cPanel is a full-featured, web-based control panel that enables you to easily manage your hosting
account. With cPanel, you can manage all aspects of your site, including e-mail accounts, files,
backups, web site statistics, and much more. It is also one of the most widely used control
panels, offered by many hosting companies as a part of their packages.
Themes provide the look-and-feel of the cPanel interface. The latest cPanel theme release is
named Jupiter, and it replaces the Paper Lantern theme (which in turn replaced the x3 theme
before it). If you have been using Paper Lantern for awhile, you may be considering a switch to
Jupiter. Here’s what you need to know about cPanel’s latest theme.
Differences between cPanel Paper Lantern and Jupiter themes
Jupiter provides a completely new look-and-feel to the cPanel interface. But it also offers two
new pages: Tools and Solutions.
If you have used cPanel before, the Tools page will be largely familiar to you. It is the default
page, and groups features into familiar categories, such as Email, Domains, and
Databases. You’ll also see relevant information about your account at a glance in the right
Here you’ll find information such as your account’s IP address,
home directory, username, and more.
Here you’ll find information specific to the server, such as software
version numbers and path information.
Here you’ll find various statistics relating to your account’s resource usage,
such as disk, database, and domain usage.
The Solutions page, on the other hand, is totally new. It is intended for novice users of cPanel. It
features tutorials on common tasks, such as how to set up an email account and build a website.
Switching from Paper Lantern to Jupiter theme in cPanel
You don’t have to wait to see what the new Jupiter theme looks like. You can easily switch your
account to the Jupiter theme now to get a feel for the new interface. To do this, follow these steps:
- Log in to your cPanel account.
- In the right sidebar, under GENERAL INFORMATION, locate the Theme list box.
- Select Jupiter. cPanel switches to the Jupiter theme automatically.
- If you want to switch back to the Paper Lantern theme, just select paper_lantern in
the Theme list box.
cPanel has made it easy to switch to the Jupiter theme. With dedicated development and the
promise of more features, the benefits of making the switch to Jupiter outweigh the costs of
staying with the older Paper Lantern theme.
