Is Cpanel easy to learn?

Postby Rich Atkinson » Sat Feb 14, 2009 11:38 am

I asked about Joomla as a way for me to create my own website. Sounds like it would take some time to learn. How about Cpanel. Is that fairly easy to learn to use?

Cpanel is what your web host gives you as part of the hosting package and is where Fantasico, web mail, your web stats, etc in other words many of the things you do to a site start in Cpanel

cPanel is fairly easy to learn and use and is quite popular. Joomla, on the other hand, can be a bit more difficult if you're not used to using content management systems. It just takes more time to learn than say Wordpress.

Yes, cpanel is part of your hosting, and depending on the theme you choose to view your cpanel with, it should also give you video tutorials within each area on how to use each feature. So yep, very easy to use.Just click an icon, and at the top of the next page should be a link to view the video tutorial for that feature.

The cPanel offerbasic features. you can easily create, or edit, or delete e-mail accounts, thereby manage all your email accounts, as well as also perform all domains or sub-domains maintenance from either of the control panels. You can also upload all your files and manage them from your cPanel account. There are other add-ons available with both and for most of the webmasters, these capabilities are sufficient to produce and manage good websites.

Hi Rich,

Joomla and Cpanel are two different tools that are used for different
purposes. You use Joomla to create and manage a content site. And
you use Cpanel to manage your hosting account.

So, with Cpanel you can do things like:
- create, edit and delete email accounts, autoresponder
- upload, edit and download files to your server
- create sub domains
- check site statistics
- etc.

And I would say, it's quite easy to learn. Like Tracy mentions, some
Cpanel themes comes with video tutorials that you can watch.

Just note that Cpanel is not a tool you would use to create websites.
But you can use Cpanel to install such tools (like Joomla or Wordpress).
In order to use this installation feature though, your Cpanel must
have a feature like Fantastico.

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,
