    As its for vps only, it would seem legit.

    Why wouldn't it be? There's nothing unusual with it.

    What diddnt make sense, is how do they know whether the licence will be used on a VDS/VPS or a dedicated server? Is there somthing built into latest.sh to check?

    Yea, shouldn't it be able to be used on any server?

    They restrict the license to a single IP address. I think it can be used on a server.

    cPanel VPS license costs $7/month actually So those guys are making a decent profit on each of those VPS licenses. Those rates are from the cPanel NOC agreement we have signed.

    cPanel for servers is more expensive. between $15/month to $35/month depending on your volume.

    There are several things that can be used on a Virtuozzo server to 'fingerprint' and determine that it is actually a VPS. It would be my guess that cPanel has added code to check some of these, I'm unsure of how this might work on UML/Xen though. We definitely have VPS accounts with more than one active IP that are using cPanel though.

    Well, the information I stated is something freely available and can be known if you request information on cPanel's NOC agreement.

    I believe its good for consumers to know what licensing fees hosts pay for the software they get. The more information consumers have, the better decisions they can make and the better it is for the industry.

    I don't believe CPanel licesing cost is freely available. Let those who need to know contact CPanel and fill out the NOC agreement to get the pricing.

    Yes, and perhaps you can also disclose what you pay to your upstream provider, your colo provider, etc to assist customer in making their decision.

    Again, big guys don't air their costs to the public. I can understand it if somebody else mentione their CPanel licensing cost, but from you? That one did surprise me.

    Dave, your concern is unjustified.

    cPanel will give you this information without signing anything. Microsoft will give you licensing information on their products without signing anything.

    I come here to share my knowledge with other WHT members. I have frequently stated what prices are paid under the SPLA for SQL Server or Windows which is something you can freely obtain from Microsoft as well. I have frequently helped hosts or people out here with queries related to MS licensing or with even windows server related issues.

    cPanel licensing is something you can freely obtain from cPanel, whether you are a consumer or host. FYI, we do not sell cPanel nor have any cPanel servers.

    My motive for stating the cPanel price for VPS was because the original poster asked whether it was possible for them to offer cPanel VPS at $15/month. Yes it is indeed possible was what I wanted to say.

    I was not referring to upstream rates or colo rates. But yes, knowing what servers cost, what licensing rates host pay, a general idea on bandwidth rates, etc. allow a consumer to know what a host can offer profitably and what a host cannot offer without overselling.
