WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

Licenses Pricing

H-Sphere is licensed at US $4.50 per account ONE TIME FEE and can be purchased in packs of 25 accounts.

Ordering Licenses

To order a new H-Sphere license or to upgrade existing license with more accounts:

  1. Get registered at and log into your account.
  2. Click the Upgrade license menu and in the License amount you want to buy field enter the amount of licenses you want to buy in addition to those you already have.

H-Sphere is available for 30 days free trial. To order a trial license, please contact: You'll be eligible for customer support for the trial period.

License Accounts Policy

H-Sphere 3.0 Patch 2 + runs accounts policy: when the number of created accounts exceeds the number of accounts allowed by license and the difference they make is:

Less than 10%   - > Admin can still manage H-Sphere and existing accounts. However all new accounts will be put to moderate section and won't be a subject to moderation.
Over 10%   - > Admin is directed to the License page only which blocks work with CP.

If you upgrade H-Sphere from 2.5 and older version, or if for any other reason the number of accounts exceeds the licensed amount by 10%, it's recommended to upgrade your license first. To do this, go to Ordering Licenses.

Installing Licenses

In order to configure your H-Sphere CP, you should first enter License Certificate which is given to you upon purchase. Otherwise, you won't be able to operate H-Sphere.

Once you ordered, paid for and installed H-Sphere, you need to install License Certificate:

LicenseExtractor Tool

If you need to upgrade your license, increase the number of H-Sphere accounts, you can do it only with access to CP server console.
