Item description for cPanel User Guide and Tutorial by A Pedersen...
If you have web hosting requirements beyond the most basic, you should look for a host that offers cPanel. cPanel gives you tight control over every aspect of your web site, email accounts, and domain names. But once you've got a web site with cPanel support, how do you go about using it? While the documentation included with cPanel may provide a quick reference, to really get the most from it you need a more detailed, systematic tutorial.
Read this book to find out exactly how to get the most from cPanel in all aspects of your web site management: web, email, FTP, security, domains, back ups, and more.
This book will help you to:
- Learn how to find hosts that offer cPanel with their web hosting packages - Discover how to access your cPanel account in several different ways, even behind a firewall - Familiarize yourself with the standard cPanel layout so you can find what you are looking for quickly - Discover what the information you see on the main cPanel interface means and how to use it to keep track of what is happening with your hosting account - Create, manage and remove FTP accounts so you (or your web master) can upload, access and remove files from your website - Set up, manage and learn how to access e-mail accounts, including e-mail aliases (forwarding), web mail access, e-mail quotas, mail filtering, spam blocking and mailing lists - Create, manage and delete databases from within cPanel - Learn how to protect and control access to information on your web site using the tools that cPanel provides - Monitor site traffic using web stats - Discover how to create an effective backup strategy using cPanel's web site backup and restore features - Explore some advanced tools that cPanel offers to help manage your web site - Learn basic techniques to keep your web site safe from hackers and learn what to do if the worst happens - Examine some common third-party add-ons and themes that your host may choose to offer - Discover a wealth of external tools that make the aspiring web master's job easier

Finally a guide that truly explains cPanel Jun 16, 2007
I recently purchased a genuine hosting account after having my domain names point to free servers for years. I put it off because I was afraid I would never be able to understand cPanel based on the info I was able to read on the net. It confused me, and was not specific to newbie users.
Thank goodness I found the one guide that made it easy to understand here at this site. It is a great book for anyone using cPanel, not just newbies, and the price was well worth every penny.

Great For Newbies Aug 1, 2006
If you have a Web host that gives you cPanel as part of your Web hosting package [...], you've got a great site control panel at your disposal. I use cPanel on all my servers, and while I'm fairly good at it, I know there are many folks out there who are a bit afraid of it.
I recently had a chance to look at this book (I was given a comp copy by the publisher as a neutral 3rd party host, like the above comment). For cPanel newbies, it's actually a great resource, going far above and beyond the built-in help that comes with cPanel and the documentation on their site (it's far easier to read, that's for sure). There were a few things mentioned in the book that I didn't know existed (I had no need for them, so I wasn't really looking for them), and a few things that were mentioned in the book that were slightly dated (which is bound to happen with this type of book). Overall, it was a good book for users of cPanel.
However, for folks like me who actually want to use cPanel and it's accompanying WHM software to manage your whole server, it doesn't touch on that at all. cPanel comes with a great back-end Web interface to manage your server's DNS, Apache config, mail server configuration, accounts setup, quotas, system upgrades and patches, security, resellers, backups, etc... . It also comes with a bunch of handy command-line scripts for lazy folks like me that would rather type one line instead of a hundred (easyapache is one example, and there are several for MySQL and email and DNS that I've used many times before). I would've liked to have seen more on that component of cPanel, as that'd be far handier to me (I usually rely on the cPanel forums for my info).
But it's a good book for folks out there who are looking for some help with cPanel's tools from a webmaster standpoint. Just dig into the WHM forums and docs if you're actually managing the system.
EDIT: There is a follow-up book to this that covers my original gripe about the book: it's lack of WHM coverage.
Great intro to cPanel functionality Jun 14, 2006
I was sent a copy of this book to review as a neutral third party host. I have no relation to the author/publisher or any personal benefit in reviewing the book.
I will say it's a very nice introduction to cPanel that offers guidance and clear explanations easy enough for the most un-savvy user to pick up quickly. The details and instruction are not lost on more experienced users either -- I found a few new features I hadn't used myself.
The content is fresh (just recently published this year) and as long as they maintain it, it should continue to be a good resource to readers. When I think of the time and effort I've seen users spend in searching for answers through forums and support tickets, the cost of this book is well worth the gained knowledge.
