cPanel hosting is quite popular nowadays. We have to make a distinction between popularity among website owners and popularity among web hosts. Website owners love it simply because it is very simple to use.
Web hosts on the other hand use it because of the fact that users like it, and because of the features it has. It allows them to allocate a certain amount of disk space to their hosting plans, it includes database administration tools, different statistics regarding websites, a high level of security by setting up passwords to protect certain directories and last but not least it has some great advanced features (like PHP, Perl, Cron Jobs). A great cPanel web host is InMotionHosting.
vDeck is somewhat different from the above mentioned. Of course the main difference is in looks, but there are feature differences too. Navigating this control panel is quite easy too, just like cPanel, but some features that can be found in cPanel are not present here. For example we cannot find Cron Jobs. It has an easy solution for website management – providing a free site builder and FTP tools.
E-mail and domain management, ecommerce and marketing tools are all part of the control panel. All in all we can say that vDeck has all the necessary features needed to run websites, however cPanel can satisfy more special needs. A nice example for vDeck hosting is a web host called Fatcow.
No matter what control panel your host has, this is not the most important factor when deciding on a web host. The technical and human environment is more important.
