Checks the status of a cPanel license
Uses the cPanel website to check the status of a license for a given host or IP. The address of the license validation page can be set in the script if it were to ever change as can the regex expression used to extract the status of the license from the returned page.

My cPanel is under 3 year license but this script is showing "License Inactive" message...!! :(

The URL mentioned inside this script seems proper as below,
