    Slamdot.com: Making the Web Friendlier - Welcome to the Control Panel

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    As I mentioned, the control panel is designed to be intuitive. I was fortunate enough to have a live chat with one of the friendly folks at Slamdot; he gave me access to a demo account so I could poke around and take screen shots to show you. After logging in and clicking on the link for the demo, this is what I saw:


    I had to crop and shrink the picture to fit. That's a shame, because if you want to know the truth, everything on the screen when you actually view it in your browser is clear enough to see without glasses! And it's all very clearly labeled.

    Let's look at the tabs first. They're labeled "Plan," "Website," "Files," "Email" and "Advanced." The tab in the screen shot above is for the Plan. From this tab, as you can see, you can do a variety of tasks, including access your files, check your web stats, create an email account, and change your server password. Over on the right hand column, you get figures for your bandwidth and disk usage. You can jump to web mail access, get web stats, or use your database manager. You also get a quick reference to hosting information (not in screen shot, sorry).

    Under this tab you'll also see links to Status and Settings. The Status link provides you with a great quick reference to your plan; you get a chart that tells you what plan you're on, and gives you vital statistics about disk space, data transfer, web sites, pointers, subdomains, databases, FTP users, and email addresses. It tells you how much you're using and how much you're allowed. A link in this section also takes you to a chart that shows you a history of your usage broken down by month.

    The Settings link under the Plan tab lets you change your server password, and contact person and email. You can also cancel your plan from this section.
