Brief Overview of cPanel - Final Words
(Page 4 of 4 )
Thanks for sticking with us during this cPanel overview article. We hope that you've found it informative and educational. By now you should be feeling up-to-date with the latest web-hosting control panels, because the world of commercial web hosting services revolves around cPanel. They have been the leader in this area for about a decade.
If you are looking for a web space and you'd rather pay for a commercial and professional hosting company that can provide you with a plan that fits your needs, instead of running your own server, then don't be afraid, because administering your website won't be hard at all. You may want to double-check whether cPanel is included in your specific plan at your hosting company; chances are that it is.
cPanel was designed with the end-user in mind. Therefore, managing your own web space isn't a black art anymore; it can be done by anybody, even those with limited knowledge of computers. As long as you have a basic understanding of the features that you want to use and a strong all-around grasp on the technicalities of the Web (which is also documented and can be learned by anyone), then you'll be fine.
I also want to point out that the technical support of commercial web hosting companies does (depending on how "professional" the company is) an exceptional job helping you out whenever you're facing dilemmas or struggling to get something fixed. You are a paying customer; it's their duty to provide top-notch assistance on a 24/7/365 basis, or otherwise specified. All in all, don't hesitate to contact them and ask for help.
