    Thinking of Buying my own hardware and co-locating it in a local datacenter.

    Now all my Servers have been rented dedicated machines and the Cpanel Licence has been handled By the NOC.

    I notice there are several resellers selling external Cpanel licences for around $38/mo but how do I know for sure that they authorised to do so?


    Also I believe Cpanel do VPS licenceing, What are the conditions imposed on this type of licencing (Other than it has to be on a VPS obvisouly).

    I'm consdiering uing something like VMware server to split the machine into sepearte VPS machines .

    There are only 3 places you can officially acquire your cPanel/WHM licensing:
    - cPanel, Inc
    - Your Data Center if they offer cPanel/WHM licensing
    - cPanel Authorized Distributors: http://www.cpanel.net/partners/partner-lookup.cgi?showall=1&distonly=1

    If you are unsure if a company is an official partner of ours, you can look them up at http://www.cPanel.net/partners - note, you will likely need to check the option to also show companies not offering Fast Update to see their listing.

    VPS licensing of cPanel/WHM is available. However, cPanel, Inc does not offer such licensing directly. You will need to consult your data center or one of our distributors for such licensing.

    You will need 1 license for each virtual machine/VPS and there is a minimum of 3 VPS licenses per physical server as a condition of our VPS licensing. Other than that, the terms and conditions are very similar to that of our dedicated server license (with obvious exception that it must be used only on a VPS).

    If you have any additional questions, please drop an email to sales@cpanel.net

    Looked at a couple of the distributors websites didn't see mention of the 3 Licence minimum on the VPS licence.

    Actually there doesn't appear to be much information about what Qualifies for VPS licensing on their page.

    At this time, it's up to them to enforce that condition. However, that is part of the agreement they sign when they become a cPanel Partner NOC (including cPanel Distributors) to resell cPanel/WHM licenses.
