Do I need cPanel on VPS?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 2:57 pm

There are pros and cons to using cPanel on your virtual private server (VPS). Overall, cPanel is a robust and feature-rich management interface that makes administering your server a breeze.

However, cPanel can be a resource hog, so if your VPS is only used for occasional tasks or isn’t critical to your business, then it may not be worth installing cPanel. Additionally, cPanel can be expensive to license, so if you don’t plan on using a lot of its features, it may be cheaper to find a different VPS management software.

PRO TIP: cPanel is a web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a web site. cPanel is available on most web hosting providers that offer shared web hosting plans.

While cPanel can make managing a web site easier, it is not required. There are a number of alternative control panels available that can be used on a VPS. Some of these alternative control panels include Plesk, DirectAdmin, Webmin, and Virtualmin.

Ultimately, it depends on your needs and budget whether or not you need cPanel on your VPS. If you’re confident you’ll use most of cPanel’s features, then it’s worth the investment.

However, if you’re on a tight budget or don’t anticipate using cPanel much, then another VPS management software may be a better option.
