cPanel 72 has been announced, and it comes with a plethora of cool and interesting features.

Starting with security, which is always a priority area, cPanel 72 introduces the ability to enable strict SSL checks, to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks. It also comes with enhanced spam filtering, allowing you to enable filtering at an individual account level, and it restricts by default FTP logins from root or anonymous users.

On the “nice to have” list, we have the ability to add and manage Git repositories from cPanel itself (it won’t be necessary anymore to always do Git through remote repositories that you have to manage through the command line), and the introduction of an in-browser terminal for those times when running a shell command is optimal way to go.

Definitely an interesting update, with plenty of valuable additions. It will be formally released to the public by the end of this month.
