How to Manage Inode Quotas and Control Inode Usage

The CentOS operating system has several features that restrict users’ resource consumption. They help web hosts and server administrators to fairly distribute resources on shared servers and to create tiered account systems. Without quotas, rogue users can—accidentally or deliberately—use more than their fair share, hurting their neighbors’ web hosting performance. Inode quotas limit the number of files a user can create. In this article, we explore what inodes are, how to display inode quotas in …

What is a Yat? Emoji Identifiers Explained

Many of the most complex systems on the web deal with naming and identity verification. If you manage a website, you’re already familiar with web URLs, IP addresses, signed SSL certificates, and perhaps cryptocurrency addresses. But what if you could have a single name that links to all of your online identities, an identifier that is uniquely yours and tied to your social media handles and domain names? And what if, instead of web addresses …

Introducing Jupiter – A New Look For cPanel

Creating a new theme for cPanel is no small task. We knew we had to not only keep what our current users love, but also provide an easy-to-use format for newer users. We want you to be able to find the tools you need (and any help you may need) without delay. This is what led us to develop two main pages for Jupiter – the Tools page and the Solutions page. The Main Menu allows you to easily switch between these two pages. The Tools …

Synchronizing Your cPanel® Calendar, Contacts, and Email on Android with ActiveSync

Starting in v98, cPanel & WHM added support for Android-based mobile devices to interact with calendars and contacts via ActiveSync. What is ActiveSync? Microsoft® originally developed the Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) protocol—commonly known as ActiveSync—for use by mobile devices in combination with its Exchange Server. The protocol uses a lightweight version of XML called WBXML to optimize traffic for the frequently slow and unreliable connections that may be encountered on cellular networks and public …

Secure Your cPanel Server With SSH Keys And Public Key Cryptography

cPanel & WHM is a complete server management solution, but you may occasionally need to log in to your server’s shell to run scripts or edit configuration options on the command line. The most secure way to remotely log in is with SSH. An SSH client on your local computer connects to a daemon on the server. SSH encrypts the commands you send to the server and the information it sends back. When you log …

What Is An NFT? Non-Fungible Tokens Explained

NFTs (non-fungible tokens) hit the headlines recently when an artist named Beeple sold a digital image collage for $69 million. Depending on your taste in art, you might find Beeple’s image compelling, but would you pay millions for it? After all, you can “own” a copy of Everydays — The First 5000 Days by downloading the constituent images (although you might violate copyright laws).  That’s the problem NFTs …

What Is a Decentralized Domain Name System?

The domain name system (DNS) is a part of the internet’s plumbing users may not often think about unless it stops working. It’s a different story for web hosting providers and site owners; they deal with DNS directly because they depend on it to translate human-friendly web addresses into machine-friendly IP addresses. Every website has a domain name registered with a domain name registrar. The registrars work with registry operators, which manage registries—databases of domain …
