Hi all,

I am using dedicated cpanel license but we buy the licence from time to time to update cpanel because we use it for personal purpose so we don't need WHM and Cpanel access.

Today when we tried to buy license we got the email that we need pay extra 64$ because of reactivation fee. What is that and why this time we need pay it? Its same price as we used Cpanel but we didn't have access to WHM/Cpanel. I think it's not fair we need pay for something that we didn't use! Are have any solution or we need request refund of paid license and move to zPanel?


Thank you for your recent licensing order for IP This licensed IP address previously incurred a licensing fee (accessed by cPanel, Inc.) which is due prior to activation of this IP address. As stated in cPanel’s End User Licensing Agreement, once a server’s cPanel license is expired, all cPanel software must be immediately deleted or uninstalled from the server. cPanel, Inc. has detected that cPanel software was previously installed and running while the IP/server was unlicensed within the last 2 months.

The reactivation fee is being assessed by cPanel Inc. and being collected by cPanel direct, all cPanel partners, and all cPanel distributors based on IP ADDRESS. For additional information regarding cPanel’s End User Licensing Agreement please visit the following link:

| cPanel, Inc.

We have added a cPanel license reactivation fee onto your newly created invoice for this licensed IP address. Once this invoice has been paid your cPanel license will be instantly activated.

Please log into your client area and navigate to your invoices section to pay this invoice OR click on the link below:
