Upgrade blockers

None.

New features

Added WHM Marketplace interface

In cPanel & WHM version 90, we introduced the WHM Marketplace. This feature allows the user to install, manage, and purchase additional third-party licenses and products for their account.

Added Calendar Delegation interface

In cPanel & WHM version 90, you can now delegate access for a user’s calendars to another user with cPanel’s Calendar Delegation interface (cPanel >> Home >> Email >> Calendar Delegation). This is useful for people who need to manage other people’s calendars or manage resources such as conference rooms.Note:This interface only appears if you have installed the Calendar and Contacts Server plugin.

The cPanel Application Manager interface now runs on servers with Nginx

In cPanel & WHM version 90, we added support for Nginx to cPanel’s Application Manager interface. You can use this interface to manage your applications on servers that run Nginx.Note:Nginx is experimental.

This interface requires the ea-ruby24-mod_passenger Apache module. The system will install this module and other related modules when you install Ngix.

For more information, read our Nginx documentation.

Added Slack option to communication types

In cPanel & WHM version 90, you can now send system notifications to one or more Slack WebHooks. You can specify Slack® WebHooks in WHM’s Basic WebHost Manager Setup interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Basic WebHost Manager Setup). You can test and set the priority for the Slack WebHooks in WHM’s Contact Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Contacts >> Contact Manager).

For more information about Slack WebHooks, read Slack’s Sending messages using Incoming Webhooks documentation.

Added automatically-issued hostnames from cprapid.com

In cPanel & WHM version 90, we introduced the automatically-issued hostname feature. If a server does not possess a unique fully-qualified domain name as a hostname, this feature will automatically assign a subdomain of the cprapid.com domain. This will allow the server to obtain a valid free hostname certificate, which reduces the chance that a new user will see a warning page when they first log in to WHM.

For more information, read our Automatically-Issued Hostnames documentation.

Added the ability to activate a free 15-day trial

In cPanel & WHM version 90, you can now activate a free 15-day trial license during the initial configuration.

Added the Technical Support Agreement

In cPanel & WHM version 90, we added the Technical Support Agreement to initial setup.

Added the cPanel & WHM Pricing and Term Agreement

In cPanel & WHM version 90, we added the cPanel & WHM Pricing and Term Agreement to initial setup.

Updated features

New Live Transfer setting

We improved the account transfer system. The Express Transfers setting is now the Live Transfers setting in WHM’s Transfer Tool interface (WHM >> Home >> Transfers >> Transfer Tool). This update reduces downtime by redirecting web and mail traffic to the new server. Visitors are more likely to see the page they want to visit instead of the website being down. This setting is on by default.

WHM transfers work when SSH is unavailable

You no longer need SSH for transfers that use password authentication. These transfers will work even if WHM cannot access the source server via SSH. This feature is useful if your server cannot get through a firewall, or has trouble reaching the SSH port.

Added Enable automatic updates to Upgrade to Latest Version interface

In cPanel & WHM version 90, if automatic updates are disabled on your server, you can click Enable automatic updates in WHM’s Upgrade to Latest Version interface (WHM >> Home >> cPanel >> Upgrade to Latest Version) to reenable them. This is in addition to the WHM Update Preferences interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences).

Nginx now uses the logrotate module to rotate logs

In cPanel & WHM version 90, we now use the logrotate module to rotate logs on servers that run Nginx.Note:Nginx is experimental.

For more information, read our Nginx documentation.

In cPanel & WHM version 90, we standardized the names of package resources across the following WHM interfaces:
