ServerFreak : cPanel Price Hike Guide

 

Hi Readers,

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.

They have announced this in their blog post recently and receive major blacklash from the web-hosting community all around the world!

 

Thus, to all our web hosting resellers your current reseller hosting subscription will have a limitation on cpanel accounts and price change.

ServerFreak cPanel Reseller Hosting

 

Options for the cPanel price increase?

A. Delete inactive cPanel accounts in your reseller hosting to fit quota provided.

 ( its time for you to do some housekeeping!)

B. Purchase another block of cPanel

c. Migrate all to DirectAdmin

 

A. MIGRATE ALL TO DIRECT ADMIN

 

DirectAdmin has quite a few features over cPanel in that they offer simple fixed pricing including support for unlimited accounts and domains .  Additionally, DirectAdmin makes the direct promise of “protection against price increases.” DirectAdmin Reseller Web control Demo : https://www.directadmin.com/demo.php

 

What you need to know about DirectAdmin.

 

1. INODE LIMIT

Just to confirm that our new DirectAdmin package will still remain like an existing package where we are able to create unlimited hosting account users / inodes. right?
>> Yes, you are correct. We still imposed soft-limit of 250K of inodes.

 

2.  MAIL SETTING

If your clients are using the standard hostnames in their email client i.e mail.domain.com, no changes required on their end. However, if they previously use the server’s hostname, they need to update the email server hostname in their email client’s settings tomail.domain.com‘.

 

3. WEBMAIL FEATURE

Worry not! Squirrelmail and Roundcube are available on Directadmin server

 

4. CMS CONTENT WEBSITE (softaculous in DA)

If the client wants to create CMS content website, how do they do it in the DirectAdmin?
>> Installatron or Softaculous will be available on the Directadmin server for one-click installation of CMS such as WordPress or Joomla.

 

5. DOMAIN POINTING

For those domains that are not bought from ServerFreak, you are required to update nameserver.

If you are using custom nameservers, such as ns1.mikids.com.my & ns2.mikids.com.my you can just update custom nameservers IP

 


B. Delete inactive cPanel accounts in your reseller hosting to fit quota provided.

If you to remain using cPanels, you can purchase another block of cPanel

Each block is 10 cpanel and cost RM15.00 per 10account/ monthly thats means RM180/yearly!

Lets say you currently have 91 extra cPanels you will need to purchase 100
