Free Web Site Generator, a set of Advanced Tools, and even more.
The zero–cost tools included in the cPanel Control Panel could vary from nil to several. All of the cost–free extras within the cPanel Control Panel are licensed software and will be accessible only if your web hosting provider has purchased a certificate to offer them. So, if your service provider free–of–charge gifts along with your package, they’ll in fact add to the price of the plan.
5. Control Panel Speeds
The NEXSTAR Control Panel runs using our own Linux shared web hosting. It’s enhanced to function on our setup of hardware components and to function using our collection of software programs. This makes it run faster when compared with virtually any Control Panel in the marketplace. And it’s more reliable as well.
The cPanel Control Panel is installed on 1000s of machines, operating on a wide array of software and hardware configuration setups. Nevertheless, its widespread distribution ends in considerably sluggish and less protected performance as compared with alternative Control Panel tools that are designed for just one system only.
6. Multi–domain name Administration
The NEXSTAR Control Panel allows you to flawlessly manage various web sites in addition to their domain names from a single location. Each individual website is going to have its very own separate folder in the root directory of your web hosting account and will be entirely independent from the rest. That way, you can utilize only 1 account to maintain as many domains and websites as you need.
If you try to run different domains in a cPanel account, you will end up facing a very perplexing directory arrangement. In general, cPanel hosting accounts are meant to manage only 1 domain. In this way, in order to deal with ten domains simultaneously, for instance, you’ll need to configure ten unique accounts. Or else, all added domain names’ content files will be situated in the directory of the main domain.
7. Control Panel Menu
The NEXSTAR Control Panel is admittedly simple to browse through. You’ll find a useful top menu, through which you may get to just about any part of the Control Panel, with no need to get back to the index page each time. Plus, we’ve designed a quick stats module on the home page, so when you log in, you’ll have information of how many visitors have recently arrived at your web site.
On the cPanel main page, you can see icons for all sections of the Control Panel. As a result, even if you never make use of an area, you’ll still find it on the index page. Additionally, to move between sections, you always have to browse back to the home page and then head somewhere else.
8. Demo Control Panel Accounts
Using the NEXSTAR Control Panel, we have created an all–inclusive demo interface for you to check out in advance of sign–up. You will get access to a demo Linux shared web hosting account from which you are able to setup e–mail accounts, use web apps, generate brand–new sub–domains, and also create a website using any of the web–site constructors, etc. If you like what you have come up with – you you’re able to register from the demo account and preserve anything you have come up with so far.
Through the demo website hosting account of the cPanel Control Panel, you’re able to solely get acquainted with look of the user interface. Nearly all capabilities are disabled and you also can’t in reality get past the main page. With the majority of web hosting suppliers, you will be given entry to a normal cPanel demo account, and will not have the ability to experience the Control Panel you’ll in fact be employing to control your web sites if you enroll.
