Some of the features that I found interesting on the Control panel were:
- a phpMyAdmin interface
- a ftp site
- any number of email addresses
- a single domain name
The domain name takes 48 hrs to be available, till then the site provides a temporary url to access to the site. That was a welcome feel.
Update: I was under the impression that hosting the site includes registration of domain name with the hosting service. But I was wrong. It comes with additional of $15/yr to register a domain name. So I'll be using the temporary url till my site implements some cool functionality.
