Haven’t been able to find this info anywhere.
Exactly what is classed as an “account” when setting up licensing?

For example, let’s say I want to run 6 VPS servers with 5 domains on each - can I use the one cPanel Pro license with 30 accounts to run each of these separate VPS?

Following, if that would work to run multiple VPS on multiple IP addresses - does 1 account count as 1 reseller on the VPS, with unlimited domains underneath, or would I be using 1 account for a reseller, then 1 account for each domain set up underneath?

You must have one cPanel license for each server. There are two parts to cPanel & WHM - WHM being accessible only to a privileged user such as root or a reseller you provide access to, this portion is server and global account management. There is cPanel where each account created has its own user interface. Each of these users has access within their own account to make changes that affect their account.
