cPanel puts the power of technology in your hands by providing a rich and reliable set of features that enable you to spend more time on your business and less time tinkering with tech.
Sure, it’s popular with developers and hosts, but cPanel is also user-friendly enough for business owners to manage on their own. So, if cPanel is unchartered territory for you, here are three essential reasons you should get to know it a little bit better.
Enhanced & Easy-To-Use Email Features
No one has time to filter their inbox for the pestering mails that manage to slip through mailbox rules every day.
cPanel’s spam trappers stop unwanted mail in its tracks, way before it even lands in an email client. When used in conjunction with Spam Assassin, Box Trapper can make dealing with your inbox a pleasure on a Monday morning.
Ignore, black list or white list specific email addresses, or forward them to a different email address, and get on with the rest of your life.

Make Your Digital Life More Secure
cPanel’s heightened security features enable anyone to make their domain safer. Specify which IP addresses you’d like to restrict from accessing your website with the IP Blocker feature. You can also make use of CloudFlare’s CDN and security features to make your domain safer.
In January 2017, Google started issuing warnings to users trying to access non-secure websites on Chrome (which is used by more than half of its users), and favoring HTTPS communication online.
It is recommended that you take your security one step further by installing a security certificate on your domain. cPanel makes SSL integration a breeze through AutoInstallSSL where all you need to do is insert your purchase token code and ID to begin the installation process.
Is someone or something out there stealing your bandwidth? Use cPanel’s Hotlink Protection to stop other websites from linking to image files on your website. Yes it happens more often than you are aware of.
Concerned about your users breeching security protocol by posting passwords to restricted areas? Protect files and folders of your choice with Leech Protection. Leech Protection will redirect compromised accounts to a file that you have designated, where you will be able to suspend them.

Metrics And Real-Time Reporting
Your intelligence doesn’t have to sit in the hands of your developer when you use cPanel. You can have a look at your website performance stats, who’s visiting and what they’re looking at when they’re on your site, whether it’s a marketing or security angle you’re coming from.
