cPanel & WHM Version 68 has now reached the STABLE tier! There are a ton of new features that you may or may not have heard of. Let’s run through some of them!
Restore any single file from your cPanel account backups!
You can now easily restore files from any locally hosted cPanel account backup. We walk you through it in this blog post from last month!
Updated and Expanded API Token and Reseller Permissions
Permissions available for API tokens and resellers have been updated and expanded, to allow you to more granularly control what your users and token can do. The full list of updated and added permissions can be found in the cPanel & WHM version 68 release notes.
Potential Spammer Notification!
Spam is one of the hardest things to combat on any web hosting environment. We’re helping make server administrators even more aware of potential abuse on their server with this brand new notification.
New SSL notifications and AutoSSL user controls!
In version 68 we’ve added more communication around SSL and now cPanel users can see domain statuses and even trigger AutoSSL from their SSL/TLS Status interface. Read all about it in this post on the cPanel blog.
Virtuozzo 7 Support
Virtuozzo 7 is a fantastic tool for many of our web hosting providers, and we’re happy to be able to add full support for Virtuozzo 7 to cPanel & WHM’s list of supported platforms.
We have made it easier than ever for your clients to find you!
In version 68 cPanel & WHM server owners and web hosting resellers can now add public contact information, making it easier for their clients to get in contact with them!
EasyApache 4 migration tool
Since version 62 anyone on the CURRENT tier has been able to use this migration tool inside WHM to move to EA4. With more than 80% of cPanel & WHM servers migrated to EA4, and EasyApache 3’s End of Life defined for December 2018, we have made this interface available to all users.
Improved integration API calls around Package Extensions
For integrators that make use of our Package Extensions, they’ll find our new API calls extremely helpful. Read all about it in this blog post from last month!
Now closer to PCI compliance by default
PCI Compliance is a pain point for many server administrators. In version 68 we’re reducing the number of things you have to adjust to get to PCI compliance by defaulting to TLS 1.2 on new servers.
Check out the cPanel Release site to see an overview of the latest features and updates cPanel & WHM has to offer! All of the details about all cPanel & WHM Version 68 features can be found in the Release Notes.
Additionally, this is a reminder that cPanel & WHM version 62 will be the only LTS version of 2017, and that both versions 64 and 66 are now End of Life. For more information, see the cPanel blog post from last year about the LTS changes.
