Pismo Beach, CA (PressExposure) June 06, 2009 -- John Pfost is pleased to announce the release of his new book, the âWebmasterâs Guide to cPanel.â This book shows Webmasters and Web site developers how to harness the power of the preeminent control panel â cPanelÂ® â in managing their hosted Web sites. This book is excellent for anyone who wants to learn and apply the basic and sophisticated tools available in cPanel.
There is much more to developing a Web presence than choosing a domain name, applying a template, writing some content, and adding navigation menus. There are a multitude of tasks related to developing, managing, and maintaining Web sites that are required. Often these technologies must be gleaned haphazardly from vast resources or learned by trial and error. On the other hand, most Web services hosting providers â those fine folks who make our sites available to the world â include control panels that allow us to easily manage and maintain our sites. The most popular control panel â cPanelÂ® â includes an extensive array of features that when fully understood can save many hours of frustration.
cPanel is a site configuration and management software application provided by many Web hosting providers that allows users to control a multitude of functions related to their hosted Web site experience. cPanel includes some 70+ specific functions grouped into 9 categories. Most of these functions include numerous other options that vastly extend your ability to easily create productive, useful and secure Web sites.
Using cPanelâs very friendly graphical interface, you can easily manage nearly everything related to your hosted Web site account, including: Account Preferences, Mail Accounts, Web Site Files, System Logs and Statistics, Web Site Security, Web Site Domains, Web Site Databases, Software and Services, and Advanced Configurations.
cPanel is not an application that you must purchase and download, but rather is included in the hosting services packages of many â but not all - hosting providers. Hosting packages that include cPanel is a common criterion for selecting one hosting provider over another.
About The âWebmasterâs Guide to cPanelâ It provides everything that you need to get started using cPanel. Each feature and function is thoroughly described and supported by examples and step-by-step instructions.
Each category of features is presented in its own chapter that smoothly follows the layout of the cPanel interface. The content and structure of the book are refreshing and allow for an easy grasp of the concepts. The book is supplemented with several appendices (including a glossary of terms), a detailed table of contents, and a comprehensive index.
If you are new to hosted Web sites, Webmastering, Web site development, or cPanel â this is a must-have book. The value of the content and time saved in implementing any feature or function will pay for the book. If you are a seasoned Webmaster and existing user of cPanel, the book will be a welcome reference for ongoing site management activities.
