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?
Yeah i know. I already have a dedicated license.

But how can cpanel know it`s a virtual or dedicated server ?

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.

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.
