cPanel SSH Access - Port Changed

Please note that all cPanel servers now use the default SSH port 22.

This change has now been introduced as a followup to the implementation of the BitNinja security suite, allowing for more convenient connections to SSH.

BitNinja - Site Protection now AVAILABLE

Until now, BitNinja has worked in the background to protect your sites from a wide range of attacks, malware, brute force and more.

We are now pleased to announce the release of BitNinja 'Site Protection', which is a plugin available within cPanel. This gives you full visibility on the scale of the attacks found within your site or application and is available free of charge to all clients.

Email Delivery Limits

Due to a number of abuse cases, we have been forced to revise our current configuration, limits and policies in terms of outbound mail.

As part of that revision, we will be decreasing our sending limit per account to 75/hour.

On checking through our service delivery statistics, for genuine usage, we anticipate less than 2% of accounts to be affected by the change globally.

The new limits ensure that we are able to continue to provide MailChannels, which we know remains ever-popular within our hosting solutions.

Performance Improvements

We have rolled out some minor changes to our Apache / mod_lsapi configuration to improve overall performance.

  • Removed mod_security (now replaced by BitNinja)
  • Replaced mpmworker with mpmevent
  • Enabled memcache on all PHP versions
  • Tuned CRIU / Checkpoint Restore in Userspace

DirectAdmin - Now with JetBackups

We are excited to announce the release of the incredible JetBackup solution on our DirectAdmin reseller plans!

You are now able to easily manage your client's backups and restores right from within DirectAdmin!

cPanel Reseller - Neo 150 & Smart 200 Plans

We are pleased to announce that we have now made available a 'Neo 150' & 'Smart 200' plan for our cPanel Reseller Hosting.

This has been introduced to ease the upgrade from the Pro 100 plan, rather than requiring an increase directly to the Platinum 250.

This product is available as an 'Upgrade' for any users on plans 100 or lower.
