The matrix consists of cPanel features categorized according to their function. The first part is composed of Features Overview, a set of information highlighting server’s information summary like disk space, bandwidth, POP3/IMAP accounts, mail client configuration, and many more.


Aside from showing an overview, the matrix tool also has the Database Administration category, which contains database-related programs like MySQL, Postgres and remote database control.


The last parts have Statistics, FTP, Advance Features and Security. By knowing these details, you will have a list of needed features tailored for specific clients.
