    I have a specific purpose in mind, but I imagune this could be used for many things.

    Have extra client data fields available to cpanel. This way, I could store my clients username and password for the billing software in cpanel variable, and I could then add a billing link to their control panel that includes the username and password in the url so they would not need to log on again.

    Is this realistic?

    Dear GotHosting,

    Yes,this can be done. You can integrate the Cpanel username and password with the billing software as other commercial features do. But mostly for security reasons they are not integrating this feature as it utilizes the RC4 encryption process.

    So is it true that we can check the value for the encrypted password in the mySQL table by running an RC4 ourselves and comparing?
