How to Renew cPanel License

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 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.
