cPanel is a website management interface that uses lots of graphics, so it’s easy to use, even for complete beginners.
When you have a website (or three), your email accounts can really pile up, and it can be hard to keep track of everything on your own.
cPanel’s email management system lets you manage all your email accounts, change your passwords whenever you want, and tweak your settings whenever you want.
This is a great way to stay on top of your email.
5. Microsoft hosted exchange
Hosted exchange is a Microsoft product that helps keep you organized and helps you stay in touch with all your important contacts.
With hosted exchange, you get email, calendar and task management services from Microsoft, and you can access all your account wherever you are, and on whatever device you’re using.
When companies actually buy Microsoft Exchange, they install it on a server on their property, but this can get expensive fast, especially if you don’t have piles of cash stashed away somewhere.
When you get hosted exchange, it uses a private server, so you don’t have to worry about security issues. With Microsoft Exchange Emails, your data is secure and you can get it whenever you need it. This is one of our best web hosting services, because you get the full benefits of Microsoft Exchange without paying the exorbitant server operation fees.
6. SSL Certificates
SSL certificates encrypt your visitors’ data, so their information doesn’t get compromised by hackers when they visit your website. Having an SSL certificate also lets people know your website is safe to visit.
If you have an eCommerce website, you already know how important it is to have an SSL certificate. If you don’t have one, nobody will trust you with their credit card information, which means your sales will be dramatically reduced.
But even if you don’t have an eCommerce website, people are careful about leaving their computers vulnerable to hackers. When you don’t have an SSL certificate, when someone tries to visit your site, their browser displays a message letting them know that your site is unsafe. With so many websites to choose from, this is a really preventable way to give your competitors an edge.
That extra boost in credibility is invaluable to you, especially when your website is new. No wonder it made our best web hosting services for 2020.

This way, if anything happens to your “real” website, you have a backup ready to deploy. All your hard work stays safe and protected.

9. Domain registration
When your computer needs to find a website, it doesn’t look for the name that you type into your search bar. Your computer stores websites according to their IP address.
An IP address is a long string of numbers and dots that represents each website on the internet. Most people don’t even know their grandparents’ phone numbers. They’re not going to remember all the numbers and dots that make up your website when they already have tons of websites they love visiting.
To make it easy for people to find your website, you register a domain name, which is the name that shows up in your browser.
Without a domain, nobody would be able to find your website. That’s why domain registration is one of our best web hosting services.
