Hello, all

You can also check our existing tutorial on how to install cPanel on a virtual server:

You can also quickly deploy a cPanel/WHM droplet from 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.

Hope this helps!

cPanel is a convenient application that allows users to administer servers through a GUI interface instead of the traditional command line. Although the installation for cPanel is relatively simple, the script does take several hours to run. Here's how to install cPanel on a virtual server running Centos 6
  • I noticed your recent comment. cPanel installs default resolvers that apparently fail. I recently moved some cPanel sites at DO and now have blocked email and resolver errors.

    I run my own DNS, with registrar pointing to MY servers. On installation, each cPanel config apparently “asks” DO what to do and assigns resolvers and Should I NOT use these DO nameservers; should I only use, and Should I use MY nameservers as resolvers for cPanel web hosts, and something else ( as resolvers for cPanel nameservers themselves?
