Behind the Scenes: cPanel 70, cPanel 72 & Mobile Portal

It has been a little while since our last behind the scenes update so I wanted to take a quick moment to share a few things.

Last week, we completed deployment of cPanel 70 to all of our servers. While there weren’t a lot of visible changes in this version, you may have noticed the new “Email Accounts” interface in cPanel.

To start, you’ll see the interface is now broken down into four different tabs that allow you to add email accounts, view / modify them, manage the default account, and manage other configuration settings. This page will default to the list view of email accounts where you’ll now see the “Access Webmail” link more prominently. You can now also select the “Manage Suspension” option to suspend or hold outgoing email for a single email account.

Within webmail under “Spam Filters”, each user can now also set a custom SpamAssassin threshold if they would like to. This way they can configure SpamAssassin to be more or less strict depending on their own needs.

Moving forward, cPanel 72 just reached the Stable build tier a few days ago and we hope to have this deployed to all severs within a couple of weeks. We’re awaiting at least one more update before moving forward. A big addition in this version is the Git Version Control feature, which allows you to easily host Git repositories on your cPanel account. They’ve also added a new in-browser terminal application that provides direct command-line access within cPanel.

And finally, we’re working on an updated mobile experience for our portal. We know that it leaves a lot to be desired currently and we hope to vastly improve that. While this won’t be available for at least a couple of months, I hope to share some screenshots with you all soon. In the meantime, we hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
