As new emerging technologies pop up regularly globally, services offered and the way companies conduct business and their processes change. cPanel, the company who has the lion’s share for the popular website hosting easy to use control panel which you know WhoGoHost uses, recently made a shocking announcement as regards cPanel licensing price which moved the entire web hosting industry globally.
How the cPanel Price Hike Affects You
Until now, web hosting providers like us buy Licenses for CPanel per server and this allowed us to have unlimited cPanel accounts on one (1) server. However, cPanel has now changed its pricing model for licensing cPanel from a “per Server” basis to a “per Hosting Account” basis and this has caused our cPanel Licensing cost to drastically increase by 536%.
