    Hi All,

    I am a bit lost, I am new to cPanel and I used to host with hosting companies and I want to move away from that by having a server with cPanel. I understand the cPanel is a software, I need help with the question below answered
    does it come with server installed or you have to install for yourself ?
    does cPanel server with cPanel on it ?

    I am thinking to start hosting for some clients what is the best and most cost effective way to have a server with cPanel ?

    Thank you in advance

    Kind Regards,

    Hello Abdi,

    For VPS accounts or dedicated servers, you'd typically install cPanel after your data center or hosting provider sets up the operating system (e.g. CentOS) on your behalf. We provide a full installation guide on the following URL:

    Installation Guide - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    When purchasing a shared hosting plan or reseller plan from a company that offers cPanel, then it's already installed by your hosting provider.

    We're happy to help answer any additional questions you might have.

    Thank you.
