The ultimate goal for any of the software is to provide the user with the best experience possible. The cPanel analytics feature enables exactly the aforementioned feature so that the data collected can be used to offer the user the best experience while they browse through cPanel and it’s features. One can be absolutely sure that these data collected from the user are completely optional and they can turn it off or at any time they feel like. Moreover, the data that is collected from the user is completely encrypted and in no way can we misused. The data is even destroyed after 26 days from the day of collection for obvious safety reasons.
The working of the cPanel analytics feature is pretty simple and straightforward. cPanel will automatically determine how the user navigates through the webmail, WHM from within the interface. They collect this navigational data from the user and provide an optimal user experience. It becomes a lot easier when the machine already knows your next move, so that your job becomes a lot easier.
In cPanel and WHM version 78, the cPanel analytics feature plug-in is automatically installed but is not enabled by default. The user has to enable it before any form of data collection can begin. This gives the users further control as to what data it can collect because they can disable the cPanel analytics feature any time from the plug-in itself. The analytics feature plug-in is divided into two levels-the server level and the account level. When both of these levels are enabled, only then the data collection begins.
Enabling or disabling the cPanel analytics feature is a pretty simple task. The user can enable or disable the analytics feature on both the account and the server levels. Follow the steps carefully below to enable or disable the aforementioned feature.
Go to WHM, then navigate to Home. While on Home, look for a tab called Server Navigation, followed by ‘Configure cPanel Analytics’. You can either enable or disable the cPanel analytics feature from this option.
Note: You have to enable the cPanel analytics feature on the server level first before enabling it on the account level.
