    Hey,

    what is the diffrence between this two licenses ?

    I know the VPS License is a License for a Virtual Server right ?

    But - correct me if i`m wrong - I can use a VPS License for my Rootserver ?

    You cannot use a VPS license on a physical (non-virtual) server. VPS licenses are typically cheaper, in which case, it wouldn't make sense for cPanel to allow you to install it on a physical server, would it?

    Virtualized servers have properties specific to the hypervisor that runs them. cPanel checks for these properties to determine whether the server is a VM or not. For example, VZ (openVZ, Virtuozzo) names its filesystem differently and puts special files in /proc (as does Xen). KVM displays the CPUs differently. I'm not sure that any of us know the exact criteria that cPanel uses to determine whether a server is a VM or not, and that's probably intentional.

    Please open a new thread for different topics :)

    You can only have one login per cPanel account. If you have WHM/Reseller access you can put each website under its own cPanel. Otherwise, you can set up FTP accounts for your different domains under the same cPanel.

    Hello :)

    I recommend reviewing the documentation for Web Host Manager if it's your first time using it. It's very helpful, especially for new users:

    Thank you.
