Yes, you get full root access so you can install any software that you like including both cPanel and WHM.
Thanks raiyu. I thought that there might be some restrictions
I installed cPanel on my droplet. Only restriction is that it must be CentOS. Took roughly 42 minutes for the install to complete. Only concern is being limited to one IP address as nameservers ideally require two. However, some say you can get around that and only really need one. I'm in the midst of trying it out.
@Stuart, you can set both ns1 and ns2 to the same IP address. I recommend setting up another cPanel DNSONLY droplet though.

WHM also want to use, is it safe?

I fear that the drop starts to present problems.

Do you think it safe to use in WHM DO?
