Servers with cPanel/WHM require a valid cPanel license 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 later, you can navigate 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 set the IP address for the service you wish to apply the license to your Client Area on the cPanel license product.
