cPanel Continues Our Journey Around the World

Behind the walls at cPanel, we’re always looking for new challenges to undertake. We test ways to make a better product, experiment with methods to enhance our culture, and explore tactics on creating an overall better business. This year, one of the things we decided to test out was cP1Con; a traveling hosting event that incorporates the best elements of our annual cPanel Conference and condenses it into a one-day experience. With our Dallas and …

I just want a site

While talking with our partners one day, one of them said something that other users and partners confirmed repeatedly: “Customers close down their accounts for a few reasons”, the partner reported, “but the biggest one is that they just simply never got started.” They. Never. Got. Started. For many end users, they simply want to get online. Installing and managing WordPress, Drupal, or other content management systems vastly over-serves this demographic. They have very simple …

Class is in Session: The New cPanel University

Thousands of corporations and companies, and even more individuals, use the suite of tools loaded inside of cPanel & WHM to power their business and manage their online presence. From mail and spam filtering, to database storage and security, to simply just launching a website, cPanel and WHM offers a wealth of technical offerings. That being said, we’ve heard from our customers for years that they’d like a resource; a place where they …

The cPanel Development Process

One of the most common things seen on the features site is users asking for a feature request to be added to the next version of cPanel. While we do evaluate each request for inclusion in the version currently being developed, too many variable requests come through for us to include all of them. Today we wanted to talk a bit about what happens to the ones that aren’t picked up for inclusion in the …

Hi. I’m benny. How can I help?

Hi. I’m benny. I like American football (though I don’t care to remember most player names or team stats), I read (though not as often as I like), and I make things (craft, food, websites, etc). I’ve been in the hosting industry for more than 10 years, at cPanel for 2.5, and still love (nearly) all of it. I am also filling cPanel’s newest position: Community Manager. How can I help? Too often business (and …

Updated deprecation schedule for X3

Back in September 2015, we announced the impending deprecation of X3, the previous generation user interface for cPanel. Since doing so we’ve seen adoption of Paper Lantern sky-rocket. After significant feedback from our customers and stakeholders we’re revising the deprecation schedule. Originally we said that we would stop shipping the X3 theme with v58, but in our development planning meeting yesterday we decided to delay that to v60, which is a delay of 4 months …

Shh! This Service is Sleeping! Dormant Mode in cPanel & WHM version 56

When you’re running a cPanel & WHM server, you want to make sure that you get the most bang out of every bit of memory you can. To help you do this, cPanel & WHM version 56 will include additional settings to reduce unnecessary memory consumption. We’ve expanded and improved the dormant mode setting that’s available for cPanel & WHM services. Services enter dormant mode when they’ve been idle for a set amount of time, …

Password Reset for All

A key feature that has been requested by cPanel Server Administrators, cPanel Users, and End Users (Webmail, FTP, Web Disk) alike, has been the ability to reset passwords without the need for Administrator or Account Owner intervention. We have recently revamped the Password Reset process to enhance its capabilities and extend them to allow Subaccounts to reset their passwords via a self-service process. This means that Webmail, FTP, and Web Disk accounts that have been …

PHP 7 Is Here!

One of our most requested features is for PHP 7 support.  We’ve heard you loud and clear, and over the last few weeks we’ve been working to bring PHP 7 to EasyApache.  I’d like to announce that it is now available in our primary EA4 repositories. PHP 7 brings a lot of improvements to the table. One of the most notable changes are the speed improvements gained from PHPNG, the newly refactored Zend Engine …
