To the lesser tech savvy, the cPanel “control panel” serves a single purpose. Automate web hosting for the masses. You don’t need a degree to create email addresses, manage databases, change passwords and so forth and so on. Point and click. Perform easy to do day to day tasks.
The shared Linux cPanel web hosting platform jails multiple users into separate coordinating home directories. Host unlimited domain names and websites within a single cPanel account. On the backend, CloudLinux cages RAM and CPU to distribute resources systematically. No more viral sites crippling an entire shared server.
