    I'm interested in creating an open-source PHP API for WHM and cPanel.
    The goal is to address the limitations of the official API.

    Would releasing this API violate cPanel's TOS?

    While we have no objections to this, please make sure you use the xml-api not the old one as it will eventually be deprecated and removed.

    Would it be legal for me to resell my API?

    It would not be based on the official APIs in any way whatsoever.

    Please send us an email to sales@cpanel.net so we can discuss this in detail.

    I will note that any code that calls the interface and scripts directly rather than going through our APIs, scripts and hooks is subject to breaking without notice.
