I am looking at purchasing cPanel for my dedicated server while I move into a couple of new business ideas, A couple of the main things I'm looking into is the Shopping Cart software that comes with Cpanel and the Ability to administer the majority of fucntions within my server, I have had a little experience with cPanel in the past and I realise how much easier it makes life.

However I would like to know what exactly WHM is as I dont recall hearing anything about this before :S

Also how customizable is the shopping cart software and do you need to pay extra for this / how many times can you use it?

Thanks and Sorry for the noob quesitons :)
