image00cPanel is our Control Panel of choice for our Shared Hosting. Multi Site Hosting (reseller) and for our Managed Server Offerings. Our staff are experts in the use of cPanel and many of our clients are experts too being resellers of hosting through our Managed Servers.

The cPanel University exists to help users of cPanel and Web Hosting Professionals show and prove they have the skills required to initially sell and manage a cPanel server.

Although we know cPanel inside out and we’re confident in our ability having certifications will be good for us to show our new clients that we have what is takes to be trusted to manage their website hosting for them. We hope that by reviewing our ‘wrong answers’ will allow us to learn more from each exam we take and this knowledge will be shared among the team.

Some of our staff have completed the Legacy Certifications as individuals a few years ago. These certificates are out of date and it’s important they get re-certified so we can continue to say ‘Our Staff are cPanel Certified’. For this reason in 2017 we’ll be beginning the process to getting 100% of our staff at least one cPanel certification exam completed. More experienced System Admins and Staff will of course complete the more technical certifications as well.
