cPanel to exhibit at the annual industry conference, HostingCon 2012.
cPanel will once again be exhibiting at HostingCon 2012. This annual conference is exciting for cPanel, because it allows us to see many old friends and make new friends.
If you are looking for cPanel at HostingCon, you can find us at booths #728 and #713. We are grouping the booths together for a lounge and we are ready to meet with cPanel fans.
cPanel will be offering the cPanel University (cPU) Certification at the conference. “I am very pleased with the industry’s response to cPanel Certification,” said Eric Ellis, cPanel Support Manager and lead on cPU. “We are already getting people lined up for testing at HostingCon.”
Don’t miss cPanel at HostingCon.
Remember to register for our party.
cPanel exhibited at the GoDaddy’s Techfest on June 19th, 2012. This conference was different from any other show cPanel has participated in before. Techfest is an internal only conference, meaning that only GoDaddy Employees participated in the event. GoDaddy Employees responded to cPanel representatives with a happy face and welcomed them to the show. Over 750 GoDaddy Employees attended the event, and almost everyone stopped by the cPanel booth.
“Techfest was an exciting event that packed a large amount of people into a short time,” said Support Manager, Eric Ellis. “I thoroughly enjoyed this conference and cannot wait to come again.”
This one day conference was held in Scottsdale, Arizona and cPanel is a proud sponsor.
The happy hour brought many familiar faces to the cPanel group and quite a few new ones excited by cPanel presence. GoDaddy brought Old West style pictures and revolver quick draw competitions in the spirit of Wild West Domains.
cPanel is looking forward to next years Techfest!

The information in this post is about a project in motion. The final delivery may differ from what is discussed here, especially as we consider the feedback you have.
Update: the changes discussed in this article are delayed until a future version of cPanel & WHM. They are not in version 11.34.
Our last article discussed changing from compile-on-demand to delivery of pre-compiled binary packages, using the RPM format. A primary driver behind this was our use of perl. To deliver perl via pre-built RPM packages required a number of changes to the product.
For many years installing and using cPanel & WHM has involved compiling software on-demand. Want Apache and PHP? Run /scripts/easyapache, which builds those and all dependencies from source. Want perl installed? Download and run the perl installer from httpupdate.cpanel.net, which installs perl from source. While compiling from source has its benefits, it also has its drawbacks.
With cPanel & WHM 11.28 the ability for server owners to provide custom webmail applications was introduced. To demonstrate this feature we introduced the Atmail Open plugin.
Recently Atmail Inc., the creators of Atmail Open, decided to no longer provide the open source version of their product. Due to this change, cPanel will no longer distribute, or provide, the Atmail Open plugin via our Plugin service. The last update, 1.0.5, of the plugin was released in early May 2012. If you have not already, please verify your version of the plugin has been updated. The Atmail Open 1.0.5 release addresses some security issues. Continue reading

cPanel has released new builds for all public update tiers. These updates provide targeted changes to address security concerns with the cPanel & WHM product. These builds are currently available to all customers via the standard update system. If your deployed cPanel & WHM servers are configured to automatically update when new releases are available, then no action is required. Your systems will update automatically. If you have disabled automatic updates, then you are highly encouraged to update your cPanel & WHM installs at your earliest convenience. Continue reading
cPanel is very excited about the HostingCon debut of cPanel University! cPanel University is a cPanel Certification that you can use to brag about how much you know about cPanel & WHM.
