Learn the Difference between cPanel License and WHM
Control Panel (cPanel)
cPanel license is designed for managing particular domains or hosting accounts on the hosting server. End users can control everything from adding/removing email accounts to administering MySQL databases and others. A cPanel license provides you with an online Linux-based graphical interface (GUI) used as a control panel to simplify website and server management. Having a cPanel license allows you to publish websites, manage domains, organize web files, create email accounts, and more. A cPanel license is one of the most popular control panels in the United States. Many web hosting companies supply a cPanel license to customers as part of their web hosting package.
A cPanel license offers two interfaces, a user interface called cPanel and a server management interface called Web Host Manager (WHM). This combination allows users to manage their website and supplies hosting providers with tools to manage the server.
