If, when logging into WHM on your VPS, Cloud, or Dedicated Server, you receive a message stating that the license is expired, there are steps you can take to attempt to resolve this issue.
How to Renew cPanel License
Before beginning this process, you can check if your license is valid at http://verify.cpanel.net by entering the IP address of your server.
Step 1: Log into your server via SSH using a client such as PuTTY
Step 2: Execute the command /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt
Step 3: Refresh your browser or log out and back into your WHM panel
Step 4: Confirm that the message has cleared
If the license is not renewed, the issue may be related to your main IP address being different than the one originally licensed or some other issue that would require support intervention.
If the command above does not resolve the issue for you, or you cannot access your server via shell, please feel free to contact support via live chat or a ticket so we can assist you with getting this resolved.
