If you’re purchasing your hosting plan for the first time, chances are you’re going to need something that will help you manage the hosted services and the servers as well. Which means you must opt for the right hosting control panel that will benefit you the most in terms of dealing with things like databases, tracking multiple logins, SSL, modules or entire apps you want to use, configuring settings for PHP and others.
Consider the fact that you may be a person with little technical know-how, and it all starts to get a little bit messy. It all sounds way too complicated and it could take a lot of time for you to work out the correct settings on your own.
Some web hosting providers deliver a control panel within the hosting plans they offer, while other times you have to purchase your hosting plan and the control panel separately. Which could further add up to the entire web hosting control panel complexity.
