Replacing blacklist/whitelist terminology

As a cPanel user, I would like for the terms blacklist and whitelist to be deprecated in a future version of cPanel in favor of denylist and allowlist to be more inclusive.


This article is educational

Can a new version of cpanel be made available please with the terms blacklist and whitelist renamed to denylist and allowlist?

We agree. We are tracking this effort internally under CPANEL-40609. Please understand that there are multiple third-party tools that we ship where such changes will also need to be made; those codebases typically move independently of us.
