Is cPanel Hard To Learn?

Post by Pariah »

I have been seeing a lot of jobs locally that I would qualify for but for my ignorance of cPanel. How hard is that to learn and understand.
Pointers to good online tutorials encouraged.

I know that my cPanel looks like this.

Most of it is just making changes to how my site is used.

Do you mean installing it or using it?

It's actually really simple. It behaves pretty much like the system preferences for any computer.

Sign up for a web hosting account. They're about $5 per month, and you can learn cPanel within a short time. I'd estimate less than one month, and likely significantly less. I remember when I first signed up for web hosting and first used cpanel(probably the early 2000s), and I was really shocked at how easy it was.

in my experience, it's pretty darn straightforward

so much so that you could probably say you know it then learn it as you go

It's one of those things that I would almost advocate doing that, if it weren't less than $10 to actually try it out.

Thanks all.
I am going to look into this. I feel like doing something less industrial going forward and I think 61 is a good age for a career change.
It seems like the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area is a hot bed of web hosts and misc internet companies. Lots of entry level openings and all are Linux based.
