For cPanel & WHM version 66

(Home >> Packages >> Feature Manager)


This interface allows you to edit feature lists, which you can assign to packages that you apply to cPanel accounts. Feature lists provide or prevent access to specific cPanel features.

Predefined feature lists

cPanel & WHM includes the default, disabled, and Mail Only feature lists by default.

  • If you are a reseller who only owns a mail server, use the Mail Only feature list. 
  • If you disable a feature in the default feature list, the system disables the feature by default for all of the users on your server. To override this configuration, create a new list and assign it to your users.

If you disable a feature in the disabled feature list, the system disables the feature for all of the users on your server. You cannot override this feature list with a new list.


  • To enable a feature in the default feature list, select the feature's checkbox. 
  • To disable a feature in the disabled feature list, select the feature's checkbox.

Create and edit a feature list

To create a new feature list or edit an existing feature list, perform the following steps:

  1. Choose one of the following options:

    • To create a new feature list, enter the desired feature list name in the Add a new feature list text box and click Add Feature List.


      Choose an easy-to-remember name so that you can properly assign it.
    • To edit an existing feature list, select the desired feature list from the Manage feature list menu and click Edit.
  2. Select checkboxes to enable features, or deselect checkboxes to disable features. 


    To disable a feature in the disabled feature list, select the feature's checkbox.

  3. Click Save.
