  1. I’ve changed my cPanel to Paper Lantern, but it doesn’t look like your screenshot above.

    How can I get the “General Information” column to show? …As well as anything else I can customize…

    With this new cPanel, does this mean I can finally use HTTP/2 ?

    1. We have just begun pushing out updates to the cPanel interface, and they should be all updated by June 30, read our full announcement here.

      If you are using the older x3 theme, the same information will be listed on the left under “Stats.” If you are using the older Paper Lantern theme, click the “Statistics” link (looks like a graph logo) on the left to view this information.

      There is an open ticket with cPanel to implement http/2, but it is still in the experimental stages.

      Thank you,
