Introducing Updated Let’s Encrypt / AutoSSL Feature

We introduced the ability to issue Let’s Encrypt certificates in February 2016 and since then this feature has been heavily used.  The idea though that you’d have to individually issue each certificate was not particularly user friendly.  Fortunately cPanel introduced the ability to automatically issue certificates and upon announcing our Let’s Encrypt sponsorship we started automatically issuing Let’s Encrypt certificates.  We kept both ways to handle Let’s Encrypt certificates available but finally we are saying good bye to our legacy interface.

MySQL Now Powered by MariaDB 10.1

cPanel has supported MariaDB 10.1 for some time making it possible for us to upgrade.  We have many VPS users utilizing MariaDB 10.1 due to how easy it is to switch to it.  For us however we attempt to maintain compatibility with a larger amount of software and deployments of customer sites that could be over 10 years old!  I am happy to say though our team worked diligently and we’ve completed our upgrades from MariaDB 10.0 to 10.1.

Introducing cPanel Application Manager (Redis Support)

On December 31st 2015 we introduced the ability to launch memcached servers from accounts.  We had added this due to popular demand for the ability to easily start a memcached server.  Since then we have seen inquiries to add the ability to launch Redis and we’ve seen other similar applications on accounts as well.  This lead to us taking a step back and looking at a more complete solution and applying what we had learned about how our memcached feature was being used.  I’m happy to introduce a much more complete solution our Application Manager (Server Application Manager in your cPanel).
