cPHulk is Now Even Stronger


Security is a huge priority for the cPanel team. Not only do we make sure we are providing everything we can to keep our customers protected, but we also provide ways for our customers to keep their clients’ information safe as well. One of our most prized features for both web, email, and server security is cPHulk. This feature, which provides great protection against brute force attacks, has been a part of our security suite for years — and it’s become even more powerful with the release of cPanel & WHM version 70.

More Powerful in Version 70: Country Management

 As of v70, hosts can  country or provide easier access to selected regions of their choosing.

Subsequently, a host can still whitelist individual IPs from that list of IPs or remove the country from the blacklist entirely.

“The way we built this update to cPHulk is exciting for multiple reasons,” says Jason Kiniry, one of our d. “Not only is the update more powerful, but the changes we’ve made to the system’s is encouraging us to think about new ways to provide better experiences that also put less of a load on our users’ machines.“
