This info is only for VPS/SERVER clients with WHM/CPANEL included.


At the end of June, cPanel announced a major change to their license pricing structure to an account-based licensing. Unfortunately this means the price of OwnCubeVPS and Dedicated Server cPanel/WHM license will be adjusted from 1 January 2020. 


What’s changing?

Currently, cPanel is licensed per server and allow you to host unlimited accounts. With the new licensing introduced by cPanel, that is no longer the case. You will now have to purchase a license based on the number of accounts you have created, or plan to create on your server.

This licensing structure change goes into effect to you in 1 January 2020.


How does this impact me?

The new price varies depending on how many cPanel accounts you have hosted on your VPS or Dedicated Server with cPanel/WHM. If you are on any of our Cloud Admin subscription, this price changes will not affect you.


New cPanel Pricing:

cPanel is evolving their packaging names to coincide with industry terms. VPS is now Cloud and Dedicated Server is now categorised as Metal.


Our included WHM license for VPS users will stay, but only the default license that allows 1 Cpanel accounts per server, that also fit one service with us you ordered.
This limit is the new WHM setting for the default licenses.


They offer upgrades for up to 30 Cpanel accounts and up to 100 cpanel accounts. We are not able to include any license upgrades for free as we already offer the default WHM/cpanel license for free to you.

So if you get any error related to this or you use more than the default cpanel account amount, please upgrade your license at WHM, any reseller or with us.


The prices for upgrades are:
up to 5 cpanel accounts: 5€ per month or 60€ per year
up to 30 cpanel accounts: 10€ per month or 120€ per year
up to 100 cpanel accounts: 25€ per month or 300€ per year

We are sorry about this change, but this is something that WHM/CPANEL changed from there end to limit cpanel accounts.
