I have a WebHostManager (WHM) account on a single server. This is currently provided by my server hosting provider.

I am looking at moving servers to one which does not inherently feature WHM / CPanel as standard. I would be happy to install WHM/CPanel to run consistency for the [new] server. However, looking at CPanel Pricing this page seems to be VERY unclear.

What is an "account"? Is it a CPanel account? A WHM account? A user account? I am a single user with a single account number for my WHM (which holds multiple CPanel accounts) so I envisage I am covered by "CPanel Solo (Metal)" but, this is "cloud only" on your purchase page and the "Metal version" is advertised here - as my new server may be "in the cloud" but is still a filesystem-in-the-sky - but the pricing policy is still extremely ambiguous. The pricing page has no details on each option as to what it contains.

CPanel, please advise which is the most suitable purchase for a single WHM Server filesystem hosting multiple CPanel accounts all running from the same server IP pair.

Hey there! "account" is cPanel account - the actual cPanel account you create from WHM >> Create a New Account.

If your server is not using dedicated hardware, you could use the Admin or Pro license to host multiple accounts.

Thanks for the info.

paying ~$55 dollars (~£50 per month) for a single WHM account for a single server is insane. That's more than the cost of the server itself, and it's a decent spec'd device!!!
