    Dear support team,
    I have brought up a new server with Cpanel installation script.
    For some reasons i don't want to buy cpanel license at this moment for this new server and also within the next 12 month and after that i need to but license for my IP

    My Question is that if i don't buy license what will happen to the web server,mail server, and database server within my CentOs server?

    All i know is that without paying for license you will loose access to Cpanel control panel interface. But what will happen to the installed services like Exim,Dovecot,Mysql,Apache, and ....

    Do they loose their functionality?

    Hello @enivid enivid,

    While the installed services won't stop running, you'll likely encounter issues with the services in the future that you won't be able to easily solve (e.g. expired SSL certificates, updates to PHP and Apache, etc). Generally, the best approach is to backup the account data, reinstall the OS without cPanel, setup the required services manually or through another control panel, and then restore the website data.

    Thank you.
