Reseller Hosting with cPanel

What is cPanel?

cPanel is a well-known web hosting control panel. cPanel and Web Host Manager (WHM) software enables users to manage multiple websites and domains. Resellers can run a web hosting business by selling hosting to third party clients. 

Resellers using cPanel are charged a licence fee, which increases depending on the number of websites that are hosted. Optional paid extras include software like Web Host Manager Complete Solution (WHMCS), which includes automatic billing and provisioning tools.

20i’s Reseller Hosting account uses a free control panel created by our team of developers: My20i. It improves on cPanel in every way. But you can still use cPanel to run a reseller business on 20i web hosting - see below.

cPanel vs My20i - what’s the difference?

My20i was developed as a better alternative to cPanel. With decades of experience in the web hosting industry, our team of developers identified many areas where cPanel could be improved.

Complexity and user experience 

cPanel has been around for a long time and has many foibles as a result. For a new user, it’s a steep learning curve. My20i is designed to be simple and intuitive, and work perfectly on any device. Users still have access to all the features available in cPanel - but they are more user-friendly and accessible. It has a fresh, modern look that makes web hosting management a pleasure.

Familiar design and features

While we wanted to improve the user experience, we didn’t want to alienate people! We’ve made it easy for those experienced in using cPanel by making the design familiar. You can get up and running in moments. 

Developed for bulk management

If you’ve got lots of websites, it can be a pain to manage them all in cPanel. My20i is under constant development, based on feedback from our reseller customers. Almost all our new features are focused on improving Resellers’ experience. 

It’s fast and easy to get to where you need to go, and you can see bulk views of what’s important. You can organise the user interface to your preferences and apply flexible tags to items to make sure they can be easily filtered and managed.

Infinite customisation

My20i is designed to be customised and includes an API to integrate it into your existing systems. StackCP - which is the control panel that Resellers' customers use - can be customised to match your brand, much more than the cPanel offering.

Fast and easy cPanel migration

It isn’t difficult to make the switch to My20i. Head to our automated Migration Centre, enter your credentials, choose which packages you want to transfer, hit ‘Migrate’ - and your hosting is transferred over to My20i. Learn more about how to migrate from cPanel.

No limits

WIth 20i Reseller Hosting, you get to host as many websites as you like - for no extra cost. You don't pay a licence fee for My20i, and unlike Reseller Hosting with cPanel, you won’t be charged based on the number of sites you host. HostShop - which is like an improved version of WHMCS with more features - is also included in the price. It’s unlimited web hosting, for a simple monthly fee. 

You can test out My20i and see how it compares with cPanel, for just £1. Head over to our Reseller Hosting page to find out more.

Perhaps you’d prefer to use cPanel? No problem: you can still take advantage of the excellent value and performance that you get with 20i hosting.

You can do this with a virtual private server (VPS). With a VPS, you get dedicated resources - processors, RAM and storage - and more freedom than a standard shared web hosting account. It’s like your own computer in the cloud.

We offer two types of VPS. Our Managed Hosting uses My20i. If you want to use cPanel for reseller hosting, you should use our Unmanaged VPS.

With Unmanaged VPS, you can install any software that you’d like. That includes a choice of operating systems, although if you want to use cPanel the OS will need to be CentOS 7. You get unlimited bandwidth, DDoS protection, a network SLA of 99.99% and much more.
