Is it possible to install cPanel & WHM on my CentOS droplet?


I’m pretty new with VPS - how does one go about installing cPanel & WHM? Is there any guides I can follow?

Hey, @teddy

Yes you can install cPanel/WHM on your CentOS droplet. You can either deploy it manually or use the one-click install app from our marketplace.

We have an existing tutorial on how to install cPanel/WHM on CentOS 6. If you’re CentOS version is newer you can still follow the listed steps in the tutorial as the process is not different from installing it on CentOS 6, the same rules apply to CentOS 7. You can check the tutorial here:

You can also quickly deploy a droplet using the one-click droplet from our marketplace. 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.

Please refer to below link for further details:

Hope this helps! Regards, Alex

Does it still make sense to install cpanel for wordpress in digital ocean?

Friends, <br> <br>WHM also want to use, is it safe? <br> <br>I fear that the drop starts to present problems. <br> <br>Do you think it safe to use in WHM DO?

@Stuart, you can set both ns1 and ns2 to the same IP address. I recommend setting up another cPanel DNSONLY droplet though.

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.

Thanks raiyu. I thought that there might be some restrictions

Yes, you get full root access so you can install any software that you like including both cPanel and WHM.
