cPanel is a software solution that runs on web hosting servers and provides website owners with a fast, powerful and easy to use web based control panel all aspects of their web site and associated email accounts.

By using cPanel a website owner can not only manage their website and email accounts, they can also install hundreds of different software packages directly from within cPanel. Software such as WordPress, Joomla, eCommerce, Photo Gallery and others are installed with just a few clicks.

With cPanel you are in complete control of your web hosting account. You can access cPanel any time from any device with Internet connectivity.

Choosing a web hosting company can be a daunting task. There are literally thousands of web hosting to choose from with pricing and plans that are sure to confuse even the most seasoned web and business professional.

First and foremost, don't be fooled by the super low prices and claims of 1000s of free mailboxes, etc. For the most part those are all gimmicks. For example, if you are looking to run your business email on a shared web server and you have hundreds of email boxes you plan on running on that server you're making a huge mistake. Business class email of that size has to be run on servers dedicated to the email process, not on a server that runs multiple services.

If you are not sure if you need Windows or Linux based web hosting chances are you will do fine with Linux based hosting.

Windows based hosting is generally for very specific applications. Your web site designer should be able to tell you whether Windows or Linux web hosting is right for you site. When in doubt choose Linux.

Select Hosting's Premium Shared Hosting is ideal for customers that need support above and beyond the standard level of support and service offered with our Starter and Standard hosting plans.

The Premium hosting plan includes all of the support you would get with the other plans but provides an extra level of support designed specifically for the website owner that doesn't want to spend time learning how to use the control panel or managing the details of their site and services.

As part of the Premium Hosting Plan, we take care of a majority of the day to day and occassional management aspects of your web site and email services. We let you leverage our expertise and resources so that you can focus on doing what you should be doing -- growing your business.

This is something we can't tell you directly. Its really up to you to decide.

We think that if you do not have the time or desire to get farmilar with cPanel, and you don't want to deal with creating email accounts, or doing the occassional web site edit, then this service is for you.

For the cost of the service you'd be getting excellent value when you consider your time is worth something.

Here are some examples of how the Premium Hosting Plan compares to our other hared Hosting on a tasks basis:

Task Standard Shared Hosting Premium Shared Hosting
Adding an Email Account You login to cPanel, create the account, set the password, and test. Call Select Hosting or send a ticket into us and we do it all.
Configure Email Program You get the Server information from the welcome email that was sent when your hosting was first setup, get the new email account username and password and then manually configure your Outlook, Thunderbird or Entourage with either POP3 or IMAP settings. Call Select Hosting or send a ticket into us and we will step you through the process or remotely login to your system and setup the account on your system for you.
Change a password Login to the cPanel, locate the account, set the password, and then make the changes in your email client. Call us or send a ticket and we'll make the change for you.
Manage SPAM Protection Examine email headers, determine source of issue, decide on action plan. Call Select Hosting or send a ticket into us and we do it all.

The most important thing to remember about our Premium Hosting Plan is that it is not a web design or web site creation service. We do not design pages, create graphics or perform any programming.

The service is designed to help you manage the web site and the features of cPanel. The service is to help you be more efficient by relieving you of the burden of having to learn cPanel and the specifics of the features offered through cPanel.

The amount of service we provide as part of the Premium Plan is limited to 2 hours per month. While it is highly unlikely that anyone would exceed the 2 hours, if additional services are required we can usually provide service on an hourly basis at a discount rate.

For routine service requests we do our best to complete properly submitted requests within 24 hours excluding holidays and weekends. However we do have staff working around the clock and requests are usually handled sooner. In the event that you have an emergency and need quicker service, we provide you with a priority service code. To use your priority service code you simply open a help desk ticket as usual and then call the Priority Support line to have the ticket escalated. When you call you will be moved to the front of the call queue. If there are no agents available you will be prompted to leave a message and within 15 to 60 minutes you will receive a call from a highly qualified engineer -- not a high-volume overseas call center agent following a lame script.

The Premium Hosting Plan is available for as little as $29.95 per month when you pay for the year in advance, and comes with Unlimited Storage, Unlimited Bandwidth, Unlimited Email Accounts and much more. The Unlimited portion of the service is provided in accordance with our Fair Use Policy.

If you do not already have web hosting with us simple order our Premium Web Hostin Plan.

If you already have the Starter or Standard Hosting Plan and would like to upgrade to the Premium Plan, simply login to the Client Portal, select your current hosting plan and then choose to upgrade.

About Transferring Your Domain and Hosting

Many hosting companies say that you have to transfer your domain to them in order to host your web site with them. Although doing so sometimes makes some of the processes easier, doing so typically is not a technical requirement. Some hosting operators force you to transfer your domain registration to them so that they can have more control over the domain. At Select Hosting we never make it a requirement for you to relinquish control of your domain to us. We believe that you should be the listed owner and maintain complete control over your domain registration. In short domain registration and web site hosting do not have to be provided by the same organization.
