If you’ve got a web hosting account, you’ll probably be using cPanel to add domains, create email accounts and check on disk usage.
For as long as I can remember, the default cPanel theme has been X3, which, if you take a look at it today, looks incredibly outdated – both the UI design and the icons.
Though people swear by cPanel/WHM as the best and industry-standard web hosting control panel, I have to agree with others when they say it looks ugly.

So I was happy when I heard cPanel are planning to replace the outdated theme altogether with a newer, flat design theme called Paper Lantern. The new Paper Lantern cPanel theme is available on cPanel 11.46+, and will soon completely replace X3.
What are your thoughts on the new Paper Lantern theme? I’m still getting used to it, but I think it’s because I’ve been used to using X3 for so long!
I take it back about cPanel being ugly. The Paper Lantern theme is pretty damn nice.
