How do I restart just a single website WITHOUT restarting Apache? I don't see the need to restart the entire web server over just one site timing out. I would rather just have a button to click which says something like "restart website" next to the name of each site. If you could tell me where to find that in cPanel or add it in your next update that would be great.

IIS has the functionality I speak of.

Hey there! IIS uses a different structure to load and manage domains, so there is no equivalent on an Apache server as that isn't necessary. There isn't anything that would require an individual website to be restarted on a cPanel machine.

If you have Nginx installed you can clear the cache for a certain domain from the main page of the cPanel interface.
