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
