Servers with cPanel/WHM require a valid cPanel license in order to be utilized. Hostwinds offers licenses for both our Cloud VPS products and Dedicated servers.
Please note that these licenses will only work with Hostwinds servers.
When purchasing a new Cloud VPS Server or Dedicated Server, the option to include the cPanel license during checkout is available. To purchase a license at a later time, you can navigate to this link from your client area, and select the license you require.
cPanel VPS License: This is the license to select if you have a Cloud VPS Server
Dedicated cPanel License: This is the license to select if you have a Dedicated Server.
The two licenses are not interchangeable. A Cloud VPS license will not work on a Dedicated Server and vice versa. Once ordered, you will be able to set the IP address for the service you wish to apply the license to from your Client Area, on the cPanel license product.
