cPanel & WHM Version 94 has been released, and brings a slew of great updates. Take a look at what is included, and then upgrade today!

password protected backups

Open Discussion

Hello, i would suggest/request that in this day'n age of IT security, generated Cpanel & WHM backups need be password/key protected (or at least provide the option for it).


Backups are of the utmost importance to any server admin, yet lacking a password, one faces the chance that these files may fall in the wrong hands and simply copy all the info unto a new server.


Please make this possible.

Thank you,

It would be really useful, mainly when we store the backups on spare servers or online accounts like dropbox.

This is useful, I don't want to access to my backup files on another backup server by someone.

Encryption seems to be a topic which is completely avoided in Cpanel.

Isn't even a feature many users are look for. I remember posting something about that in the forum 8-9 years ago and it got no traction. Seems to be OK for most resellers/users to share the data.
