Reviews - What do customers think about Web Host Manager Administration Guide?
Valuable reference for the new to novice WHM user Dec 12, 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.
Just like the author's cPanel book which I also enjoyed, this book was logically ordered, clear and easy to understand. It also includes screenshots of virtually every part of WHM you could ever want to see.
As expected, it takes you step by step from the beginning to getting into advanced WHM functionality. An advantage to this text though is that it includes the author's own experience (most of which I agreed with) on what things you should and should not do. If you don't know yet, WHM allows access to all sorts of settings that aren't always going to be suitable for all server applications. He does more than just saying how to do it; he provides explanation on when you should or shouldn't use something which is great.
If you're a seasoned WHM veteran, you may find a thing here and there that you weren't familiar with (I did), but I think the most value is going to be had by those who are new to cPanel/WHM. If you're making the move towards becoming a Reseller and you're completely new to WHM, this book is going to save you tons of support tickets and headaches.
A nice addition to your cPanel/WHM library.
Good resource for WHM Oct 10, 2006
There really wasn't a book of this kind before this came out. Before if I need Web Host Manager help, I usually had to rely on the documentation that came with cPanel (which isn't great) or had to use the cPanel forums (which are nice, assuming you can find what you need). This book was a very handy guide, and had information on WHM that I didn't know existed (and I've been working with WHM for years). So here's the order I'll be looking for cPanel/WHM information now:
1) This book 2) The forums 3) Then, if all else fails, the documentation
Like any book of this type, it'll be dated when/if cPanel makes a major change, but it'll still be useful beyond that.
