You can definitely use cPanel – you’d choose the VPS license. You do, however, need to be aware of the requirements for cPanel.

cPanel installs and runs Apache, PHP, MySQL, Exim, and multiple other services, so I would start with a 2GB Droplet (that’s my recommendation). That should give you enough room to host a few sites and get a feel for how well they’ll perform.

One thing to keep in mind is that installing a control panel is not an all-in-one solution that you install and call it a day with. You’ll still need to know how to manage a server, how to secure a server, and how to update & upgrade your server.

Preferably you wouldn’t use cPanel in the first place, but VPS license if you insist.

Hello, @hamzok7860

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!
