2. File Structure
Managing a lot of domains and sites from one hosting account must be simple and easy. In the SoftNet Hosting Control Panel, every single domain and subdomain is located in a standalone directory and is totally independent from the other.
With the cPanel Control Panel, you have just one directory for your primary web site and all of the other web sites are placed within this folder. This makes handling an array of web sites from a single interface very confusing.

The SoftNet Hosting File Manager is made to operate just like your desktop computer file explorer. Including attributes such as drag–n–drop file uploading, right click context menus, zip/unarchive options, etcetera., it’ll make manipulating your data files quick and simple.

The File Manager of cPanel is slow and constrained in features. Uploading multiple data files demands a considerable amount of time and and won’t include drag–n–drop support. The in–built archive/unarchive tool is not reliable and the file managing tools supply you with just general controls. There is no fast access to the included file managing functionalities.
