cPanel recently announced the launch of their newest Enkompass product, Enkompass 2.0. Along with many internal changes and tweaks to the product itself, the new version boasts greater user functionality, and a more streamlined update system for admins.
One of the most significant changes in Enkompass 2.0 is that the use of ASP is now optional for users. This means that accounts will no longer have ASP enabled by default, which can save users up to 20 megabytes of space. Using the “Configure ASP.NET Framework” role which is granted to Web site owners, these owners can configure their accounts in whatever way works best for them. Enkompass 2.0 supports ASP, Classic ASP, as well as ASP.NET and the 2.0, 3.5 and 4.0 versions of ASP.NET.
Along with increased control, those using Enkompass 2.0 will notice that they now have an emulation option for cPanel’s XML-API, an industry standard in billing automation, along with a re-designed bandwidth monitoring system for more flexibility. A re-written backup system allows great restoration control and lower resource usage, and the product overall sports better performance and greater resource usage improvements.
Measures have also been introduced to combat malicious activity. Two of these fall under the “Tweak Settings” category, and allow users to turn on Commonly Spoofed Domain Protection and External Domain Protection. The first prevents the commonly spoofed domains from being used, and the second deters anyone from registering an account on a user’s Enkompass using domains that are already locally managed by a DNS.
The Enkompass 2.0 product will send a notification to the administrator whenever a newer version is available for download, and an icon will appear on the home screen whenever an upgrade is waiting be downloaded.
