    1. Just cancel your existing license and order the solo license
    2. Then execute this command using root to update license

    /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

    Note: cPanel will not cancel the existing license instantly (After end of the month)

    Also: The solo license VPS only so it may not work with dedicated server

    Edited: And yes you will have all WHM features for single hosting account

    You are updating only the license. Not upgrading the software itself so I don't think it will change anything.

    Anyway, Directadmin is better choice for your single account, it will save lots of money

  • Direct admin rocks

  • Does DirectAdmin count the number of accounts, or number of domains? Seems like the cPanel Solo account is fine with one account with multiple domains, will that work with DA as well?
    Thanks.

    No, directadmin is limited by domain. you cannot have 100 domain on single account. BUTTTTT. Many provider offer directadmin for free. Just search directadmin on Offer Section and pick your choice.

    The DirectAdmin personal licence is one account with 10 domains and $24/y compared to cPanel Solo at $180. At that price you can get the Lite licence with 10 accounts and 50 domains.

    However many providers offer the Standard licence for free which is unlimited accounts and domains.

    I still do not know what does personal directadmin license do! I do not understand what it means to have 1 account and 10 domains. Are these 10 domains act the same way cpanel addon domains do? If yes I am not interested because I have heard cpanel addon domains are run in a way that if one domain is hacked all others will have security issues. Is it the same way? Do you have any screenshot?

  • Why would you pay $15/Month for a single hosting account? :(

    The 1 account means one log in, a user if you like. The 10 domains is example.com, example2.com, etc up to permitted 10. In effect the DA personal licence operates in the same way as cPanel Solo.

    Yes, you are correct in that all the domains sit under the one user, the same as add on domains. If you want separate accounts you will need the Lite or Standard licence which allows you Zoo create multiple separate user accounts with individual log in.

    Personally, I would pick you a VPS from BuyVM, Inception Hosting or others and get a full unrestricted DA licence for free.
