    Only in a way that I will spend more time on consulting my friends, but else doesn't really affect me. I swapped to custom Panel years ago when it wasn't even a thing. Back then my choice was impacted by curiosity and a little better deal I got, but I was never expecting that curveball from cPanle...

    Won't affect me at all since I am not one of their customers and never will be.

    Since 1997 DTS-NET has sold cpanel licenses to our customers given recent changes to cpanel's pricing structure we do not agree with these business practices and does not support cpanel aggressive strategy and side with hosting industry and colleagues and fellow service providers to boycott cpanel and price increase and this way it pressure cpanel to go back to the original cpanel business practices cpanel seems to forget very companies that built massive market share and we could very easily as an industry go back another software company or very easily create our own software we know other providers like us follow suit and boycott cpanel cpanel better change your ways before they lose their entire market very unfair to customers people that have built apps for cpanel and customers that use cpanel and cpanel needs to remember when they where just a startup days with SingularWind Technologies

    This looks like total nonsense to me, just a bunch of random words strung together. Not a single punctuation mark which proves this is nothing more than spam.

    Webuzo, Webmin, Interworx, ISPConfig, VestaCP, CentOS Web Panel, Froxlor, DirectAdmin will be good options and as more money goes in to them away from cpanel!!!!

    I think cPanel have made a bad choice and part of me thinks they are going to recall the change. I mean $20 did get you unlimited accounts and now it gets you 5 and that was going direct. I got it for like $13 at buycpanel. Defiantly just as good control panels for a cheaper price out there

    Many hosts have already started switching to Directadmin. There was an intense pressure from the hosting community and most of the people thought cPanel would revoke their decision to increase the price however looks like they did not give a damn and wanted to move on with the price hike hence last choice remain for users is to search for the new panel such as directadmin which seems to be competent enough to replace the cpanel.

    Some web hosting providers, those that oversell and host 500, 600... 1000 shared accounts on one server (their names are well known) will probably stop using cPanel or will negotiate any custom terms. Many middle-sized web hosting provider will see 30% - 100% increase in their bills fro cPanel licenses. some of them will try to insure the cost of licensing to their customers. We will keep our cPanel licenses, but we will adapt to their policy, which means we will stop driving them business and will reduce our spendings.

    CentOS Web panel and others will be picking up.

    I think the end result for CPanel will be that they have alot less active users/licenses, but with the same revenue or a bit higher, which works for them as that means less support staff and overhead required. Bad PR but good bottom line result.
