cPanel Announces Account Based Pricing

On the 27th of June 2019 cPanel announced a new account based pricing model which basically changed the way customers are billed and resulted in a price increase up to ~2000%. The official announcement is available at

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 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.
