An Overview

The cPanel Analytics Feature is an optional feature that allows data to be collected about a user’s cPanel and WHM interface related activity as well as about hosting providers server configurations, thereby improving his or her overall experience of the same by altering it subtly in a variety of ways.

The feature is, however, entirely optional and the user may choose to enable it on an individual level or not depending on his or her preference.

All data collected is done with the permission of the given user and is stored for a maximum of 26 months, after which any data saved previously is destroyed.

 

How the Feature Works and Why

The cPanel Analytics Feature, when enabled, is something that operates to collect the following data to improve the user’s cPanel/ WHM/ Webmail experience :

  • What version of WHM/ cPanel the user has enabled.
  • What kind of account the user has.
  • What is the Operating System and the OS version.
  • The themes and interface styles of a WHM or cPanel account.
  • The particular Company ID that is saved on the Manage2 interface.
  • The frequency with which users access particular features of their cPanel accounts and the cPanel locales.
  • Finally, the feature keeps a track of the frequency of a user’s or server’s logging into his or her CPanel account and analyses the relevant data.

 

All of this data, however, is collected only after a two-step verification process at the server and the individual level. It may, at any time, be disabled by a given user depending on the privacy settings preferred by them.

 

Some things to be kept in mind

Here are some of the pointers to be kept in mind when understanding the Analytics feature of cPanel:

  • This feature, as the name suggests, is used for the purpose of analysis of the patterns of a user’s or a server’s behaviour when online.
  • It is a completely optional feature which can be enabled and again disabled or vice-versa by the users at any given point of time.
  • All of the data collected using this feature is strictly anonymous and is not used to any purpose without the informed consent of the user.
  • The ‘DNT’ or Do Not Track feature respects the users’ privacy and disallows any tracking of the same if tracking is disabled at the Browser level.

 

cPanel Analytics is hence a feature that is useful to users of the application. It is optional, adheres to the requisite parameters of privacy and is easy to use.
