Perl-ing 101 & GIT Training

Forever aspiring to evolve and learn more, some of our team got a chance to intensively learn about Perl over four solid days last April, followed by GIT training and testing in May. brian d. foy, a longtime Perl devotee and author, came to cPanel and taught a Perl 101 class. While it may come second nature to some of you, that isn’t always the case, so we were thrilled to have one of the …

WHIR Mixer, Phoenix Style

After visiting with a partner in Phoenix, cPanel co-sponsored a WHIR mixer event on April 18th, a first for our new Account Manager, Linda. Business cards were exchanged, and door prizes weren’t your average swag. People walked away winning an Apple Tv, headphones, and a Roku. …

Motherboards are My Shoes

We can break down all of the web traffic into one of two categories. These categories have nothing to do with the device we choose to access the web: no it’s something much more instinctual than that. For all of our achievements, at the end of the day we are still nothing more than hunters and gatherers. When we are in ‘gatherer’ mode, we as users ‘know’ what we want…we just don’t know ‘what’ we …

EasyApache and Tomcat 7

Coming Soon to an EasyApache installation near you – Tomcat 7! Some things in life get better with age; wine, a classic car, cheese, and fine art. Sadly, Tomcat 5.5 isn’t one of them.

Tell them about the Twinkie

We have started on this ‘path’ of redesigning cPanel’s current primary theme called x3. We have even gone so far as to begin calling this new project x4. When Egon is explaining to Winston that the coming psychokinetic activity would be a Twinkie…”thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds”, Winston simply replies, “Thats a big Twinkie.” The redesign of cPanel into x4 is, well, a big Twinkie. The home page …

You’re my boy, Blue!

One of the first things you will notice in the new cPanel interface is a concentrated effort to make the work flow as clear and discernible as possible. Keeping that in mind, each page of cPanel/WHM has one ‘primary’ action that is easily recognizable. For example, the change password page has one action, but it might be overlooked. While the user is asked to enter the old password, and then the new password twice, the …

Foundations and Beginnings

We’ve pulled the cPanel mobile apps from the store, but retained these posts for historical accuracy “To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I’m working on the foundation.” – Marilyn Monroe It’s probably safe to say, this is the first article about UI/UX that you have ever read that quoted Marilyn Monroe. cPanel has been at the forefront of the managed hosting business since its inception, and …
