Features of cPanel, included free with all Hosting Accounts

Creating Email Accounts

Webmail Access

cPanel software provides several web-based interfaces for checking email, including Horde, Roundcube, and SquirrelMail. You have the ability to access your email from any web browser, as well as configure many account options including email forwarding and auto-responders.

Spam

To help curb spam, our cPanel software gives you the option of using powerful spam filters, SpamAssassin, and BoxTrapper. These powerful utilities analyze your incoming mail, looking at the source and content of the message, as well as comparing it against lists of known spammers. You can also setup spam filter rules which route messages to a spam folder, helping to keep your inbox uncluttered at all times.

Easy Setup Wizard

Manage Domain Names

While most Web site owners manage only one domain for their Web hosting account, there are many others who use a combination of domains. Through cPanel, you have the ability to manage:

  • Subdomains are your domain (example.com), with a prefix (sub.example.com).
  • Parked Domains are additional addresses that point to the same website.
  • Add-on domains are addresses that can point to a specific section of your hosting, allowing you to run several websites from your account, sharing the total package space.
  • Just place an order with Khimaira-GreenEarthHost, and we will register your new names and make them ready to be used as parked or Add-on domains.
