cPanel price increase and how it will affect you?

First of all, the new pricing in this post only affects our customers using our VPS, Cloud and Dedicated Server services. We have already reached out to our Reseller hosting customers regarding the cPanel price increase. Our Cloud Hosting customers are not affected by this.

Price increase for cPanel licenses

Starting on 1 September, cPanel will only offer its licenses on an account basis.

Until recently, cPanel customers could purchase a VPS license for £16.58/month and Dedicated license for £37.31/month directly from cPanel store, with which they could have an unlimited number of accounts on cPanel.

IMPORTANT: cPanel has changed the way they name their plans now. VPS is now Cloud and Dedicated is now Metal.

HostXNow used to include cPanel for free with all HostXNow Managed VPS, Cloud Servers and Dedicated Servers, but due to the massive price increase from cPanel, HostXNow has had to update the offering. Instead, we will include the cPanel Solo Cloud/Metal license at no extra cost for all of our Managed VPS, Cloud Server and Dedicated Server services. The cPanel Solo license allows you to host 1 (one) cPanel account.

From now on, prices will be based on the number of accounts.

You can check cPanel’s new pricing below:


LicenseNo. of accountsPrice / month
cPanel Solo Cloud(up to 1 Accounts)£ 12.32
cPanel Admin Cloud(up to 5 Accounts)£ 16.60
cPanel Pro Cloud(up to 30 Accounts)£ 24.90
cPanel Premier Cloud(up to 100 Accounts)£ 37.35
cPanel Premier Metal(up to 100 Accounts)£ 37.35
cPanel Premier Cloud & Metal(Bulk Accounts over 100)£ 0.17

We will automatically start charging you the additional license fee starting from 1 September 2019 going by the pricing information above. For this reason, we advise you to delete any cPanel accounts that are no longer in use before 1 September. If you are willing to delete enough of them, you will pay a lower price level.
