How cPanel's Account Based Pricing Affects The Web Hosting Industry (And Resellers) Going Forward


Rippers and don’t care about hacks or anything. – Got my sites hacked multiple times and they dont respond at all. They removed email support and so you need to connect with them in chat for 2-3 hours and there is no guarantee. If your site is hacked due to their poor server, you need to commit for extra monthly subscriptions. Terrible Company!


In this video, I discuss cPanel’s recent announcement that they will be switching their licensing structure to account based; meaning companies will pay based on the number of cPanel accounts they create.

Much of the web hosting industry has been enraged by this announcement, therefore I break everything down as I see it, and provide details on how we plan on handling at NameHero.

    You can try Webmin Ryan. It's an open source project, FREE and is great even when cPanel have not yet announced this increase, I was checking on this for quite a while now. You may be able to offer it to your business and get a setup fee or whatever for maintaining or supporting it for the customers.

    Ryan, thanks bunches for the video! I didn't really have an hour to spare today, but I took the time to watch your whole video anyway. You set my fears to rest. I was about to gallop off in a bunch of directions making sure I was protected, but you calmed me down.
