Dear All Clients

On June 27th, 2019, cPanel, one of the most widely used hosting control panels in the world, announced a price hike bombshell without warning that has both clients and partners upset.

Originally, cPanel’s pricing structure revolved around VPS or Dedicated licenses with unlimited cPanel accounts. The choices were:

  • cPanel Solo – $15 a month (1 account)
  • cPanel VPS – $20 a month (unlimited accounts)
  • cPanel Dedicated – $45 a month (unlimited accounts)

Now, the pricing has been changed to the following:

  • cPanel Solo – $15 a month (1 account)
  • cPanel Admin – $20 a month (up to 5 accounts)
  • cPanel Pro – $30 a month (up to 30 accounts)
  • cPanel Premier – $45 a month (up to 100 accounts, +$0.20 per account over 100)

All of the above refers to Cloud (formerly VPS), except for the Premier tier, which can be used for Cloud and Metal (formerly Dedicated). For more clarity, here is a screenshot from cPanel’s new licensing guide:

You can read the finer details in their press release, which also includes partner pricing and fixed partner pricing.

While prices may seem similar, the account limit is what will really affect higher density clients throughout the hosting and data center industry.

cPanel has received intense backlash for this decision. Their reasoning for the price raise is that hardware is better than when they released their prices 20 years ago. Last year, cPanel was acquired by Oakley Capital, a private equity that also owns Plesk and SolusVM.
