The feedback we’ve received from you, the cPanel Community, has been great! For those of you that have been using the experimental version of NGINX, there have been several add-on features that have been requested we add to NGINX to make it more viable. While we’re still a long ways …

Our goal is to provide a more seamless experience for anyone who integrates with cPanel & WHM.  What is an API, and who uses …

Update to Account-Based Pricing

Late last week, we announced a new licensing and pricing structure for cPanel. This change was the result of several months of conversations and modeling to ensure we understood as many use cases for cPanel & WHM hosting as possible. In the days following our announcement, we have heard from many of our Partners, both online and on the phone, and the feedback has been clear. Our analysis of use cases was incomplete, …

cPanel Application Manager and App Deployment 101

Researching another piece I’ve been writing, I realized that I was grossly unfamiliar with a portion of the cPanel & WHM product. For a bit of background, I’ve been using cPanel & WHM for about nine years now, mostly from the end user and system administrator perspectives. Admittedly, I am not a developer, nor do I pretend to be one. Between you and me, I have immense respect for developers and the dark arts magic that …

Welcoming WHMCS to the WebPros Family

It is with great affection that I get to share news of an addition to the WebPros family. Starting today, WHMCS joins us as part of this exciting and growing group of companies that power the hosting industry.   Years ago, cPanel and WHMCS began a partnership to improve integration and support between the companies, and the software we build. As a result, cPanel and WHMCS have enjoyed an incredible working relationship for nearly 7 years. So close, in …

Gotta Go Faster: How Installation Times Improved

If you’ve performed a fresh cPanel & WHM installation recently, you may have noticed how much faster the process is. Aside from a lot of under the hood magic (no, not really), an impressive amount of work and planning over multiple years of cPanel & WHM was required. Currently, the time to install cPanel & WHM on a brand new server is averaging between 3 and 15 minutes. That’s a pretty drastic reduction from the 60-90 …
