    I'm looking into purchasing a cPanel license. It's my understanding that the license would be connected with my IP address, but the problem is that I have a dynamic IP. How can I get a license when I have a dynamic IP?

    Because cPanel is designed for commercial hosting, we only license publicly-visible, static IP addresses. We do not license dynamic, sticky, or internal IP addresses.

    When provisioning a new system I recommend ensuring the dedicated server has a static and publicly-visible IP address that does not change on a regular basis. A static IP address is an essential component when operating a dedicated server. Using a dynamic IP address will increase both the difficulty of and administrative time required for maintaining server configurations; it will also decrease the reliability of hosting DNS/name servers and some domain registrars may also restrict or prevent using a dynamic IP to register a new DNS/name server.
