Is it possible to install cPanel on localhost to test somethings out? I've just thought about this idea but not sure it can be done or not.

cPanel requires a public facing IP address to be installed. You can use the 15 day trial however. https://cpanel.com/trial/

This means we can not install cPanel on a localhost?

As far as I am aware you cannot. You should have a public facing IP address configured on the system, which the cPanel will relay to check and validate your license. Please check https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/ALD/Installation+Guide+-+System+Requirements for more details about the requirements to function cPanel. As suggested above, you can get free 15 days trial once installed [ you should make sure that your server IP address isn't used for trial before ]. So get a cheap VPS , install cPanel on it and do your testing; that my be the best option for you. Good Luck!

If you have a static IP and access to change the RDNS for your IP then no problem.

Agreed and even you can install it on a localhost then I think it will have more problems happen because cPanel is designed to install on a hosting, not a localhost.

As cPanel/WHM software is designed for commercial web hosting companies, there are currently no personal use licenses available for the software so there still no any option for localhost installation

I'd like to answer As cPanel/WHM software is designed for commercial web hosting companies, there are currently no personal use licenses available for the software.

However, if you are looking to gain experience with cPanel/WHM, one great way to do this is to acquire a hosting or reseller account with a web hosting provider that uses our software and set up a website or two.

Many hosting providers post offers to these forums. Additionally, you can find companies that offer reseller hosing by doing an internet search for cPanel Reseller Hosting.

HTH!
