What is cPanel license?

cPanel is a proprietary software that you can install on a Linux server to turn it either into a web server, a mail server or a DNS server, with an intuitive graphical user interface for easier management.

And as a software, its use or redistribution is governed by a contract between you ("the end user") and cPanel LLC.

The most significant effect of this form of licensing is that the end-user must accept the cPanel software license terms, agree and abide by these before you can use cPanel.

How many types of cPanel licenses are there?

There are 3 distinctive types of cPanel licenses and these determines the kind of features that will be available to you and your users on the server:

  1. Premier Admin cPanel & WHM License
  2. PRO cPanel & WHM License
  3. Admin cPanel & WHM License

As of the time, cPanel DNSONLY which integrate perfectly with full-feature cPanel & WHM hosting servers and allows you to run a dedicated physical nameserver is free.
It does not require a cPanel license of any kind.

DNSONLY servers allows web hosting providers to create and manage a DNS server cluster. DNS changes made on the web hosting server are immediately synced to the other servers in the cluster, ensuring that all DNS information is up to date.

What type of cPanel license do I need?

The kind of cPanel license you will use largely depend on your use case.

There are 3 distinctive types of cPanel licenses and these determines the kind of features that will be available to you and your users on the server.

While cPanel will automatically detect the kind of server environment during the automated cPanel & WHM installation process, knowing the right kind license to purchase for your server is crucially important since you wouldn't want the installation process to hang up on you.

Premier cPanel & WHM License

This version of cPanel license is designed to be installed on a fully dedicated bare metal server in which 100% of the hardware is allocated to the operations of such machine.

It is often used by web hosting companies to serve their shared hosting customers.

Given the benefits that a dedicated server brings (high performance, security, email stability, and control), it is also ideal for multiple or single websites that receive a large volume of traffic.

PRO cPanel & WHM License

This is a cPanel license that is designed to be use in supported virtual environments and comes with the exact same features as a Dedicated Server License.

Out of the box, cPanel supports KVM, Oracle VM VirtualBox, VirtualBox OSE, VMware® Server, VMware ESX Server, Xen, XenEnterprise™, XenExpress™ and XenServer™ without additional restrictions.

A cPanel VPS is the most cost-effective solution than a fully dedicated server when you need to have a more greater control over your content.

PRO cPanel & WHM License during the initial installation process optimizes the initial configuration to make the best use of memory and processors in a virtualized environment.

Admin cPanel License

This license was designed for cPanel users who want manage 5 cPanel accounts from the WHM interface.

Is cPanel license free?

No!

cPanel licenses are not free and you should not accept a cPanel license that purports to be free forever unless you received it from a genuine source (your web host or a friend) and have confirmed its validity.

Having said, cPanel do provide a free 14 days trial evaluation window whereby you try out every aspect of the cPanel license you want.

So while cPanel license is not free, it does give you the opportunity to experience it in full.

How much is a cPanel license?

  • The standard price for Premier cPanel & WHM License License in cPanel Store is $45.00 per month.
  • For a VPS license, the price is $30.00 per month.
  • For Admin cPanel License, the price is $20.00 per month.

However, if you need more than 1 cPanel license or want to pay annually, then the cost of each of these license becomes more cheaper.

How do I check my cPanel license?

When you have bought your cPanel license or want to check its status, you can do that using two methods.

via a browser

From your browser, visit https://verify.cpanel.net/app/verify

Once there, input the public IP address of your server and click the “Verify License“ button.

The license verification tool will display a server's cPanel & WHM license history and its validity.

via the Terminal

You can check whether your license is invalid or expired by running any of the following commands to obtain your license's IP address:

curl -w '\n' -s http://myip.cpanel.net/v1.0/
curl -w '\n' -s http://myip.cpanel.net:2089/v1.0/
											

However, if you need more than 1 cPanel license or want to pay annually, then the cost of each of these license becomes more cheaper.

If your IP address is already licensed and you still experience problems, run the following script as the root user to verify your license & fix the invalid cPanel license error:

/usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt
