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. These predefined feature lists determine which features are automatically assigned to new or existing feature lists.

Default

The system grants cPanel users access to the default feature list’s selected features by default. If you disable a feature in this feature list, the system disables that feature by default for all users using the default feature list. To override this configuration, create a new list and assign it to your cPanel users.

Mail only

The Mail Only feature list provides cPanel users access to only mail-related features, such as Email Archiving or Apache SpamAssassin™. If you are a reseller who only owns a mail server, use this feature list.

Disabled

Warning:

This predefined feature list is not intended for use with a cPanel account or a package. Instead, assign a cPanel account or package the default feature list, but define the feature you do not want available on the server in the disabled feature list.

The disabled feature list serves as a list of features unavailable to all users and feature lists on your server. This feature list will also override any settings changed in other feature lists assigned to users.

Create and edit a feature list

To create a new feature list or edit an existing feature list, perform the following steps:

  1. Choose one of the following settings:
    • To create a new feature list, enter the desired feature list name in the Add a new feature list text box and click Add Feature List.
      Note:
      Choose an easy-to-remember name so that you can properly assign it.
    • To edit a feature list that already exists, select the desired feature list from the Manage feature list menu and then click Edit.
  2. Select checkboxes to enable features, or deselect checkboxes to disable features.
    Note:
    To disable a feature in the disabled feature list, select the feature’s checkbox.
  3. Click Save.

Delete a feature list

Note:

When you delete a feature list, the system assigns the default feature list to deleted feature lists’ packages and accounts.

To remove an existing feature list, perform the following steps:

  1. From the Manage a feature list menu, select the feature list to remove.
  2. Click Delete.

Selectable features

Warning:
  • This table lists the cPanel interfaces for the default cPanel theme (Jupiter). If you use the another theme for the cPanel interface, these interfaces and locations may vary slightly.

  • Various settings and customizations from other interfaces can add or remove features from this interface.

  • Some cPanel features may require that you enable additional settings in order for them to function. Read each feature’s documentation for additional information.

  • This interface displays a Legacy label if the feature corresponds to a deprecated theme.
