They Said in announced the new pricing and licensing structure for Partners, Distributors, and their cPanel Store customers, and on their blog, they mentioned that their pricing and licensing will now be standardized for all of their customers and be billed monthly, and include multiple Tiers.
Announcement: The hosting industry has changed a lot in the last 20 years, and has long out-grown the licensing and pricing structure that we have used at cPanel. Effective immediately, cPanel’s license structure and the way we price our products is changing.
Why Change? Our goal is to be as transparent as possible with our prices. We want to simplify the process of adding new servers and make it easier to become a cPanel customer. Additionally, it is important for us to provide licenses that target smaller instances, opening up a new revenue opportunity for our customers. Historically, cPanel has based its services and pricing around a VPS or Dedicated license with unlimited cPanel Accounts. When cPanel defined its original pricing structure, some twenty plus years ago, servers were not as powerful as they are today. Thanks to constant innovation in the hardware sector and optimization in our software, we can now run hundreds of websites on a single processor system. With this change, we align ourselves with this growing technology. As the company has evolved, cPanel has added more development resources, more structure, and more brain power that, in turn, makes it possible to take on an increasing number of development projects. Adjusting our prices will ensure that we can continue to invest in product development, thrive in an increasingly hostile security landscape, grow our customer ecosystem, and remain a leader in hosting automation

AlwaysSkint Said: This is not good for low-end, low-cost hosting providers such as me, unless per cPanel Accounts are extremely cheap. Think in the order of 12 customers per server. I saw the 20c starting price but read that was for bulk scale Accounts of 200+? Did anyone else notice the published date at the bottom of the announcement and how few had read it, until this thread?
georgedatacenter: said https://cpanel.net/wp-content/themes/cPbase/assets/downloads/cP_Store_Licensing_Guide.pdf either hosting prices are increased or you switch to directadmin
Thiago Sabaia Said: These prices are horrible. It will break with the hosting market, and you will be the most harmed. Several users of cPanel will not be able to pay a license with this absurd price and will use competing panels. Not to mention that this will open space for a new competitor, because they will take advantage of your price change to launch a functional and fair price panel, attracting customers who are frustrated with cPanel. Rethink this price table, it will be better for you and for us.
Shahid Malla : i think cPanel don't know the other cost server security, manpower, services charges, marketing investment, Discount Cost, Support Cost, They think only cPanel is Required to sell hosting, what happen where a service provider get a cPanel License in 20$ for 5 Clients and the Server Prices is 30$, Marketing 25$, Support Team investment 40$, auto install script 15$, Security plugin 6$ it's around 130$ per month cost for 5 cpanel accounts then how much price he will take from clients 23$ per month hosting? dear cpanel your 20-year experience is totally stupid.
