Encompass was a web hosting control panel developed by the makers of cPanel for Windows Servers. Originally called cPanel4Windows (cPanel for Windows).

No Longer Supported

cPanel has officially announced the End of Life (EOF) for Encompass and it is no longer mantained. Their official announcement stated:

Enkompass version 3.0 will reach End of Life in February 2014.

In accordance with our EOL policy, Enkompass will continue to function on servers after it reaches EOL. However, we will not provide further updates (for example, security fixes and installations) for Enkompass version 3.0 after it reaches its EOL date.

Support for Enkompass will no longer be available in the ticket system, but community support is still available on our forums.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

The download for Enkompass and the related forums have since been removed from cPanel's website.


For Windows servers, most people have turned to Plesk as an alternative.
