Great new Control Panel setup. Well done!
I really love the new control panel, the whole layout is much easier to navigate. The upload speed is much faster and I really enjoy the look and feel of the new site.
The new control panel is so much better. I think this one has much more control over files and how they are controled compared to the previous one.
New set up works very well for me i have found it really easy to use so far once i got used to it, thanks for a great job on the upgrade.
MUCH faster! MUCH more user-friendly! I LOVE the new control panel!

The New Control Panel! I like it. It's much more professional than the previous one and easy to navigate around. I haven't spotted any errors yet.
Just a short note to say that the new control panel seems easier to work with than the old one. eep up the good work.
Love everything so far about the new Control Panel. Much more intuitive than before.
Each web address (aka URL
) on the World Wide Web is characterized by certain syntax where we could recognize the separate levels within the DNS
The first level is presented by top-level domains (TLDs), followed by domain names at the second level and subdomains - at the third.
Table of Contents:
Of all three levels - subdomains boast the greatest flexibility, since they are created entirely at users' discretion (in contrast to TLDs which are pre-defined by certified registrars) and allow a great variety of copies (in contrast to domain names which have only one version).
What is a subdomain?
To give you an example of a subdomain, we will use the web address of our NTC Hosting blog:
In this URL syntax we could recognize .COM
as the top-level domain (TLD), 'ntchosting' as the second-level domain name
and 'blog' as the subdomain. Following the logic of the hierarchical order of web addresses it could be concluded that the subdomain is a sublevel/subdirectory of the larger second-level domain. In this sense, the syntax of a subdomain is much more dependent on what the contents of the domain are than on the type of TLD chosen for the particular web address.
Why use a subdomain?
The most common use of subdomains is for organizing information within a website. By using subdomains, it is possible for website
owners to better differentiate separate portions of their website contents, assigning a unique name to each one of them. Subdomains are especially useful for websites of organizations or companies helping them better organize their website contents in correspondence to their hierarchy or structure of services offered, respectively.
For instance, the website of a university (e.g. university.edu) may have a subdomain for each of its faculties (e.g. faculty-of-law.university.edu, faculty-of-history.university.edu, etc.), while a company website may feature a number of subdomains dedicated to each of its departments - sales.companyname.com
Another popular use of subdomains is for identifying individual computers with their own IP address
. For instance, a company could have two separate servers named sales.companyname.com
each one of them containing information about the particular company department it serves.
It is also possible for multiple subdomains to be assigned to different computers containing the same information. This is especially useful for intensively loaded websites to provide back-up for the currently overloaded original machine by sending visitors to an alternative subdomain (i.e. machine).
