cPanel Solo License
Last modified: December 24, 2019
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 an Auto-Scaling account package. Auto-Scaling is a dynamic pricing structure that scales between cPanel’s pricing tiers. The number accounts on the server at the time of invoicing affect the account’s billing. By default, all Partner licenses are on this package.
Servers that use a cPanel Solo license will not display the following interfaces:
