TLS Changes in Version 68

In order to further our general goal of making cPanel & WHM as secure as possible out of the box, beginning with version 68 new installs will default to TLS 1.2, with TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.0 being disabled. You will be able to manually enable them if you need to after the install, but we’re defaulting to a more secure environment. Servers that have upgraded to version 68 will retain the existing settings until …

Improvements to cPanel Account Package Extensions

cPanel & WHM is a very powerful piece of software, that allows server managers to more easily manage their servers. The real power, though, comes from its extendability. In most webhosting environments, cPanel accounts are built using Account Packages. To help cPanel & WHM integrators, we released a new feature four years ago, in cPanel & WHM version 11.40, called package extensions. Package extensions allow our technology partners like CloudLinux to extend cPanel account packages to include …

Pricing with a Purpose

We’ve been a technology company for a while now — more than 20 years, in fact. That’s 20 years of watching servers shrink, machine processing power grow, and thousands of companies spawn from the capabilities the Information Age has given us. That being said, we’re not only happy to have been a part of all of this evolution, but we’re proud of the role we’ve played in giving hundreds-of-thousands of hosting providers a …

New SSL Notifications in v68

File restoration in cPanel & WHM Version 68

Version 68 was released this week, and I want to talk to you about one of the most exciting new features: As both an end-user and as a server administrator you can now restore individual files from an account backup! Let’s take a look at how it works as of version 68. Step 1: Have available backups Before you can restore from an account backup, you must first have backups already made. To enable backups, go …

Kernel-based symlink protection for all, thanks to CloudLinux

For many years web hosts have fought to provide adequate protection against a vulnerability called a “Symlink Attack”. At cPanel we prefer a kernel-based solution, and have historically provided both Apache based protection, and our Hardened Kernel to help server administrators. Last year we began discussing with CloudLinux the potential for them to offer this protection to server administrators as part of KernelCare. A few weeks ago …
