cPanel Version 84
Written by: Simon A. Skaar

Faster validation for AutoSSL, PHP 7.3 on backend and a new refreshed interface for the webmail users is some of the new features in this version

We changed the AutoSSL feature’s Domain Control Validation (DCV) processing order. This change will significantly improve AutoSSL’s DCV execution time. Now, AutoSSL performs HTTP-based DCVs for each user first. Then, any DNS changes for users’ DNS-based DCVs occur in a single DNS update.Before this change, AutoSSL would separately process each user’s local DCVs. This process resulted in separate DNS updates for each user requiring a DNS-based DCV.

I n cPanel & WHM version 84, we upgraded the PHP version in cPanel & WHM from PHP 7.2 to PHP 7.3. This means that tasks in cPanel will be completed faster aswell as updates and maintenance will happen more smoothly.

We will move from bind to PowerDNS cluster this month. That will improve DNS for all customers. We will also remove old DNSSEC solution and transfer to PDNS DNSSEC. Read more about this on their blog.

Webmail user interface updates
In cPanel & WHM version 84, we have updated the look and feel, as well as the workflow, of the Webmail interface. The updated Webmail Home  interface allows users to perform the following actions:Open their inbox upon login — Users can select to open their email’s inbox every time they log in to Webmail. To do so, they can select the Open my inbox when I log in checkbox.
Change their Webmail client — Users can click any logo under the Change your webmail client header to change their Webmail client.
Set up email on a device — Users can email configuration instructions to a device. They will need access to their inbox from the device.
