The license is not included with the droplet. You can purchase the cPanel License directly from their official website at:

Hope that this helps!

Hi @giantaquamarinecoral,

If you install cPanel Droplet using the Marketplace, you would be only charged for the Droplet.

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 this link for further details:
