What is the difference between the dedicated cPanel license and the cPanel VPS license?

The cPanel dedicated and cPanel VPS licenses are identical in features and functionality.  The only difference is that a cPanel VPS license will only work on a virtual environment.


How many cPanel accounts can I have on 1 cPanel license?

You can have an UNLIMITED amount of cPanel accounts per server with just 1 cPanel license.  cPanel is licensed per server so you will need 1 cPanel license for each cPanel server that you are running.


How many cPanel licenses do I need if I am running multiple virtual environments on 1 dedicated server?

You will need 1 cPanel VPS license for each virtual environment that you are running on the server.  For example, if you have 5 virtual environments on a server you will need 5 cPanel VPS licenses.
