This question already has an answer here:

I'm starting my sysadmin education and want to learn OS installations etc. The system I want to learn includes cPanel, but it seems there's no way to actually experiment with cPanel on a virtual environment and/or without paying for a license. Can someone give me advice how I can experiment with learning cPanel installation as part of an installation on virtual environment?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about software licensing and acquisition. – Falcon Momot Jul 1 '13 at 6:33

You can install cPanel and get a time limited trial license. This should give you all the access you need to learn without a huge cost. If that fails look for a VPS vendor that has a cPanel site license and can give you a low cost VPS to play with.

you also generally cant install cpanel without it running on a publically routable ip address, it generally wont install – anthonysomerset Jun 16 '11 at 6:45
@anthonysomerset, that's what I was wondering about – sameold Jun 16 '11 at 15:22
your best bet is getting hold of a cheap vps and installing the trial version there – anthonysomerset Jun 16 '11 at 15:54
