HOUSTON, TX – In a commitment to best protect the confidentiality and trust of customers and site owners around the globe, on Wednesday September 27, cPanel, Inc. released its first comprehensive law enforcement transparency report. This initial report covers all subpoenas, requests, and search warrants issued to cPanel by any government worldwide between the 18-month period of January 1, 2016, through June 1, 2017.

During this time period cPanel, Inc. received no subpoenas, search warrants or requests form any government agency and no information on customer or customer data was released. This report further goes into detail about government demands for customer data, content that has been permanently disabled under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and customer accounts that have been disabled by due to Terms of Service violations.


Further demonstrating its commitment to transparency, cPanel also released a guide to the customer information it maintains, and the specific means by which government agencies may request access to it. This “Law Enforcement Guide” defines cPanel’s legal obligations when it is required to produce customer information, and allows customers to better understand the circumstances under which that information will be disclosed.

“cPanel is committed to our customers around the globe,” explains David Snead, cPanel’s General Counsel. “We are demonstrating that by being the first hosting automation company to disclose under what circumstances we are required to provide customer data to governments. Our transparency report demonstrates that, over the past 18 months, no information has been released to any government, anywhere. We’re the only company in our sector who can make this statement.”
