FAQ about CyberPanel

Is CyberPanel secure?

CyberPanel is a web hosting control panel that uses OpenLiteSpeed as its web server. The security of CyberPanel depends on its development practices, configuration, server environment, third-party integrations, and user practices. Developers regularly release updates to patch known vulnerabilities, so keeping CyberPanel updated to the latest version is crucial. A default installation might not be optimized for security, making it essential to configure according to best practices. Additionally, the foundational security of the server, user habits, and any additional software or plugins can influence CyberPanel's security. Overall, CyberPanel is considered relatively secure when best practices are followed, but no software can be deemed 100% secure.
