Why Use CPanel?


cPanel is the most popular Linux based hosting control panel used in the web hosting industry. It simplified the normal system administration tasks to such an extent that even a non-technical end user can do the basic things all by themselves via a web-based interface with single click mechanism. See what it is and how it works.

cPanel is an enterprise hosting control panel and you’ll have to purchase the license for it to work with full functionality. It offers 15 days trial version for testing and familiarising purposes.

cPanel works only in CentOS, CloudLinux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Operating Systems.

cPanel comes along with web server suite (LAMP) with a Mail server, FTP server, Name server applications etc. So we don’t have to install each of those packages after installing cPanel.

In this tutorial, we will go through how cPanel is installed and set up in a CentOS server.


How To Install CPanel


cPanel provides a custom installation script, so we just have to download the installation script and execute it to complete the cPanel installation. This is most likely to be done in a newly provisioned server to avoid installation errors.

This can be done by executing a single command in terminal.

cd /home && curl -o latest -L http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest


This command changes the current working directory to /home, downloads the latest cPanel package and executes the installation script.


We offer various cPanel server management services for you, who already have or plan to have a cPanel installed server.
