cPanel is the most popular web hosting control panel used by nearly every shared hosting provider out there. This is mainly due its ease of use, long term reputation and regular maintenance and security updates. If you are new webmaster, I would strongly advise to go for only those web hosting which are powered by cPanel. If you have not yet bought web hosting for your website, I highly recommend Hostgator shared web hosting. Hostgator is the most popular web hosting company and I have used them for over 8 years now. I have tried more than a dozen hosts over the years including shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS and dedicated servers and I am yet to find a host comparable to Hostgator in terms of pricing and support.
