lynx and wget are installed by default on most modern Linux distributions. Note, wget is often used to install cPanel/WHM itself.

The easiest way to test for this is to create an account with no shell access and set up a cron job to see if those utilities will work. Typically, in a cPanel/WHM environment even with no shell access, such utilities will function normally.

Hi,

If your a customer ask your host. The reason I say this is we do not allow public access to wget, however we did copy wget to a different name for security reasons and allow the customers to use that modified name.
