While Cpanel is one of the most popular website control panel solutions online today, it is not the only choice on the market. FatCow employs the vDeck control panel software for its webhosting customers. While very similar to Cpanel and offering all the same functionality, FatCow’s vDesk has a slightly simpler and stripped down look making it less intimidating to first time webmasters.
If you’re new to the world of website management and the idea of control panels in general don’t worry. Unlike other technologies that often make your life more complicated, a control panel will only make your life and website maintenance tasks easier. You can easily upload new files to your web server using the web based FTP option in on the FatCow control panel, without the need to download stand alone FTP software. Another great FatCow vDesk feature is access control for others who may need to edit website pages and upload new files. Other standard features such as domain management and web mail administration are also possible via the vDesk platform.
Above all else the number one feature that you can’t live without on the FatCow control panel is the one-click install program for popular web based software packages. If you’d like to use the latest free open-source software to power your website like WordPress or Drupal a one-click install will save you hours from trying to figure out how to install it on your own. vDesk also has a “drag and drop” site builder tool for you to create a professional looking site in under an hour.
