Girls in ICT at Baker College

Every year cPanel shows our support for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education in a bunch of different ways, but we don’t often talk about it. It’s incredibly important to us that we help get young people involved in technology early, and we recognize that everyone isn’t presented with the same opportunities. Besides, who can resist the delight of a child who’s learned something new? Last week I had the pleasure of meeting 60 …

Securing your site; Comodo, cPanel, & AutoSSL

It’s been nearly four years since we began working with Comodo to make the entire internet safer and more secure. Thanks to that partnership SSL adoption on cPanel servers is higher than ever before. With cPanel & WHM version 56 we introduced the Market Provider, and began adding Comodo-signed hostname SSLs to cPanel & WHM servers. In version 58 we added AutoSSL to install those same free SSLs on all hosted domains automatically. With version …

How and Why to Build an EDGE Server

In a recent post about our LTS tier changes coming in 2017, I talked a bit about our different tiers and how they’re used. Today I want to explain why now is the perfect time to build a test server on the cPanel & WHM EDGE tier. What is the EDGE tier? The EDGE tier is always the most recent build of the newest version of cPanel & WHM. During our

cPanel’s tiered update system; New plans for the LTS tier

cPanel & WHM’s tiered update system has long allowed us to release new versions and features in stages. Each tier provides us access to a different type of feedback from a specific segment of our user-base. The EDGE tier is a non-production tier that allows us to incorporate feedback from our users in an earlier and more actionable stage of our development cycle, and gives third party developers a chance to test their applications against …
