    Hi all,

    Just wondering on this one - have been looking at various articles/guides on running WHM and a couple of DNSONLY EC2s on Amazon AWS. All of them include using a VPC but none of them say why.

    Could any one enlighten me please?

    Hello,

    VPC makes the network configuration a straightforward process, which is useful when installing and using cPanel. Amazon documents VPC at:

    This section in-particular lists several reasons why it's beneficial:
