    They are greedy In my opinion, there is no real competition... there is no real alternative to cPanel.

      Was only a matter of time before they did this after their partners WHMCS.

      I can see many users switching to Centos Web Panel as you can migrate cpanel accounts

          The cheapo hosts you see on feebay will just be using reseller, master reseller or alpha reseller plans, so will still remain

            It depends.

            You can host a good 1,000 mixed static/dynamic sites fine on an 8 CPU server, especially when using LiteSpeed, Imunify360, CloudLinux and the like. You can double that 1,000 to 2,000 if you have double the CPU/MEM. It should not be for cPanel to say how many cPanel accounts can or cannot be hosted on a server because the load/usage can vary so much depending on many different things, IMO.

            It would not be as bad if they still allowed unlimited license but just charged more for it if needed. It is easier for books, wise, etc.

              Our company has decided to boycott cpanel do massive price increase to cpanel users and software partners We feel these are very unfair trade practices We have partnered with other software makers to accommodate DTS-NET customers with even better solutions.

                The new prices are going to hit small hosts bad as most will have more than 5 accounts, so from $15 to $30 is a big increase and a lot with over 30 accounts from $15 to $45 +

                Admin
                Up to 5 Accounts
                $20 a month
                Ideal for a small to mid-level agencies and businesses, application developers, and web designers only needing a few accounts.

                Pro
                Up to 30 Accounts
                $30 a month
                Optimal for mid-level businesses and large agencies that are growing. Allows for scalability.

                Premier
                Up to 100 Accounts
                $45 a month
                Each Account above 100 Accounts $0.20 each

                Created for data centers, enterprise level businesses, and larger web hosts

                prices from https://cpanel.net/pricing/

                Just did a costing if i was still hosting.
                My cPanel licence was $14.95 for unlimited accounts.
                I had 230 accounts on the VPS
                So my $14.95 a month would suddenly go up to $45 for the first 100 accounts then $26 for the remaining 130 accounts
                So an increase of $56.05 a month just for the CP licence alone

                I would have most likely lost clients as i would have had to message them and inform them of at least a 50% increase in their fees

                    but as far as cPanel accounts go you only have 2 options DirectAdmin and Centos WebPanel as only these 2 will allow you to migrate cPanel accounts
