A fifth consecutive year of cPanel price rises
WebPros, the owners of cPanel, have stuck to their annual routine of hiking prices. Sorry.
For a fifth consecutive year, we have been pushed into raising cPanel prices from 1 January. We never like making decisions like this, but our own costs have been increased up by the owners of cPanel, a company called WebPros.
Regular readers of this blog may recall earlier rounds of this news from last year, or the year before, or even the original announcement from way back in 2019. It never gets easier, even as the story stays the same.
This year, CloudLinux is also affected.
New cPanel prices from 1 January 2024
The new cPanel Plus Cloud tier adds a step between 30 accounts (Pro) and 100 (Premier).
|Product||Accounts||Old price||New price (NZD)|
|cPanel Admin Cloud||Up to 5||$60||$65|
|cPanel Pro Cloud||Up to 30||$85||$95|
|cPanel Plus Cloud (new)||Up to 50||n/a||$130|
|cPanel Premier Cloud||Up to 100||$155||$170|
|Extra sites||After first 100||90c||$1|
CloudLinux isn't a WebPros product, but they supply us with the CloudLinux licenses that we bundle with cPanel.

You might have other options
Since cPanel is basically the industry standard, WebPros have a lot of pricing power to play with. They know that it's not always an easy platform to replace. But there might still be ways for you cut back your expenses.
Your options depend on how your agency or business operates. The number of sites you operate and the way you collaborate with clients, for example, can change what we'd recommend. So it's best to get in touch with us and talk in person.
