CPanel Control Panel
The control panel is actually a bit of a revelation, it’s a cPanel (our favorite) that has been customized with a Windows XP style skin. It’s called the cPanel XP Evolution and we very much like it. The look of the standard cPanel is what most people complain about; it’s starting to look a little dated when compared to the likes of Vdeck or Plesk. However, this version gives you the best of both worlds, the class leading functionality and ease of use of the cPanel, combined with a high quality appearance. There is a full working demo on the HostMonster website , give it a try, we think you’ll like it.

HostMonster Customer Service
The crown jewel of the company that leaves their competition chasing them is their supreme customer support. They have technical support, billing support, ales support and more. HostMonster provide their customer service via live chat, email support and toll free phone support. The live chat support is the best feature in their customer service which allows users to chat online with their technical representative. Their support is 24 hours a day seven days a week. So anyone can ask about anything anytime.
