HOUSTON, TX – cPanel & WHM® Version 74 is the third release of 2018 and includes improvements in many of cPanel & WHM’s most popular features.

Git Version Control allows users to easily create and manage Git repositories on their cPanel hosting account. Version 74 now includes the ability to automatically deploy sites and applications from a repository, making it even easier to host applications on cPanel servers.


The development team has been hard at work over the last year to improve the speed and quality of cPanel’s Automated Backups. cPanel users benefit from up to 60 percent faster backups and restores. The File and Directory Restore interface for server administrators and hosting users, along with new and improved remote destinations, make cPanel’s backup system one of the most robust on the market.

AutoSSL and SSLs ordered through the cPanel Market Place will see a much higher success rate with this version. cPanel has improved its Domain Control Validation (DCV). DNS-Based validation and Ancestor-based (or primary-domain) validation reduce the work required of a user to get an SSL.

“cPanel & WHM Version 74 shows what can happen when you stay focused on what your customers need,” said Ken Power, Vice President of Product Development. “Across-the-board performance improvement, features focused on the evolving hosting market and tools that make server management a breeze. These changes and more make cPanel & WHM Version 74 our best release to date.”

As server administrators move to adopt cPanel & WHM Version 74, cPanel will see nearly 80 percent adoption across all cPanel & WHM servers. Take a look at the feature highlights on the cPanel & WHM Version 74 Release Site and read the full Version 74 release notes in the cPanel & WHM Documentation.

ALBANY, N.Y. – Leading Data Center and Cloud Hosting Solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today that their flagship data center in Albany, New York has once again earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy performance. TurnKey Internet’s data center is the 2nd in the state of New York to achieve the highest environmental standards and earn the ENERGY STAR data center certification. TurnKey’s facility utilizes state-of-the-art technology and 100% renewable energy to provide the greenest cloud-based IT services for clients all over the world.

TurnKey Internet runs their ENERGY STAR certified data center with 100% renewable hydro and solar power.

The data center is SSAE 18 SOC 2 certified, confirming the highest tier of reliability. The facility features low-voltage servers stored in ultra-efficient cold containment pods. These pods deliver precision spot-cooling to temperature-regulated server racks, which use thirty-three percent less energy than traditional data centers.

ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the Unites States that is based on actual, verified energy performance.

“Our new All-Flash NVMe BigTwin™ solution, which is fully ready to deploy and has undergone stringent validation testing and certification by Intel, VMware and Supermicro, is the preferred platform for many of today’s leading hyperconvergence players,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “This All-Flash vSAN hyper-converged solution accelerates software-defined storage, optimizes data center infrastructure, and ultimately fast-tracks the process of selecting and deploying hardware and software.”

This BigTwin SDS solution has higher core counts designed to support more virtual machines (VM) per node and system. With up to 3TB memory per node, All-Flash NVMe BigTwin technology is ideal for in-memory database applications. Each node supports six hot-swap NVMe drives to fully maximize performance.

Featuring Supermicro’s flexible, cost-optimized SIOM networking module, the All-Flash NVMe BigTwin supports a variety of 10G, 25G, 50G and 100G network interface options. The solution’s multi-node architecture maximizes power efficiency through resource sharing for greener computing and saves customers on both CAPEX and OPEX to deliver the best TCO.

Using Intel® Optane™ DC SSDs with NVMe support for caching helps this high-performance SDS solution accelerate storage performance up to 3X with endurance up to 30 drive writes per day (DWPD).
