Question

c-Panel or WHM, What I Need?

Bit confused about what to use - which command line to use - when trying to install c-Panel.

First, what I need is regular c-Panel, like the one you get when you install Wordpress, like the one you get when purchasing managed hosting providers.

I need c-Panel to run my websites and tracking software.

So that being said - altho I can see on cpanel.com website - I need only c-Panel and not WHM?

That being said, I assume should run this line in the initial step of installing c-Panel: wget -N http://httpupdate.cPanel.net/latest-dnsonly

or I am wrong.

Kindly let me know

Thanks

Hello, MkDroplet

cPanel/WHM is also available in our marketplace https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/cpanel-whm and you can quickly deploy your cPanel droplet using the one-click app.

cPanel is a third party application managed through our Marketplace. New installations of cPanel come with a 15 day free trial. For further use beyond that point a valid license will need to be purchased directly through cPanel. https://store.cpanel.net/view/cpanel/license-options?type=VPS

Please refer to below link for further details:

Hope this helps!

Hello friend!

If you’re looking to install cPanel, this guide may be helpful: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-cpanel-on-a-virtual-server-running-centos-6

Although I would use CentOS 7, there’s not much (if any) difference in these steps. As for cPanel and WHM, WHM is the admin side of cPanel. All cPanel servers have WHM, but on shared hosting your hosting provider is the admin who uses WHM. When installed on our servers, you are the admin. Make sure you are ready for that challenge, because you may not be aware of how much effort those shared hosting companies are putting into keeping those servers online, and that will become your role as admin.
