Servers with cPanel/WHM require a cPanel license in order to be utilized.
Hostwinds offers licenses for both our Cloud/VPS products, and Dedicated servers.
When purchasing a new Cloud Server or Dedicated Server, the option to include the cPanel license during checkout is available.
To purchase a license at a later time, users can navigate to this link from their client area, and select the license you require.
cPanel VPS License: This is the license to select if you have a Cloud Server
Dedicated cPanel License: This is the license to select if you have a dedicated server.
The two licenses are not interchangeable, a 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.
