A very handy tool will allow you to download a backup
of your site. Although we have backups on site here, it
is a handy feature. Along with your regular website, you can also backup SQL databases, aliases, and filters!
Allows you to modify the files in your website in real-time
via a web based interface. You can perform many commands
such as chmod as well as actually edit the file and
save it directly to the web server.
The index manager will allow you to turn indexes on or off for a directory. If indexes are off, people will not be able to see what files are in a directory that lacks an index file.
This section lets you customize the errors that your users
will see instead of the generic server errors. You could
setup a 404 page to redirect users to your main web site
instead of the default error document.
Password Protect Directories
Web page protection is used to limit access to any directory
to users who enter a username/password. Helpful for parts of your site
you don't want anyone to see, or only want to grant access to specific people.
Hotlinking is when another web site owner links directly to one or more of your images or multimedia files and includes it on their web page. Not only is this theft of your intellectual property, you are paying for the bandwidth used by that site. CPanel can prevent hotlinking by only allowing named sites (such as your own web site) to access files on your site.
IP Deny Manager
This feature will allow you to block a range of IP addresses to prevent them from accessing your site.

unrouted mail (cuts back on spam!) or :fail: no such address here to bounce it.

a sender when a certain email address receives mail.
