Reasons why a VPS license appears with Blocked status and how to fix it

Updated over a week ago

Some control panel license providers, such as cPanel or Webuzo, only allow having one active license per IP address. If your VPS already has a license with one of these providers and you purchase another one at Hostinger, the activation will fail, and your license will show a Blocked status on hPanel:

How to Check if Your VPS IP Is Currently Licensed

You can check directly with the control panel providers whether the IP of your VPS already has an active license:

Once on the provider page, enter your VPS IP address and click on Verify License.

How to Fix a Blocked License

If you have confirmed that your IP is already licensed, you have two options before activating the new license in hPanel:

  • Wait for the expiration of the license purchased with another provider. That is, do not renew or prolong it

  • Fully cancel your license with another provider

Once the older license is inactive, the blocked on the new one will be lifted, and you will be able to activate it 😊
