How to Purchase CloudLinux™


Last modified: March 30, 2021

Overview

CloudLinux™ offers a secure version of Linux that provides advanced functionality for shared hosting environments. cPanel & WHM servers allow you to buy a license and install CloudLinux from WHM’s Home interface.

Note:

Hosting providers can disable the alert for their licensed servers from Manage2’s Update Company Information interface (Manage2 >> Company >> Update Company Information).

Purchase license

Purchase from WHM

Note:

We added the integrated installation process in cPanel & WHM version 82 to the following interfaces:

  • WHM’s MultiPHP Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Software >> MultiPHP Manager).
  • WHM’s EasyApache 4 interface (WHM >> Home >> Software >> EasyApache 4).

We added the integrated installation process in cPanel & WHM version 86 to WHM’s Home interface.

Initiate the license purchase process.

On the server for which you wish to buy an CloudLinux license, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to WHM as the root user or as a reseller account with root-level privileges.

  2. Navigate to WHM’s Home interface.

    Note:

    You can also access the installation option in the following interfaces:

    • WHM’s MultiPHP Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Software >> MultiPHP Manager).
    • WHM’s EasyApache 4 interface (WHM >> Home >> Software >> EasyApache 4). You can find the upgrade option in the PHP Versions section of the interface.

  3. At the top of the Home interface, click Upgrade to CloudLinux.

    Important:

    If the CloudLinux banner does not appear, one of the following conditions exists on your server:

    • Your server does not support CloudLinux (for example, servers that run Amazon Linux).

    • Your hosting provider has disabled CloudLinux purchases.

    • Your server could not connect to the cPanel Store.

Log in to the cPanel Store.

If you have already logged in to your cPanel Store account, the system will request access to this account. Verify that the interface displays the correct cPanel Store username and server name. Then, click Allow Access. A new interface will appear.

Note:

To log in as a different cPanel Store account, click Sign In as a Different User. Then, perform the necessary steps to log in to the desired cPanel Store account.

Verify and complete your purchase.

When you buy CloudLinux through the WHM interface, the system automatically selects the appropriate license type for your server. It also detects the IPv4 address to license. Verify your license order and accept the legal agreements. Enter or select the desired payment information, and then click Pay Now.

  • After the cPanel Store processes your order, a confirmation message will appear. You will also receive an invoice email from the cPanel Store.

  • If the cPanel Store experiences problems with your order, an error message will appear. You may receive emails from cPanel Customer Service to help you resolve the issue.

Installation

After you complete your purchase, your browser will return to WHM and start the CloudLinux installation. After the installation is complete, you will receive a Success message.

Purchase from Manage2

To buy an CloudLinux license through Manage2, you must be a cPanel Partner.

Log in to your Manage2 account. Perform the following steps to add the CloudLinux package:
