Important information

Before you install cPanel & WHM or cPanel DNSONLY, you must know the following information:

  • Because cPanel is designed for commercial hosting, we only license publicly visible, static IP addresses. We do not license dynamic, sticky, or internal IP addresses.
  • We do not provide an uninstaller. After you install our software, you must reformat the server to remove it.
  • Only install cPanel & WHM on a freshly installed operating system.
  • We recommend that you use the cPanel & WHM installer, which will install all of the services that it needs. If you install services before you install cPanel & WHM, you will encounter compatibility problems. When you install your operating system, deselect software package groups like Gnome, KDE, or other GUI desktop environments.
  • You will need a package handler like yum. This package handler is included in default installations of CentOS and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®.
