cPanel/WHM on Amazon EC2 – Now a more viable option.
As most of you reading this already know, Amazon’s AWS platform is built behind the NAT infrastructure. NAT (Network Address Translation) is the translation of an IP address used within one network to a different IP address known within another network. For this reason assigning a public address to an EC2 server located inside a private network. AWS EC2 instances have a single IP address range.
These limitations make cPanel for AWS more laborious, requiring a lot of changes and ending up with known/unresolved issues. Yes, there are users who have successfully installed and used cPanel on EC2, but for the most part do so at their own risk. Meaning there is no option to contact the support department of cPanel for support or bug fixes if there is a problem.
Good news now! cPanel 11.39 with cPanel Posted That they were able to seamlessly move “30+ instances from a dedicated environment to AWS” without any missteps.
Other than this . from 11.39 Declaration,
“Added support for using cPanel and WHM in a 1:1 NAT environment”
