How to Manage A cPanel License

As of January 2020, cPanel is now licensed based on the number of active cPanel accounts on the server. As such, we have a license management system now available inside of the Surge Control Panel.

In this article, we'll walk you through how to add, delete, and manage cPanel licenses on your ServerMania Hybrid or Dedicated Servers.

How cPanel Is Licensed

You will need a cPanel license for the primary server IP of any server you wished to have cPanel licensed by us. Licenses are not pooled between servers, so if you have 5 servers each with 1 cPanel user, you will need to pay for 5 cPanel licenses.
