I think that this would be very useful indeed (but I would because it would be useful to me):

cPanel account management app for android

Create a cPanel app for android devices to manage accounts ...from a tablet or such like.

This app is now live in the google play store, and you can find it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cpanel.android&hl=en


Currently it just provides you an easy way to log in to your servers without having to use a password manager, or save passwords in your browser, but we use it heavily internally already. If you have questions, feel free to let me know!

This would be ideal!

I think the implementation should also include FTP and WebDAV account management.

Example use case: This will allow a person to create a WebDAV account and immediately use the separate Android application for cPanel Web Disk (from Google Play) while connected only from a mobile device and also without involving a browser.


Personally, and ideally, I would like the native Android application(s) to ultimately encompass as much of the cPanel&WHM experience as possible.

I don't believe cPanel didn't develop it yet ;-)

It is a MUST! Highly appreciated, indeed...

What do you think cPanel?

When can we get it so we can manage stuff from out mobiles?

Please, do listen to this. Do listen!

Thanks,

I believe there should be separate applications for WHM & cPanel. the cPanel application should contain just a login form for cPanel users (perhaps some autoconfig based on their domain?).


All cPanel features should be accessible from the application. I know there's third-party apps that do this but those are usually very expensive.

Perhaps some branding could be done, that the paper lantern style from the account is applied (to some limitations, of course) to the application.


The WHM app could be slightly less branded (If branding is a terrible pain to implement) but should be very functional. I would require at least the following functionality:


  • adding accounts
  • modifying accounts (Update password, change package, change domain)
  • viewing CPHulk logs and modifying the blacklist and whitelist
  • Suspending and unsuspending accounts
  • Managing DNS zones
  • Adding DNS zones
  • Restarting services
  • Viewing service status
  • Perhaps support for CSF
  • - Quick blacklist & whitelist
  • - Quick unblock
  • - Quick temporary block & allow

Obviously, iOS users would also like this


Can't wait for this to be a thing :D

There are many apps present on Play Store already. You can use this free app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.cpanel.remote&hl=en

Unfortunately it's a limited app and looks like it's not been updated for about a year. The absence of account and user filtering makes it pretty useless for me. Haven't found a decent one to date.

Good news! We are actively developing an android app for managing cPanel, WHM, and webmail accounts. We hope to see it arrive within the next month of so.

That's great news. Our team is looking forward to this for sure.

One suggestion might be to look at what vBulletin does with their mobile app, where you allow clients to create "personalized versions" of the applications if they wish. So there can be a Company A Control App in the store with name and logo, but the core is the cPanel app.

That's not a bad idea! Currently that's not in the works or planned for our mobile apps, but might be something we would consider in the future.

Basically you login to your vBulletin account. Upload your icon, logo, set your name and choose a color scheme. Their automated process then builds the apps and send to you. You then sign each app with your computer and upload to your own Apple or Google account accordingly.


It works beautifully and they even notify you of app updates.

This is amazing news !


Benny, could you confirm if it will support real time notifications, i.e. if server runs out of RAM, or if services fail etc will there be a realtime android notification triggered??


And then further to that will it be a proper management app that will allow service restarts, config changes, checking firewall logs via csf and things like this? Or is it going to be a bit more simplified?


Or perhaps is there a feature list you could post for us to see what it will include?

Currently this is just account management, exactly like the iOS app that's already out, but notifications are what we want to do in the very next version of the App (for both Android and iOS).

Yes please add notifications ASAP :)
