A Club Penguin Private Server (commonly abbreviated and known as a CPPS) is an online multiplayer game that is not part of Club Penguin, but it uses .swf files from Club Penguin, a database, and a server emulator in order to create an environment similar to Club Penguin. Many now use these environments in order to play the original Club Penguin game after Disney officially shut the genuine version down. This was to make way for the new Club Penguin game/experience, Club Penguin Island.
- The first Club Penguin Private Server was authored by Alex (iRath96/iCrack) who created iCPv1, the first ever Club Penguin Private Server. It was accessible through a modified version of the Penguin Storm trainer. After receiving pressure from Disney to close down due to copyright issues, the developers of the CPPS released their server scripts to the public, allowing many to create their own servers.
- In April 2014, CPPS.me became the first CPPS to have one million users registered. And in 2017 it became the first cpps to have 2 million users registered.

Since private servers essentially copy copyrighted materials by Disney, there has been much controversy as to whether or not creating and hosting them is legal. Disney and Club Penguin often pursue CPPSes and attempt to have them taken down with DMCA notices. Some CPPSes owners claim to it not being copyrighted because most of the interface and files they use are custom-made.
