Types of licenses

To be able to use an ISPsystem’s control panel you need a license. We offer free and commercial licenses. You can purchase a license in our Client area my.ispsystem.com

Free license


A free version is an ideal solution for getting started with a control panel without any time or functional limitations. ISPmanager trial is valid for 14 days.

How to activate a free license: 

  1. Install a panel on the server. Learn more in the Installation Guide
  2. Open the panel in the browser https://<server IP address>:1500/ispmgr
  3. In the form that will open select “Get a trial version”.
  4. Enter your login and password from the Client area. if you don’t have an account, specify a random login and password, the system will register the account automatically.

If there is no option “Get a trial version” on the activation form, access the server with the panel and download the file license again:

/usr/local/mgr5/sbin/licctl fetch ispmgr

When you see “Get a trial version” complete the steps above. 

Free 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.
  • You cannot add paid modules, such as CloudLinux.
  • ISPmanager trial can be activated on a certain IP address provided that it was not activated on that IP for the last 6 months. You can check it on ISPsystem website. If the trial version has been already activated contact the Support team ISPsystem for assistance.

Commercial license


You can use this type of license for commercial projects. This type of license doesn’t have any limitations. Users can obtain it for 1 month or 1 year and install all the updates it includes. When the license expires, the user won’t be able to access the web interface and use its functionality unless he renews the license. 

How to upgrade from trial to a commercial version


There are two ways to upgrade a trial license:

  1. In the control panel interface. 

Open the panel in the browser https://<IP-адрес сервера>:1500/mgrName and select “Purchase a license”.  Specify the period and other parameters, and follow the instructions.

        2. In the Client area.

Go to the website of the company where you purchased the license or to the Client area ISPsystem.  Renew the trial (to do so, click on “Change the tariff plan”) or order a new commercial license with the same IP address. All the settings that you made in the trial panel will remain after upgrading to the commercial version.  

3. If the control panel still informs you that you are using a trial version:

a. Delete the license file:

rm -rf /usr/local/mgr5/etc/mgrName.lic

        b. Download the file again

/usr/local/mgr5/sbin/licctl fetch mgrName
 Where

mgrName is the short name of a control panel:

  • ispmgr — ISPmanager;
  • billmgr — BILLmanager;
  • vmmgr — VMmanager KVM or Cloud;
  • vemgr — VMmanager OVZ;
  • dcimgr — DCImanager;
  • ipmgr — IPmanager;
  • dnsmgr — DNSmanager.

How to change a commercial version to trial 


  1. Log in to the ISPsystem Client area → “ISPsystem licenses”  and delete the trial license. 
  2. Delete the license file: 
rm -rf /usr/local/mgr5/etc/mgrName.lic
