    hello,

    actually I am thinking about installing whm/cpanel on a dynamic cloud server with centos... Or should I use a dedicated server? What are the diffrences? Advantages and disadvantages?

    when I say dynamic cloud server, I mean the virtualisation technique... My Server is not a dedicated server its a server runing ona virtual machine with own OS and root acces... So which is better on stability, security, performance, usability, installation?

    Hello srkn61,

    A VPS machine will always be dependent on the host node for resources and can be impacted by traffic or resource usage from other VPS nodes (depending on the virtualization technique). A dedicated box would not have these limitations.

    This does not mean that a VPS machine cannot be stable, secure and perform well. It's entirely dependent on the provider chosen and the server being used. Also, your budget and the number of websites / accounts you will be hosting will determine which is the best choice. cPanel can install onto any of the platforms listed on this page:

    System Requirements | cPanel, Inc.

    As long as you are using one of the "Supported Virtual Environments" listed there, you can have cPanel & WHM installed onto the machine in most instances.

    If you have further questions to narrow down your requirements, please let us know.

    Thanks!
