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. I remember that feeling, as it lulled me into a false sense of security. Everything seemed great, I had sorted out all of our problems, and everyone treated me like I was the company rock star. Until six months later… The honeymoon …

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 …

Each day the exhibit floor was filled …

Platinum Satisfaction Guaranteed

In the technology sphere, many of us typify the 90s and early 2000s as the age of the internet boom. The dotcom bonanza that swept the globe during this time, which gave birth to such things as AOL and Napster, also spawned what was the congruent rise for web hosting and the need for server management. Among those at the helm of the hosting movement were John and Ethan, founders of Platinum …

Scared Rabbit | An Unexpected Journey into Web Hosting

The trope of the tech nerd turned internet rockstar is one we’ve heard time and time again in the past few years. However, in the case of one of our own cPanel & WHM users, Aaron Hiatt, this storyline seemed to happen in reverse. Migrating from lead guitarist of a rock band to the frontman of his own digital and print agency, Hiatt and his company, Scared Rabbit, truly illustrate how diverse …
