    I noticed that there is a "free" license for educational institutions. I have used cpanel for my private domains but I wanted to know how I can use this in the educational arena.

    Considering the following as the main webpage:

    myschool.edu

    Is it possible to use cpanel to create virtual user webpages? Looking for something like the following:

    myschool.edu/student1
    myschool.edu/faculty1

    Where the student/faculty member could login and manipulate their files only. I could do this with just system accounts on Linux/Unix, but the graphical interface would be very helpful.


    From what I've seen of cpanel, I could do the following (subdomains):
    student1.myschool.edu
    faculty1.myschool.edu

    But that is not what I'm looking for.

    Dear Stratford,

    Creating virtual webpages like what you have said is not possible through cpanel.But, instead we can create subdomains through cpanel. Using .htaccess you can allow access to priveleged users. But you have to create subdomains and set .htaccess for each user.
