WordPress has been dominating the content management systems market for years now, and for a good reason too.
The open-source CMS is an extremely versatile tool that lets you build whatever you wish — blogs, online shops, business websites, portfolio pages. Sky is the limit with WordPress as you can find endless sources of themes and plugins that will help you change even the tiniest aspect of your design and functionality.
We are happy to announce the following new features in SPanel – the all-in-one cloud management platform allowing every website owner to choose between a shared hosting plan and a much more secure and reliable fully managed VPS with a control panel and daily backups while the cost remains the same.
The new version of SPanel that will be released later today comes with some cool new features such as WordPress cloning. It will allow you to clone any of your WordPress websites to a new address with one click.
See how easy it is to clone a WordPress website in SPanel.
After the cPanel price increase and the new account-based pricing model, the hosting industry has been dramatically changed. The most affected by this change are the resellers and web development companies that host their websites themselves. Since SPanel is being developed by ScalaHosting which clients can easily find the demand for branding in SPanel is huge. We have been working hard on introducing branding options so that any SPanel VPS owner can brand the control panel and name it as they wish. This feature is now available and you can change the logo, the login URL and also enter your brand to be displayed in the control panel instead of SPanel. Then you can market it as your own control panel, escape from cPanel, avoid the price increase and have a better and faster hosting solution for your websites.
If you have a reseller account and you consider migrating to SPanel but you are not sure if it will work out for you, feel free to contact us and we will give you a 30-day free trial to test it yourself and decide if you want us to migrate your websites to your own SPanel virtual server with a dedicated IP and resources.
The new version of SPanel is being released today delivering innovations that will change the hosting industry and the way websites run online. SPanel is a next generation hosting platform. It is an “all-in-one” solution allowing every website owner to host unlimited websites on their own cloud VPS with a control panel, SShield real-time protection, daily backups and snapshots, managed by experts 24/7/365 at an affordable price. The new SPanel features a user interface, admin interface and a powerful API allowing you to provide access to 3rd parties such as web developers or your own clients to manage their individual hosting accounts. The owner of the server gets access to an administrative interface to create new accounts and manage them, view the server status, load, disk, CPU and RAM utilization, restart services if necessary, suspend/unsuspend accounts and many others. In the new version SPanel supports all major web servers – Apache, Nginx, LiteSpeed Enterprise and OpenLiteSpeed with the last 2 being the fastest in the world for processing both dynamic and static content.
While the hosting industry expected the price increase, no one imagined that the model will get changed and cPanel users will not be able to create unlimited accounts on their cPanel servers without paying for it. That change affects the whole hosting industry because nowadays cPanel is the most used control panel. I’ll try to explain below how that change affects each of the hosting segments using cPanel.
Everyone knows that shared hosting, reseller hosting, vps hosting and dedicated hosting costs will increase. Everyone will be affected differently depending on the number of accounts they have on their servers. Every hosting company will have to pay $0.20 for each account over 100 on each cPanel server they run. The new prices get into effect on the 1st of September 2019. At http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1770316 there is a long discussion going where you can see many CEO’s of hosting companies mad with the change and looking for alternatives as all reputable hosting companies switched to virtual machines and the new pricing model will result in a huge increase which is in times higher than what providers used to pay.
For now ScalaHosting is not changing prices as cPanel may decide to revert the price increase to some extent due to the huge grievance from the whole hosting industry. Depending on their decision we are going to announce how our customers get affected by the change and what options do they have should they decide not to pay the cPanel price increase.
