Ubuntu LTS And Full cPanel® Support

In late 2020, CentOS 8 announced that it would be reaching its end-of-life in December of 2021. This news was rather unexpected in both the open source and web hosting worlds.

NGINX® Caching And cPanel® Version 96

Caching, for our purposes here, is the temporary storage of website files in such a way (and often in various locations) that results in significantly faster website loading times for the end users. As a result, caching also reduces the overall resource usage on the server itself. In other words, when your website utilizes caching it consequently loads much faster for your visitors. NGINX caching is now officially supported in cPanel; let’s talk a little …

How To Use PuTTY SSH With cPanel®

cPanel & WHM’s intuitive web interfaces make it easy to manage servers and web hosting accounts. However, it’s occasionally useful to work on a server’s command line instead. The PuTTY SSH (Secure Shell) client allows you to log in to a server’s command line interface shell over an encrypted connection so that sensitive data isn’t exposed on the internet. Once logged in, you can access the full suite of Linux command-line tools, interact with the

WP Toolkit Lite vs WP Toolkit Deluxe: A Feature Comparison

Late last year, we brought WP Toolkit to cPanel & WHM. It’s a brand new WordPress management solution that empowers hosting providers and resellers to offer a comprehensive modern interface for managing any number of WordPress sites. Even better, WP Toolkit is integrated with cPanel alongside the powerful site management tools users already know and love.

AlmaLinux And Full cPanel® Support

When it was announced in late 2020 that CentOS 8 would reach its end-of-life in December of 2021, both the open source and web hosting worlds were understandably taken a bit by surprise. With this in mind, we are very pleased to announce that cPanel & WHM® version 94 will fully support AlmaLinux immediately upon its launch date (March 30, 2021). Being day 1 partners with AlmaLinux is not only a …

Business Email And The Power Of Email Forwarders

Everyone has an email address these days. And the email address you use does, to a certain extent, say a lot about you. For example, yourname@gmail.com conveys a different message than pizzalover123@gmail.com… with our apologies to anyone that may actually be the owner of either of those email addresses. While your personal email address is generally different from your business email address, a similar set of parameters do exist that convey certain things about you …

How To Build An Effective Landing Page For Reseller Hosting

They say you never have a second chance to make a first impression, and that goes double for competitive industries like web hosting. Getting potential customers to your website is challenging enough, but once they click, you have only seconds to engage their attention with something more appealing than the social media stream, email, or search result page they were browsing moments ago.  That’s where landing pages shine. An effective landing page can make all …

The DNS Zone For Beginners

For all intents and purposes, DNS can be considered almost like the internet’s phonebook. At least that’s how it’s most often metaphorically explained. However, your domain’s DNS zone is slightly less like an old yellow pages and much more like the saved contacts list within your cell phone. You enter a phone number and a name to go with the phone number, hit save and then you can promptly forget the phone number because you’ll …
