Packages are limitations on resources an account is allowed to use. For example, you may specify how much disk space an account is allotted. These limitations are bundled and saved so that they can be applied to accounts later. This makes it easier to set up new accounts, since you can sell predefined packages to your cPanel account holders and resellers.

You can modify the settings for package extensions when you perform the following:

To learn more about package extensions, read the Package Extensions documentation.

When you upgrade to 11.40, packages that are named extensions are automatically renamed package.extensions.random_number, where random_number is a randomly generated number related to your process ID. New packages cannot be named extensions.
