Trying to learn, or complete a task relating to cPanel can be daunting. This is especially so, when you may not know the meaning of some of the terminology used in the tutorials and guides you read.

You will find below some of the most frequently used terminology. It is not intended to be an all encompassing glossary, just a primer on the most important terms used throughout our tutorials and guides.

What is cPanel?

cPanel is a popular control panel used for managing web hosting. It features a graphical user-friendly interface so you do not need any technical knowledge to manage your hosting.

Because it is easy to use, it is very popular with many web hosting providers. You can manage your files, email addresses, domains, backups, and databases through the cPanel control panel. You can view our tutorials showing how to carry out many tasks within cPanel here.

Furthermore, many hosting providers install add-ons allowing easy integration with third-party services such as CloudFlare, or Codeguard (backup service). One popular add-on is Softaculous, a one-click software installer, allowing you to install WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and hundreds of other software in just a few clicks.

There are other control panels available, such as Plesk and DirectAdmin. You can read about the differences here.
