cPanel & WHM
cPanel provides an intuitive interface to help website owners manage their sites, while WebHost Manager (WHM) automates server management tasks for server administrators. Together, they reduce overhead by simplifying complex tasks and allowing customers to manage their own accounts. Professionals and novices alike love the power cPanel and WHM offers, including the ability to activate new web technologies with the click of a mouse. This allows companies to meet the needs of today's hosting customers with minimal effort.
Since 1997, cPanel has been a leading innovator and developer of control panel software for the web hosting industry. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, cPanel builds software that allows web host professionals to transform standalone servers into fully automated point-and-click web hosting platforms. cPanel licensed software allows owners of servers and websites, along with resellers and developers, to optimize their technical resources and replace tedious shell-oriented tasks with dynamic, intuitive Web-based interfaces.

The cPanel interface is intuitive and includes video tutorials and on-screen help. This allows hosting customers to manage their own accounts without needing to contact your support staff for assistance.
cPanel is self-monitoring. If it detects a failed service, it will automatically attempt to restart that service. Plus, recent improvements to our software (including our DNS clustering system) provide even more hassle-free, robust performance. WHM will also notify you via email, IM or text message of problems that could affect your server's reliability. This way, you can perform preventative maintenance to keep your server running.
cPanel and WHM includes the latest technologies to help keep your server secure. Our software offers virus protection, rootkit detection and a host of other tools to allow you to lock down your server. It even helps protect against current threats such as XSRF ("sea surfing") and XSS attacks. WHM's Security Center allows you to easily configure different security settings.
With cPanel and WHM, you're in control of your server. You choose which versions of Apache and PHP to run, which applications handle services such as DNS, and a wide variety of other functionality. You can also disable any feature of cPanel for specific users.
Website owners can password-protect portions of their sites and have the accounts of visitors who share their passwords automatically deactivated. Our software also offers hotlink protection and the ability to deny problem IP addresses.
While cPanel is user-friendly, it also offers powerful features to web developers, while isolating them from performing any task that affects other users on the server. Web developers can install their own PHP PEAR packages, Perl modules and RoR applications via cPanel. They can also select which version of PHP to use (PHP 4 or PHP 5). A code editor is built into cPanel's File Manager for the developer on the go.
