    I also need HA and disappointed to see cPanel still doesn't offer any options.

    In particular, I'm surprised to learn that even in a failover situation, you'd need two licenses. What about if you set up round robin load balancing on three machines - does that mean three licenses? I think that's plain wrong if the sites / boxes are simple replications.

    With so many cloud services now available (e.g. Digital Ocean) if one wishes to implement a failover / fallback / HA server solution, it seems cPanel is not at the party. It's very disappointing to see there is nothing in the pipeline to address this critical feature.

    Also, I am surprised to learn that even if one does set up an HA solution, you will need a cpanel license for each replicated box.
