cPanel Hosting

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 webmaster@geekshosted.com) and forward incoming messages to any other domain (such as your-name@gmail.com).

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 (example.com), with a prefix (sub.example.com.)
  • 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.

Apache and MySQL Have Been Upgraded

August 19, 2013 in Updates by Geeks Hosted  |  1 Comments
Server Updates

Just a quick side-note, Apache has been upgraded on our servers today to version 2.4.6. We’ve also upgraded MySQL to 5.5.x.

You shouldn’t notice an effects on your site. This was a behind the scenes update that caused no down-time. As always, we backed up all your data in case something were to go wrong with the upgrade!


FREE Daily Backups

August 18, 2013 in News, Updates by Geeks Hosted  |  1 Comments

Good news! We’ve just launched our daily backup system today. What does this mean for you? Your site will be backed up to a remote server automatically every day! Before we were running manual backups ourselves which took up precious time. In case a server ever crashes, or you accidentally make a change to your site that you didn’t mean to, you can open a support ticket and we can restore your site up to 3 days prior. Just tell us which of the 3 days you want to go back to.

What do you have to do? Absolutely nothing! This is all automated and absolutely FREE! We strive to make your free hosting experience as painless as possible!

We’ve Successfully Moved to Dedicated Servers

August 18, 2013 in News, Updates by Geeks Hosted  |  1 Comments
Dedicated Server

Prior to today, we were using reseller hosting accounts. We’ve now outgrown reseller hosting, passed VPS servers, and moved directly to dedicated servers.

We can confirm that everyone’s accounts were successfully moved over without any down time. It appears that the name-servers have now 100% propagated over to the new servers. If you’re using NS1.WeHostFree.com and NS2.WeHostFree.com as your nameservers, there’s nothing else for you to do.

However, if you’re using custom name-servers, such as ns1.YourDomain.com and ns2.YourDomain.com, then you need to update the IP addresses your name-servers point to. Otherwise your site will appear offline! If you need any assistance, please feel free to open a support ticket.

Our new servers are located in Canada, which is a central location for the entire North American continent. We have been thinking about opening a dedicated server overseas for our foreign customers. If this is something you think you’d be interested in, please feel free to e-mail us or leave a comment below.

As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to open a support ticket 24/7/365.


How Serious Are We About Storage?

Server Storage

Take a look at our Windows storage which holds all of our files. We’re ALMOST to a FULL 10TB which translates  in to almost 10,000GB, or basically 312 Samsung Galaxy S4 phones being completely full of data!

On top of that, our 10TB of storage is also backed up remotely to another data center here in Minneapolis, Minneosta! Your site is backed up, which is then backed up to another server! Please sleep well at night knowing that your data is safe with us here at WeHostFree.

Free Hosting Rules and Success Rate

August 10, 2013 in Updates by Geeks Hosted  |  1 Comments

Currently at the time of this post, GeeksHosted has a successful applicant rate of about 30%. Most applicants who try to sign up for our free hosting are not succeeding because they are trying to either:

A.) register a second-level domain such as a .TK extension.
B.) Signup from a proxy, VPN, or somewhere other then their physical location (yes we know when you’re using a proxy!)
C.) Your site does not fit within our terms of service agreement.

Remember, if you read the rules first, you’ll have a much better chance at getting a free hosting account with us!

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to open a ticket.
