How to verify the cPanel License in 2023?

How to verify the cPanel License

cPanel is one of the most popular web hosting control panels. A valid key is necessary to run the panel with any server or VPS. But, there are a few cases in which many providers don’t provide the genuine cPanel service. They use bypassed cPanel, which you may call cracked or nulled cPanel. So, it’s essential to verify the cPanel license key to get authentic service.

Not having a genuine cPanel may cause vulnerability issues such as information leaking, hacking, website down issues, redirects to another website, overloading issues, etc. Sometimes, you may not get urgent security updates.

Today we’ll discover how to verify the cPanel license key for a server.

Step 01: Find out the Server IP:

We need to find out the server IP first. There are multiple ways to find the IP. Here I’m sharing a few of them.

  1. Get the server IP by asking the provider.
  2. Get the IP from Domain Name. Click here & write the domain name to get the IP.

    Getting Server IP from Domain Name

    If the Domain Name uses a proxy service such as Cloudflare, then this technique may not work.

  3. Find the Server IP by login into the server. There is a section named Share IP Address, and that will be the IP for that server.

Finding Server IP from cPanel Interface

There will be more options to get the IPs of a server. I’ll write a separate article on it. Many servers have multiple IPs. So, ensure first which is the right one. Match the IP with the cPanel Shared IP Address. If you find an IP from Domain Name but also discover that the IP does not match the cPanel, ask your provider if he uses any proxy IP for it.

 

Step 02: Ensuring that the server has a cPanel facility:

Every provider doesn’t provide services with cPanel. So, it must be ensured that the server is running with cPanel. We need to add a port number after the IP to check it. The cPanel default IP is 2083. So the format must be <IP>:2083.

Example: If the IP is 111.222.333.444, the format will be 111.222.333.444:2083.

Write this format into the address bar of any browser and hit ENTER. If the cPanel login interface is displayed with the port number 2083, it uses cPanel. But, if the port is not working with that IP or showing any error, there must be an issue, or the server is not using cPanel. Proxy IP will redirect to another domain name/subdomain name. From that domain name/subdomain name, we have to find out the original IP. 

Another way to ensure the cPanel is to write the port number (2083) with any domain name hosted on that server, such as domainname.com:2083.

Step 03: Visiting cPanel License Verification Page:

After getting the server IP and ensuring that the server is running with cPanel, we must go to the cPanel license verification page.

The cPanel verification page URL is https://verify.cpanel.net/app/verify, or click here to go to that page directly.

There is an input field where we have to write the server IP.

Step 04: Identifying Bypassed cPanel:

If you find the license is expired, but the server is running with cPanel, it’s confirmed that the cPanel is bypassed, cracked or nulled.

Not Licensed

Sometimes, the system may show “Results: Not licensed”, But still, the server is running with cPanel, then you have to find out the original IP. Maybe the IP used to verify the license is a proxy IP or not!

NB. The article mentions the server IPs (111.222.333.444 & 111.222.333.441) for explanatory purposes only. They are not linked with the cPanel license.
