The cPanel price increase… and what it means for you.

Peter .

This autumn, cPanel’s making a change to the way they structure their pricing. It’s designed to help them invest in their tech, developing better ways to host your websites. So, if you’re one of our cPanel regulars, what should you be expecting? Let’s take a closer look…

Here at Nimbus, we’ve been working with cPanel for a long time. Their hosting is one a range of options we offer, alongside Plesk and our home-grown hosting platform for creatives – STORM. We know it’s a really popular choice, so we wanted to walk you through the changes the team at cPanel is bringing in – and what they mean for you.

So what’s happening?

Up till now, cPanel has stuck to fixed pricing for its hosting licences. It’s an approach they’ve had for a long time, so if you’ve been using them for a while, you’re probably pretty comfortable with how it works. But they feel it’s time to switch things up.

If you’d like to hear the whole story, straight from them, they explain more in this blog, and this more recent one.

How are their prices changing?

They’ve created four new price bands, reflecting how many accounts each cPanel server is running. These are intended to better represent the range of cPanel users and, as we said, enable cPanel to invest more in its tech. The changes come into effect from 1 November 2019.

Please ensure that you contact us if you add or remove any accounts from your server so we can ensure you are in the correct bracket. You could potentially face a further increase in costs if you add more accounts to your server. 

Here is a full breakdown of all the brackets…

Admin ( 2-5 accounts ) – £2.50

Pro ( 5 – 30 accounts ) – £10

Plus ( 31 – 50 accounts ) – £20

Premier ( 51 – 100 accounts ) – £35

To keep offering their product, we’ll need to fall in line with this pricing structure and pass that small price increase on to you from November. You might have already had an email from us, letting you know which price bracket you fall into and what your new monthly cPanel price will be. 

If not, just give us a ring on 0203 005 9181 and we’ll talk you through it. We can even explain more about our other hosting options if you feel you’d like to make a change.
