Here we have the HostGator cPanel control panel for a test-drive before you make any purchase. As a new customer, you should always get aquinted to the hosting control panel you are going to buy/use. Try out this HostGator demo and get used to the various configuration options and features you would expect on HostGator shared hosting plans (including the Hatchling and Baby plans). However, do not judge the performance and speed from this demo as the performance always depends on actual load and a bunch of other factors affecting server resources.
cPanel features and options you see on this HostGator demo are almost the same with what you see with any other host’s cPanel. However, I have noticed, the HostGator control panel has a lot of options available which are usually disabled in the cPanel of other hosts.
Do check the way domains (and addon domains), sub-domains and databases are setup. Also have a look at the email accounts setup and file manager. They are the most important features to play around on a hosting control panel.
