License types

To be able to use ispmanager control panel you need a license. We offer trial and commercial licenses. To order a license please get registered in your Client area using our site or via the billing system page.

Trial license

This license is for free evaluation of the panel. Almost all features are available, including installation of updates.

Ispmanager trial is valid for 14 days.

Trial license limitations

  • The control panel interface is valid only for 2 weeks. When this period is over, the web-interface will be blocked. However, server settings and websites will remain unchanged and keep on working.
A trial license can be activated if a trial or a commercial license has not yet been activated on the server. Otherwise errors will appear in the log file /usr/local/mgr5/var/licctl.log when trying to activate:
  • TRIAL_AFTER_COMMERCIAL — failed to activate the trial license after activating the commercial license;
  • TRIAL_ALREADY_USED — failed to activate the trial license after activating another trial license.

Commercial license

You can use this type of license for commercial projects. This type of license doesn't have any limitations. Users can order it for 1 month or 1 year and install all the updates it includes. 

As long as the license is valid, the panel is available without restrictions, including access to updates. This ensures the continued operation of your web hosting or other projects using ispmanager.

When the license expires, the user won't be able to access the web interface and use its functionality unless he renews the license. 

License plans

For commercial licenses, there are 3 plans to choose from with different feature sets:

  • ispmanager lite;
  • ispmanager pro;
  • ispmanager host.


As sites, the license considers all sites added as independent sites, including subdomains that were created manually. Subdomains created automatically using the Autosubdomains function are not taken into account by the license.
