cPanel Solo® License

Last modified: November 28, 2022


With a cPanel Solo® license, WHM users can manage a single cPanel account from the WHM interface. This license allows users to upgrade from shared hosting to a single-account (Solo) Cloud-based hosting solution. Its cost makes it a great entry point for many new or returning cPanel & WHM users.

  • This license limits the functionality that you would receive with a standard license.

  • This license requires cPanel & WHM version 66.0.25 or later.

Downgrading to a cPanel Solo license

Currently, you can only downgrade to a cPanel Solo license if you are a cPanel Certified Partner with a fixed package. cPanel Solo package is not available to auto-scale during the monthly billing cycle. You must scale the cPanel Solo package manually.
