cPanel Alternatives 2021 | After cPanel® price increase

cPanel Alternatives 2021: cPanel is the most used control panel in the Web Hosting industry for decades now. On 27th June 2019, cPanel decided to release its updated Pricing structures which is going to cost more than X10 for those who are providing cheap web hosting on the same server.

Update: cPanel again increased revised pricing structure and hiked by 25%, will be effective from 1st Jan 2021. We shifted all our servers to Direct Admin and InterWorx.

cPanel Old Vs New Pricing:

The previous license cost was pretty decent for medium and large scale business owners. $20 for VPS and $45 for Bare Metal servers offering unlimited cPanel accounts.

But unfortunately, this cPanel updated pricing is not applicable for any new licenses. You will need to pay basis license cost + additional $0.20/account every month.

In 2021 you will have to pay $2 Extra for standard license cost and $0.30 per accounts

If you have an active license with them, then you will have 60 days to make your decision to either use them or switch to other options available in the market.

Impact on Small Web Hosts

Undoubtedly, for those who are part-timers and having few systems on some VPS and those purchasing from some other company will feel the pinch. But what about those who are throwing hundreds and thousands of accounts on the same server? They won’t even bat an eye at this.

Those who operate at medium scale will have panic over the next few months. They may try to integrate and migrate customers over to cheaper or free offerings. At the same time, they may also attempt to update their billing and contact impacted customers. But once the dust settles, I doubt they will really lose much.

I can see the billing aspect being a pain in the ass! It will require companies to change their offers in the next few months. cPanel will probably be dropped from a lot of subscriptions. It will instead appear as an add-on that is billed on usage just like bandwidth usage.

Changes in GoogieHost

Like the other web hosting companies, we will also be affected like the others. Not even a single customer wants to pay anything extra. Yesterday, the team estimated the license cost which is about $17,000 per month!

No doubt we do not have any plans to keep using cPanel. We are in search to find other alternatives. Our system admins already in preparation to shift all the accounts new panel before September 2019 with almost all features.

  5. Hi Rajesh, I am one of your free plan customer. When I login to my services, there’s a button Login to DirectAdmin, when I click, its not working, It timedout. Secondly, I need to ask that what would be my login credentials for DirectAdmin? is it the same as cpanel? I am just asking for it because I just came to know about this shift.

    • Yes, all the credentials will be the same as cPanel, we still doing minor changes on a regular basis because migrating thousands of accounts to a completely different platform is not an easy task for us.
