Hello All,
We are running a Ubuntu 14.04 x64 distribution, and would like to know if we can install cPanel on the server.

Thanks in advance

  • Yes you can. I actually use the DO droplet to provide hosting services to my clients. You would have to pay for the license tho which is anywhere between $10 to $15 per month

    This tutorial might help you configuring it

  • Can you point me to any authenticated place from where I can get a cPanel license at cheaper cost ??

  • The only trusted source to buy cpanel is only at

  • No. Cpanel doesn't support Debian based distro and ubunutu by definition is Debian based.
    Even Fedora is not supported by cpanel although it is similar to Redhat or CentOS.

I just realized you said ubuntu. Sorry you will need to use centos

  • Thanks, I am still figuring this whole cloud server thing out. I have always used dedicated hosting services. Thanks for your responses.

Depending on which features of cPanel you need, you might instead try ServerPilot which does support 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04.
