1. Domain name/invoicing/website tools


With the HOSTneeded Control Panel you will be able to manage all of your websites, domain names and mailboxes within the same place. You don’t need to go with any additional payments or domain user interfaces.


If you require individual Control Panel solutions – one for your web sites, and another from which you can manage your domains and payments, then cPanel is designed for you. However, you’ll have to log into 2 places all at once to effectively handle your web presence.

2. File Hierarchy


In the HOSTneeded Control Panel, all your domains and subdomains are going to be free from one another. Each individual website will have its own folder isolated from the rest in the main folder of your hosting account. You can quickly change from focusing on one web site to managing another.


Using the cPanel Control Panel, you’ve a single website hosting account for your primary web site and if you intend to include more web sites in the very same hosting account, they will be added as subfolders of your primary site. This could make maintaining several websites definitely confusing.

3. File Manager


With the File Manager of the HOSTneeded Control Panel, you’ll have complete control of the data files of your sites. You’ll be able to easily add new files with a drag & drop feature, successfully edit a few files at a time by way of the multi–selection functionality, unarchive archives with a click of the mouse, edit files with the inbuilt basic and WYSWYG managers and many more.


The File Manager of cPanel is slow and constrained in functions. Submitting numerous files needs a considerable amount of time and will not include drag & drop support. The built–in zip/unzip tool is untrustworthy and the file managing tools offer you just simple controls. There’s no instant access to the available file administration capabilities.

4. No–fee Bonuses


If you are on the lookout to obtain more for your bucks, then the HOSTneeded Control Panel is the best solution. It arrives with no–charge gifts that are estimated to cost more than $1000.

The cPanel Control Panel is delivered by using a paid certificate and add–on bonus tools will be included at an additional fee. As a result, even if your service provider delivers 100–percent–free bonuses in the cPanel, their value is going to be included in the price tag of your hosting plan. Additionally, the amount and sort of freely available bonus tools will be different from one web hosting supplier to another.

5. Control Panel Operational Speed

The cPanel Control Panel is configured on numerous machines, working on a wide variety of hardware and software setups. However, its common distribution results in considerably slower and much less protected operation when compared with other site management tools that are designed for 1 platform only.

6. Multi–domain name Administration


Using the HOSTneeded Control Panel, you are able to handle many different domain names and web sites from a single place. Transitioning between domain name management and website management is carried out just by moving to a new area of the Control Panel. It’s not necessary to log into a standalone web address to manage your websites.


With cPanel, it is extremely hard to manage your domain names and your web sites from just one area, as the two interfaces are divided. You have to sign into two distinct places every time you need to modify your domain name features and website contents at the same time.

7. Control Panel Navigation


With the HOSTneeded Control Panel, you will be given the most up–to–date stats for your web sites and with quick shortcut icons to the most important parts. Plus, you’re able to navigate within the Control Panel, thanks to our top navigation bar, which includes links to all available sections.


The cPanel Control Panel lists all icons on the main page, which means that it isn’t personalized to your particular requirements. Moreover, once you enter a menu, you won’t be able to easily change to another and need to to go back to the home page alternatively. This type of navigation could be truly irritating for you, especially if you take advantage of lots of sections each time you modify your sites.
