The RV Skin Manager
The cPanel Control Panel, being the industry’s leading Control Panel, offers various skins, which can change the way a Control Panel looks like. The default skins supplied by cPanel usually start with the letter “x”: x, x2, x3, etc. These skins are designed by the cPanel staff and represent their idea of how a Control Panel should look like. If you take a look at the other available skins in a cPanel account, you will see themes starting with the letters “rv”, which means that they have been created with the so-called RVSkin Manager. The advantage of the RVSkin Manager is that it allows you to not only modify the look and feel of the cPanel Control Panel by using different color themes and menu arrangements, but to also specify which features of the Control Panel will be actually displayed, which allows the creation of more feature limited, cheap cPanel hosting plans. The RVSkin Manager allows the creation of cPanel themes in various languages: Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese Shift_JIS, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Traditional Chinese and Turkish. You can access the RVSkin Manager from the WHM reseller control panel – the RVSkin Manager menu is under the Plugins section. This tool is available with all our cPanel reseller web hosting plans.
