The prior Control Panel leader – cPanel, was created in the year 2000 and hasn’t ever experienced an important advancement since that time. The HostRaven Control Panel is built on the concepts of the present day, bringing usability and user friendliness to all web–site administration responsibilities you can think about.
Scroll down and review the two site management tools, find out more about their advantages and drawbacks and see which one of them can address your needs best.
1. Domain name/billing/website settings
Using the HostRaven Control Panel you’ll be able to control all your web sites, domains and e–mail addresses from exactly the same place. You don’t have to go with any extra billing or domain name interfaces.
If you need individual Control Panel solutions – one for your web sites, and yet another from where you can manage your domains and billing, then cPanel is designed for you. However, you will have to sign into 2 URLs at the same time to successfully maintain your web presence.
2. File Hierarchy
With the HostRaven Control Panel, each domain name and subdomain will have its folder inside the main website hosting account directory. In this manner, all sites will be fully independent from one another.
Using the cPanel Control Panel, you’ve just one web hosting account for your primary web site and in case you need to have additional web sites in the very same web hosting account, they’re going to be incorporated as subfolders of your primary website. This will make handling multiple sites truly difficult.
3. File Manager
The HostRaven File Manager was created to work exactly like your desktop file explorer. Including attributes such as drag & drop file file publishing, right click context menus, archive/extract functions, etc., it will make manipulating your files quick and easy. And also, there is also an inbuilt WYSIWYG editor together with a back–end code manager.
The File Manager of cPanel is sluggish and limited in characteristics. Uploading a number of files requires a great deal of time and and won’t offer drag–and–drop support. The integrated archive/unzip tool is hard to rely on and the file managing tools supply you with only simple controls. There isn’t fast access to the included file administration actions.
4. No–cost Extras
The cPanel Control Panel is delivered using a paid certificate and extra extras will be included for an added price. Consequently, even if your supplier features free–of–charge gifts within the cPanel, their particular value will be calculated into the cost of your website hosting offer. At the same time, the quantity and type of free–of–charge bonus tools will vary from one web hosting provider to another.

cPanel continues to be performing on a platform from a decade ago and will truly be slow occasionally. The cPanel development team has carried out a vital step with the release of cPanel accelerated. Nonetheless, in comparison experiments, widespread web site managing operations typically exhibit greater results with other Control Panel tools.
6. Multi–domain Management
Using the HostRaven Control Panel, you are able to manage a wide range of domain names and web sites from just one location. Switching between domain management and web site administration is done by simply changing to a different section of the Control Panel. It is not necessary to log into a different interface to manage your sites.
If you try to run many different domains in a cPanel website hosting account, you’ll end up confronted with a very perplexing directory hierarchy. In general, cPanel hosting accounts are meant to handle one domain. In this way, if you want to handle ten domain names at the same time, for instance, you’ll need to set up ten separate accounts. Or else, all of the extra domains’ content files will be found in the folder of the main domain.
7. Control Panel Navigation

And also, you’re able to navigate around the Control Panel, thanks to HostRaven’s top navigation bar, which features hyperlinks to all presented sections.
The cPanel Control Panel lists all offered icons on the main page, which means it isn’t designed to your specific necessities. In addition, once you access a menu, you won’t be able to instantly move to a different one and will have to return to the homepage alternatively.
