If you have certain features on your website that are restricted to people with a username and password, you likely only want those people to access it. The problem is that some people give their login credentials away, so, for example, their friends can access paid content for free. There’s an easy solution to this problem, with Cpanel.
One of the worst things that can happen to a webmaster is the loss of their bandwidth due to thieves. Most webmasters are given a limit, or quota, in regards to how much bandwidth they can use.
When someone else links directly to an image or other large file that you host, you lose bandwidth to people who aren’t even visiting your site directly. So, there’s nothing you can do, right? Wrong.

There are many elements to a website, or more specifically to ensuring that it runs smoothly. Your server needs to be connected to quality bandwidth, and you need to load your content efficiently. One easy way to do that is to use caching. What caching does is this: it stores a page’s content and serves it in a manner that reduces the stress on your server, and in so doing, it increases the speed for your site’s visitors.
Google Apps is a valuable tool for businesses and people alike. With it, you can use e-mail through Gmail’s interface, but with your website’s e-mail. In order to set it up through Cpanel, of course, you have to have your account set up through Google Apps.
Setting up your account will involve verifying it, which can be done in a number of ways. The system will guide you through the process, but perhaps the easiest option is to upload a text file that the system will give you. This will verify that you have administrative access to the domain. Once this step is complete, you will be able to set up your MX records, allowing your domain to exchange information with Google Apps.
As many of you will have noticed, we recently performed a survey of our shared and reseller hosting clients. The aim? To find out what our customers think of Downtown Host and identify what we can do to improve the services we offer.
