Ah but seriously, if you have 100,000 accounts, you SHOULD be paying more than the $45!!! Just because you want unlimited, doesn't REALLY mean you need it.
Most hosting companies would be challenged to hit the 1,000 mark - and those that hit 2,500 should be able to afford the $100/month.
We were a certified cPanel NOC for a number of years, and while we had unlimited licenses back then, it isn't a feasible model as a business. I have no issue with them raising prices to reasonable costs, and I consider these costs as reasonable.
Unfortunately you're asking someone who operated 400+ servers and paid a monthly bill for the rent of those servers, software, backup fees, employees, taxes etc... So I come at this from a business side of things. Not only do I have to pay the providers that I get things from, but I also have to have a reasonable markup to cover other expenses, and make a profit on top of that.
True, but even if a host offers $1 mth plans and had 100,000 accounts it is still $100,000 a mth, so paying $1000 for client management software is still reasonable as I would hate to have to manually manage 100,000 accountsI know very few hosting companies that have 100,000 accounts - for that matter, I know very few that have more than 10,000 REAL accounts. Again, Free, $1/year or $1/month hosting I do not consider to be real. Yes, they exist, but the "business" model can't be sustained.
so you would rather see them still charge $45 a mth, so in a few month's time they have close down WHMCS.Anyone who believes they are acceptable raising a bill $1250 more a month needs a doctor, regardless of value, regardless of how much per customer it is morally wrong and completely unacceptable.
About bills, yes we now have cPanel PER account, WHMCS per account meaning an additional cost of 20-30 cents a customer, with big numbers that adds up extremely fast to extremely large figures taking a huge cut from Businesses having to pay all those bills.
but this thread is actually about cPanel price increase and NOT WHMCS price increase.
I was actually curious. I wasn't poking the bear. I wasn't downplaying anything.You clearly got involved in the WHMCS conversation, don't sweat I have requested my account be deleted won't be bothering you anymore old chap.
Leave everyone to post nothing but spam adverts instead.
Leaves me to wonder why only a handful actually post on this forum any meaningful content, if they are going to get bashed for doing so it probably explains it all.
