Why Managed over cPanel
At Liquid Web, like many other web hosts, we have offered a hosting plan that comes with cPanel. If you don't know what cPanel is, it's a control panel that lets you auto-install software and configure it in a lot of different ways.
Our cPanel solution has been optimized for WordPress - to the extent that it makes sense. After all, the cPanel approach is one where we leave you more in charge of your solution. In the old days, this was the only way you had access to the server or database. But our new managed WordPress solution gives you SSH access and the ability to connect to phpMyAdmin, if you need it.
For a long time cPanel was the way to go. Today, however, we think there's a better approach.
Optimizing what you care about most
Our Managed Portal goes beyond a control panel. Whether it's checking code before changing PHP versions, or doing visual comparisons of your site before and after plugin updates, this is not something you get with cPanel.
By constraining the environment for consistency, we can introduce performance optimizations that aren't available with your cPanel version — like image compression and optimization. your site will load so fast you'll think it's magic.
Full Server Access
cPanel used to be the way you got low-level access to your sites. Today we offer SFTP & SSH access to your files and phpMyAdmin access for your database and its tables. Our Managed Portal now gets you all the access you've ever really wanted.
