WHAT IS cPanel?cpanel logo
cPanel is a fully featured web-based control panel that allows a web hosting customer to manage an Internet domain through the web browser and an easy to use web interface. The basic idea behind cPanel is to transfer as much control of a domain and the responsibility of managing your web site to to the hosting client

The hosting clients then has the ability to manage all aspects of e-mail, files, backup, FTP, CGI scripts, and web site statistics. This ability reduces waiting time for clients when needing basic support. -- excerpt from The Web Hosting Resource Kit
