Special cPanel Edition – Nick Koston: The Man Behind the Curtain

There are few companies that can say they’ve had as much of a hand in the development of the web hosting industry as cPanel.  J. Nick Koston, the founder and guiding force of cPanel, has been at the helm since its inception in 1996.
Looking back on the history of the Internet, you’ll find few who’ve had as much of an impact on its growth, development, and progress as Nick Koston.
