handlers allow you to control what Apache
will do with certain file types. When Apache sees a
file, it has an action built in for that file type,
and will perform that action. If you wish Apache to
do a different action, you will need to make a
handler to tell Apache to perform that action. For
example, if you use a file type that requires a
special service to run it, such as a movie file
(.mpg) that you wish to run through a specific
streaming server, you need to tell Apache to treat
these files differently.
A full backup will backup all files
needed to restore your account if it is corrupted,

Cron jobs allow you to automate certain
commands or scripts on your server to complete
repetitive tasks automatically. A cron job allows
you to run a certain command at times set by the
job. For example, you could set a cron job to delete
temporary files every week so that your disk space
is not being used up by those files. Standard mode
gives you a range of pre-set options for adding your
cron job and is easier to use than advanced mode.

display the last 300 errors for your site. This can
be very useful for determining what links are broken
on your site, or what files do not exist that

modify the different HTML pages that a user will see
when an error is registered on your site. For

give a more personal feel to your site and can also
be useful when your site is under construction.

need to transfer files from a computer to the
computer that contains your web site. If you need to
transfer many files, using an FTP client is the

Manager, you can create FTP accounts, which
allow users to access the files of your web site
with an FTP client.
HotLink protection prevents other
websites from directly linking to files (as
specified below) on your website. Other sites will
still be able to link to any file type that you
don't specify below (ie. html files). You can use
hotlink protection to keep other sites from linking
to your images, videos, and other files. If another
site links directly to your images or other files,
they will be using your bandwidth to display those
files rather than theirs.

Mime types tell browsers how to handle
specific extensions. For example, the
text/html mime type equates to .htm, .html, and .shtml
extensions on most servers, and this tells your
browser to interpret all files with those extensions
as HTML files. You can alter or add new mime types
specifically for your site (note that you can not
alter the system defined mime type values).
Tools (Domain Lookup & Traceroute)
Lookup tool allows you to find out the IP address of
any domain, as well as DNS information about that
domain. This can be a very useful tool right after
your site is set up or after DNS changes have been
made to make sure your DNS is setup properly. On the
other hand, Traceroute allows you to trace the route
from the computer you are accessing cPanel from to
the server your site is on (i.e. the number of
servers and what servers your data must pass through
to get to your site).

this option to place a password on one of your
site's directories. Only users that you specify will

your web site to get to the page they wish to
Domain Maintenance menu allows you to add
subdomains to your account. This feature is very
useful as people can access subdirectories in your
site through a simpler domain name than using your
