cPanel, one of the most famous Web Hosting Control Panel software has announced an increase in their prices from September 1st, 2019. More about this you can learn in the letter from cPanel’s CEO, Nick Konston.
Overall, price increase news from cPanel was shocking for everybody in the industry. Especially for clients, as at the end of the day, any kind of hosting service powered by cPanel control panel will be increased. For all cPanel partners, including AltusHost as well, this price increase was somehow expected. As it’s been a while since cPanel did any increase in their fees, and they made huge improvements in their software. Altho we think the main reason for the increase is the most recent Investment in cPanel from Oakley Capital.
Is this good or bad, how it will reflect on the future of cPanel and Hosting industry, we are not going to elaborate or predict in this article. Let’s just say: “time will show”. AltusHost was always dedicated to providing the most flexible licensing fees for most popular software, it will remain like that with new cPanel packages and fees as well. So let’s dig into facts and numbers.
The new name of License Plans
cPanel for VPS Hosting is now named as “Cloud“. cPanel for Dedicated Server is now named “Metal“. Besides the new name, each Cloud and Metal license will now have multiple tiers who is based on “account level” fees.

cPanel Pro Cloud, up to 30 Accounts
cPanel Plus Cloud, up to 50 Accounts

More than 100 Accounts? cPanel has prepared price per each additional account as “flexible” rate or “fixed” upgrade of accounts to some numbers. AltusHost will provide fixed rates in slots of 50 accounts. In regular offer we will have up to 500 Accounts, in case you need more accounts, it will be arranged additionally.

Will your Hosting price be increased?
In general, we will do our best to avoid the increase in fees for our clients. However, for some services, we will be forced to increase the fee in order to cover our license costs. Business Web Hosting fees won’t be increased due to this change in cPanel pricing. However, for some VPS Hosting and Dedicated Server clients who are using cPanel, we will have to increase the subscription fee from the next billing cycle, depending on the number of their cPanel accounts. Those clients will be informed via email in the upcoming period.
