JetBackup is a software that is used to backup and also restore your account to a previous state. It is the number one backup utility available for Linux servers. JetBackup is configured at server level to create cpanel backups of all accounts and store them either locally or remotely. In the event that the user requires a restore of the cpanel account, this can be effected via the JetBackup link on cpanel. JetBackup allows you to backup/restore partial parts of the site e.g. File Backup, Email Backup, DNS Zone Backup, SSL Certificate Backup, CronJob Backup and Full Backup.


CloudFlare is a content delivery network that is provided for free on Truehost Cloud hosting. On average, CloudFlare loads 200% faster and uses 60% less bandwidth. It is a distributed network of servers designed to:

  • increase page load speeds through caching of content

  • provide high availability via the redundant network of servers worldwide

  • increase security by blocking threats before they reach the site

CloudFlare optimizes web content delivery by storing duplicates of static content (such as CSS, JavaScript and image files) on its servers. Your web site content is served from the CloudFlare server located nearest to your visitors, which decreases page load times. If a server in CloudFlare’s network is very busy, web traffic is automatically routed to the next server nearest to your visitors.

To activate and configure CloudFlare, Please see our articles on the same here and here.

SSL certificates

Our cpanel allows for the installation of premium SSL certificates. The CSR is generated from the same cPanel and used in the SSL certificate store to acquire the SSL certificate which is installed via the SSL/TLS link on the cPanel. SSL certificate is the surest way to declare that your account is secure as this is visible via either the Green lock, Green bar or both as well as usage of HTTPS protocol.
