Building a Better Tomorrow

Being a Transgender Woman In Tech Behind every piece of software is a team of developers, each with their own interesting story more complex than the code they script each day. At cPanel, we like to take the time to not only acknowledge the work they do for our product, but for a few special individuals, the work they also do for the world at large.

cPanel Transparency Initiatives

Transparency reports are customer driven: your customers want to know in what circumstances you might disclose their data to governments. Governments also want to know how you manage their requests.

What the duck? A/B Testing at #cPConf 2017

You know that feeling of relief you get when you finish a big marketing project? You did everything right, the bosses seem satisfied, and you feel like you can kick back and relax.
