The price of cPanel licenses is set according to the number of users on a particular cPanel server. The licenses are available for VPS and dedicated servers that are now named Cloud and Metal, the difference being that for the dedicated server package, i.e. the Metal package, the minimum amount of users per package is 100, whereas the Cloud package for VPS servers offers two cheaper licenses: a Cloud Admin license which can host up to 5 users per cPanel server, and a Cloud Pro license which can host up to 30 users per cPanel server. Packages for up to 100 users are the same for VPS and dedicated servers.
An account, often referred to as “the cPanel user” or “cPanel account” is an account used by the end user for logging into the cPanel interface in order to manage their website or e-mail. It should be pointed out that the total number of users on a cPanel server, in terms of licenses, is determined by the number of active and suspended users on that server. Therefore, cPanel checks the number of users on a server and counts them, whether they are active or suspended.
In order to check the number of users on your cPanel server, all you need to do is log in to WHM on the server and click on “List accounts”. The page that will open will display all the users on that server and their total number.
In case of “outgrowing” the maximum number of users on a server, your license will need to be upgraded to the next larger package. If the license isn’t upgraded, your access to WHM will be suspended until you upgrade the license or reduce the number of users on that server.
Yes. The total number of users on a cPanel server, in terms of licenses, is determined by the number of active and suspended users on that server. Therefore, cPanel checks the number of users on a server and counts them, whether they are active or suspended.
