Cpanel is more geared towards apache/httpd/PHP hosting, in a traditional sense. There's been some discussion of Node integration with cpanel, but I don't think it's something you can expect any time soon.
See this forum post on cpanel.net forums:
We are looking to run a private community using NodeBB but we seem to be unable to lock down things like the user profiles and user list; both the pages and the API endpoints. Is there something I am missing or is it just not possible to user NodeBB to run a private community?
I'm looking to do the same thing, I can't seem to find a way to prevent anonymous users from viewing the users list
Well at least I am not the only one @BDHarrington7 - I have changed this thread to a question thread and marked it as unsolved.
Make user info private doesn't work?
Yes, that works I did see it, but I thought it was for not displaying e-mail, birthday, posts, etc.
Yep thats fixed it both in the API and in front end. Thank you.
