Migrating to cPanel from other platforms

The right control panel software makes a big difference to your ability to keep your website updated without the need to constantly call in an IT professional to make the slightest changes. However, it's easy to get confused by the wide range of platforms out there, and consequently end up with a control panel option that doesn't meet all of your practical requirements.

Plesk, DirectAdmin and Ensim all have their drawbacks

Here at PAC WebHosting, we receive a lot of enquiries from online business owners who are interested in the fact that all of our web hosting packages include the industry-leading cPanel software - as well as how its merits compare to those of their site's current platform.

Our team has used many of these panels first-hand and is, therefore, well-placed to know of their respective advantages and disadvantages. One of the most popular such panels, Plesk, is famed for its ease of installation, customisation potential and minimal use of resources. But on the negative side, it does have a history of security vulnerabilities and - crucially for those only just using web hosting control panels for the first time - is complex as far as the installation of scripts is concerned.

DirectAdmin is another oft-mentioned option, and there's no denying that it's cheaper than many of the alternatives, while boasting beginner-friendly simplicity. But on the other hand, the lack of plugins limits the scope for modifying the control panel in accordance with your own requirements. Then, there's Ensim - brilliant in terms of its smart, professionally-designed interface and support for a wide range of operating systems, but it's still just not as user-friendly as cPanel.

Plenty of reasons to migrate - so why not?

While we would never pretend that cPanel is always perfect in every way, there's a reason why we chose it for all of our web hosting plans when we could have easily promoted many other platforms - it's simply the best all-round option out there.

Not only is cPanel incredibly simple to install, this able to be done in just a few steps, it also features a very intuitive interface, with different virtual interfaces available for different users such as clients, administrators and email users. Its extensive selection of website management features enable you to undertake tasks relating to your website, such as forwarding email addresses and maintaining a regular database, that would otherwise be complicated to do.

Given the general ease of use associated with cPanel, you may not be surprised to learn that it's also not too difficult to transfer your site from your current control panel to cPanel - at least when you do so with us! As a cPanel Partner NOC, we are perfectly placed to carry out efficient migrations to cPanel. In addition to having a strong track record of offering this service, we do not charge you for it and we will copy over every part of your site - from your website files and databases to your email accounts.

With around 4.9 million domains having been created using cPanel and WHM during 2015 alone, the software continues to enjoy a strong following among the leading online businesses - indeed, it already powers a quarter of the web, a proportion that continues to grow. Enquire to PAC WebHosting now about our acclaimed migration service that will enable you to quickly start taking advantage of the benefits of this highly rated web hosting control panel.
