Is your cPanel’s interface looking all messy and dated? cPanel has an upcoming theme that can relax your eyes and help you organize your thoughts while you navigate your control panel. It’s a clean and fresh cPanel version—the Paper Lantern Theme.


So What’s In It For You?


A lot actually. The Paper Lantern offers a chic and modern feel to the users. With its fresh and sleek design, this edition indeed shows that simple is beautiful. It also features beautiful icons and tab designs as well as quick links for easy access. Editing a website is so much easier and quicker with the latest version of Paper Lantern as it offers friendly user controls and how-to instructions. So even if you don’t have much knowledge about managing and editing a website, you can now easily do web coding without hiring a pro.


One of the main problems and complaints of users when using cPanel is that the interface makes it hard for them to use it. However, with the new edition of Paper Lantern, this is no longer a problem as the tech geeks focused on making a theme that even someone who does not understand coding can still customize and navigate his website. And lastly, search time is faster than ever before. Thanks to the installation of quick links, you can finish changing your settings or editing your website in no time.


How to Use the Paper Lantern


Before anything else, let’s make it clear to everyone that the latest edition of the Paper Lantern (as of this article) is still on its process of completion.
