cPanel has shaken the web hosting community with its recent price rise announcement. They have changed its pricing model from a per server pricing to a per account model.
So if you're a cPanel partner and were paying $11 per cPanel license for each server and running 1,000 websites,you willl now have to pay $122. Thatâ€™s approximately 1000% price rise!
