cPanel Hosting


Manage Your Sites with Ease – cPanel Features:

cPanel hosting offers powerful tools to help any website owner perform essential website tasks quickly, easily, and reliably. It is the industry standard in website management among all top hosting companies. cPanel makes your life as a website owner simple!

cPanel for website owners provides the world’s most familiar user interfaces for managing a website. Website owners can easily manage their email accounts, databases, applications, security, FTP, and control every aspect of their websites through using the cPanel.

Creating Accounts

The cPanel hosting also allows website owners to create email accounts for their website. E-mail accounts are available through the standard protocols including POP, IMAP, and SMTP, all with or without SSL encryption. Designed with mobile users in mind, cPanel enables fast incoming and outgoing mail delivery. cPanel also supports Push Email via IMAP IDLE.

Webmail Access

Website owners have the ability to access email from anywhere they can find an internet connection, as well as configure many account options including email forwarding and auto-responders. cPanel provides three interfaces for checking email, including Horde, Roundcube, and SquirrelMail.


cPanel gives website owners the option of using powerful spam filters, SpamAssassin, and BoxTrapper. These powerful tools analyze incoming mail, looking at the source and content of all messages, as well as comparing it against lists of known spammers. Website owners can also setup custom spam filter rules to route messages to a spam folder. This helps to keep any inbox uncluttered!

Email Forwarding

E-mail forwarding is available through the cPanel hosting. Forwarding allows account holders to have an address at one domain (such as and forward incoming messages to any other domain (such as

Email Filtering

E-mail filtering is available for improved organization and handling of incoming e-mail.


cPanel offers website owners a simple, easy to use “Backup Wizard.” cPanel will make a full backup of your databases, email, and web sites with a few clicks, which can then be downloaded to a computer or sent to another server over SCP or FTP.


Database management is simple with cPanel! All of your database tasks, ranging from creating databases to manually editing tables, can be done through cPanel. cPanel supports MySQL databases, with the ability to add PostgreSQL, too.

Easy Setup Wizard

To minimize setup time, cPanel includes a “Getting Started Wizard,” which will walk you through the initial configuration of your account. Step-by-step tutorials, on-screen documentation, and other useful information is available through the Wizard.

Manage Domain Names

While most Web site owners manage only one domain for their Webhosting account, it is entirely possible to use a combination of multiple domains.

Through cPanel, website owners have the ability to:

  • Manage sub-domains (, with a prefix (
  • Manage Parked Domains (additional addresses that point to the website.)
  • Add-on domains, allowing website owners to run several Web sites from their account.

Managing Files

Managing website content is simple with cPanel! Website owners can:

  • Easily upload and manage web pages
  • Drag and drop files into their account using cPanel’s Web Disk feature
  • Use traditional file transfer methods (including FTP, SFTP, and FTPS).
  • Additionally, cPanel offers various file management tools, cPanel & WHM which make it easy to manage FTP accounts for employees or colleagues. This enables other users to upload files with optional security restrictions.

One-Click Applications

Commonly used web-based applications are easy to install with cPanel! Website owners can install such applications as WordPress blogs, simply by answering a few quick questions through their cPanel interface. cPanel’s intuitive and highly customizable interface provides website owners with an environment that will grow and evolve with their business!

Account Statistics

A range of built-in log file statistics are available through the cPanel. Log processing programs such as Webalizer, Analog Stats, and AWStats, allow website owners to see how many times their websites have been visited and how much email they have been sending.

How to Remove .html from Your URL

October 9, 2013 in Tips by Geeks Hosted  |  12 Comments
HTML image

It’s 2013 and there’s no reason to have .html showing on the end of each URL on your website. There’s a simple solution to remove .html from your website to come across more professional.

You need to create an .htaccess file. In order to do that, open Notepad on your computer. In Notepad, input the following:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}\.html -f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1.html

In order to save the file, go to File > Save As. For the file name, call it “.htaccess” without the quotes. Change the Save As Type to “All Files.”

Once you have the file saved, upload it to your public_html folder on the server. The last thing you’ll have to do is remove .html from all of your file names.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post below!

Oxwall Bug in Softaculous

September 14, 2013 in News by Geeks Hosted  |  2 Comments
Oxwall and softaculous bug

Hi all. I thought this was important in case any other customers plan on installing Oxwall via Softaculous. We had a customer who was trying to install Oxwall and it wouldn’t go. After hours of troubleshooting, we were finally able to get it.

For some reason Softaculous didn’t set the permissions properly to a folder during the install. The template_c folder within the “ow_smarty” folder is supposed to be set to CHMOD 777, but it was set to something like 754, which is not correct.

If you plan on installing Oxwall and run into problems, please feel free to open a support ticket. We’d be more than happy to assist!
