New cPanel feature – Backup User Selection

You are here:

cPanel & WHM are a powerful combination that allows you to quickly organize your personal web hosting business. With this duo, you can easily create and manage user accounts on your server, and customize billing and usage limits to meet each user’s requirements. In the latest version of cPanel & WHM (version 74), several new features have been introduced that are beneficial to system administrators. One of the highlights is the “Select Backup Users” feature, which enables you to manage backups for your clients.

In version 74 of cPanel & WHM, the Select Backup Users feature has been updated with a fresh new look and improved functionality. It now has a separate section with toggles and an Account Actions menu button, allowing you to enable or disable all accounts with just one click.
