Run this command:

# curl http://www.cpanel.net/apps/myip/
That will return an IP address. Copy and paste that IP address into this page:

License Verification - cPanel Inc.

It is likely going to show that the license on the IP address is expired. If your hosting provider is supposed to include cPanel with your hosting package, talk to your hosting provider about this. If you want a license directly from cPanel, please contact customer service for help acquiring a valid license.

You can also submit a ticket at no charge so we can look at this problem directly.
