    I'm reading many USA companies are forced to put backdoors in their products:

    U.S. enables Chinese hacking of Google - CNN.com

    It would be good knowing the CPanel position or silence about this.

    Take an example: a customer send an e-mail with a pendent industrial patent or a similar sensible thing. Even if the message was cyphered, next month he check how his patent has been stolen, and he goes to the police and the server's owner is jailed.

    Even when I'm not an USA citizen, I don't have inconvenience if the NSA wants to check my server. Real concern is when there is other type of professional people who can discover these holes.

    Should CPanel include a clause about this possibility? It can be possible in order to protect their costumers according the USA laws?.

    best,

    cPanel is not a service provider(meaning we do not provide hosting services), but rather software that runs on servers and that is utilized by hosting companies.

    We do not handle the policies of these service providers.
