Server Profiles Roadmap
Last modified: January 21, 2021
In cPanel & WHM version 76, we introduced WHM’s Server Profile interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Server Profile). Server profiles optimize servers to perform specific tasks or functions. These servers can host accounts that do not need certain applications. Each profile enables and disables a set of roles. Each role allows or disallows certain services related to the server’s task. For example, a server that runs a Mail Node profile only enables services essential to mail. The profile disables all other services, such as Web Disk and FTP.
- For more information about server profiles, read our How to Use Server Profiles documentation.
- For information about linked server nodes, read our cPanel Linked Nodes Guide documentation.
A visual representation of the phases.
This project has several phases. Each phase will deliver more server profile improvements, functions, and controls. You can read about each phase in the following section:
|1||Introduce server profiles||
|2||Improve email deliverability||
|3||Manage API Tokens in cPanel||
|4||Standalone DNS Node licensing||Support of DNS Node licenses.||Complete|
|5||Link a new Standard Node to a new Mail Node server||
|6||Transfer existing linked cPanel accounts between nodes||
|7||Modify a cPanel account to offload mail||Offload a cPanel account’s mail storage to a linked node in WHM’s Modify an Account interface (WHM >> Home >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account).||Complete|
|8||Modify a cPanel account to host mail locally||Modify a distributed cPanel account to use only the local server in WHM’s Modify an Account interface (WHM >> Home >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account).||Complete|
|9||Production Ready||Support a linked child node server with a Standard Node or Mail Node server profile in a production environment.||Complete|
|10||Future plans||Performance and optimizations.||In progress|
