The scenario:

If you have a package type BasicEmail package – chances are those users are not going to need every feature cPanel  has to offer – and in some cases it can be detrimental to give them every option – especially for those inquisitive customers that like to randomly click on options without completely understanding what they could be doing.

  • Here you will see there are 3 basic feature sets – Default, Disabled and Mail Only
  • Enter a name for your new Feature Set: something like BasicEmailOnly then click “Add”
  • On the following page – go through and select/deselect the feature you would your users to have available to them.
  • Click Save once you are done.


To assign this new feature set to a package – follow these steps:


  • In the WHM search box type in: package
  • Select “Edit a Package” from the menu
  • Select the package you wish to modify and click “Edit”
  • Towards the bottom of the page you will see “Feature List” – change this to the feature set you have just created
  • Click “Save Changes”
