How Much Will You Pay For cPanel Licenses?

New Pricing for cPanel Licenses

Pricing for hosting providers and consumers that use cPanel, and WebHost Manager (WHM), changed in a significant way after cPanel introduced a new licensing structure. How do new cPanel licenses affect you?

In this article, you will get all the information you need to know about the new cPanel pricing structure and how it affects your hosting plan.

cPanel Has Changed Its Pricing Structure

cPanel licenses are now usage-based. This change was made by cPanel, and it affects every host that runs cPanel on its servers–not limited to InMotion Hosting. Making an effort to help as much as possible, InMotion Hosting has been carefully considering how this price change affects you, the user, most fairly.

The pricing change will most affect VPS, Dedicated, and Reseller hosting products running cPanel.

cPanel Prices For Reseller Hosting

Customers with Reseller Hosting plans will not be charged an additional fee based on the Reseller Hosting plan’s cPanel usage. However, each type of Reseller Hosting plan has a maximum number of cPanel accounts available.

Resellers will no longer be able to host unlimited cPanel accounts, and will instead have the following limits:

Reseller PlansNumber of Child Accounts
R-1000SUp to 25 Accounts
R-2000SUp to 50 Accounts
R-3000SUp to 80 Accounts
R-4000SUp to 100 Accounts
cPanel License Structure For Reseller Hosting

Resellers are limited to 100 accounts. Once you hit this limit, you must upgrade to a cPanel VPS, a Dedicated Server, or purchase an additional Reseller Hosting plan to host additional cPanel accounts.

InMotion Shared Hosting plans (including Business Class and Classic WordPress Hosting) will not incur a cost increase.

What can you do today to make this change easier?

Experienced system administrators may see this as the perfect time to migrate to bare metal Cloud Servers without cPanel and install a lightweight replacement such as Webmin or Vesta Control Panel.
