cPanel Price Update Announcement
We have been working closely with cPanel® leading up to the licensing announcement. Detailed below are some of the key changes that you need to be aware of:
Rebranding VPS and Dedicated License Types
cPanel® is evolving their packaging names to coincide with industry terms. VPS is now Cloud and Dedicated is now Metal. The package name changes go into effect immediately.
Per Account Licensing Model
As announced in late June, cPanel® is adjusting its licensing model to be on a per-account basis. The new model allows you to purchase blocks of accounts (100, 125, 150, etc.). For clarity, the definition of an account is an account listed in cPanel® & WHM, not a domain name. This licensing structure change goes into effect in September 2019.
Fixed Account Licensing Model
If you prefer fixed price packages, where there is a hard account limit per licensing plan, we have created several fixed account packages:\
cPanel® Plan Name Platform Account Limit Total
cPanel® Pro Fixed VPS Only Up to 30 $50
Premier Fixed 100 Cloud & Metal Up to 100 $75
Premier Fixed 125 Cloud & Metal Up to 125 $85
Premier Fixed 150 Cloud & Metal Up to 150 $95
Premier Fixed 175 Cloud & Metal Up to 175 $105
Premier Fixed 200 Cloud & Metal Up to 200 $115
Premier Fixed 225 Cloud & Metal Up to 225 $125
Premier Fixed 250 Cloud & Metal Up to 250 $135
Premier Fixed 300 Cloud & Metal Up to 300 $155
Premier Fixed 350 Cloud & Metal Up to 350 $175
Premier Fixed 400 Cloud & Metal Up to 400 $195
Premier Fixed 450 Cloud & Metal Up to 450 $215
Premier Fixed 500 Cloud & Metal Up to 500 $235
* Plans with accounts above 500 will be priced in 50 account increments at an additional 20$.
Fixed Account Licensing Upgrades
When a licensed server reaches the account limit of any fixed plan, an upgrade is required in order to add more accounts to that server. Upgrading between two fixed plans will require payment of the difference in price between the two fixed plans. For example, upgrading from cPanel® Pro Fixed ($50/month) to cPanel® Premier Fixed 100 ($75/month) will cost $25 to upgrade. Please note we are unable to prorate upgrades that occur in the middle of your monthly billing cycle.
What happens if the maximum number of users is exceeded on a cPanel license? How can a cPanel® license be upgraded or downgraded?
Once a cPanel® license meets the allotted maximum number of users, it must be upgraded to the next tier in order to add more cPanel® accounts. If additional accounts are restored to a server, exceeding the limit, cPanel® and WHM will not be accessible until the license is on the correct tier for the number of users.
cPanel® License Upgrades and Downgrades will be available from the client area, we will provide instructions here once the new pricing takes effect in September.
Do suspended accounts count towards the user count?
Yes, All active and Suspended cPanel® accounts will count towards the total number of accounts on a cPanel® license.
