That's probably for large(er)-scale Web hosts.

I love it, but at times I report problems, which give my Web host a miserable
* Anonymous FTP dropped due to security issues (undisclosed). No proper
replacement from cPanel for 8 months; and I am still waiting...
* SpamAssassin keeps crashing (half a dozen times already).
* Logs are not being archives and stats are not being automatically generated
* BoxTrappers and some other added features (e.g. cPanel-bound scripts and
utilities) dropped temporarily, for whatever reason.
I know these are not directly related to cPanel, but they are still worth
mentioning. The host seems to require a lot of support from the cPanel team.
