For cPanel & WHM version 11.52

(Home >> Packages >> Feature Manager)

Overview

This interface allows you to edit feature lists, which you can assign to packages that you apply to cPanel accounts. Feature lists provide or prevent access to specific cPanel features.

Predefined feature lists

cPanel & WHM includes the default, disabled, and Mail Only feature lists.

  • If you are a reseller who only owns a mail server, use the Mail Only feature list. 
  • If you disable a feature in the default feature list, the system disables the feature by default for all of the users on your server. To override this configuration, create a new list and assign it to your users.

 

If you disable a feature in the disabled feature list, the system disables the feature for all of the users on your server. You cannot override this feature list with a new list.

Note:

  • To enable a feature in the default feature list, select the feature's checkbox. 
  • To disable a feature in the disabled feature list, select the feature's checkbox.
