IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and colocation services provider, QuadraNet, has introduced cPanel licensing tiers with a new flat rate structure to simplify the “complicated” structure that was imposed by cPanel in their new licensing tier this summer.
The new cPanel pricing and licensing structure announced on Thursday 27 Jun 2019 has caused a great deal of emotions among web hosting companies. More or less out of the blue, cPanel decided to no longer offer unlimited accounts for their web hosting control panel. Instead they introduced a multi-tier licensing structure.
Prior to June 2019, cPanel offered flat monthly rates for its licensing types while allowing unlimited accounts to be created. According to hosting provider QuadraNet, the new account-based licensing tier introduced by cPanel has, in some cases, increased the cost for individuals by as much as ten times.
cPanel arguments that when the company defined its original pricing structure, some twenty plus years ago, servers were not as powerful as they are today. Now, web hosting providers can run hundreds of websites on a single processor system. With cPanel’sprice increase, the company would align itself with evolving technology.
QuadraNet now comes up with this new flat rate structure for their cPanel licensing offerings.

“Over the last months we have been working with customers to obtain feedback in an effort to structure our cPanel licensing in a way that benefits our customers and also allows for flexible options and seamless transitions into new tiers,” stated QuadraNet on its website. “The new flat rate structure allows you to pick a tier that fits your needs the best so you will know what your cost is without having to be concerned about fluctuating prices.”
QuadraNet’s new licensing tiers will go into effect on December 1st, 2019 across all existing license holders. For new orders, licensing tiers are already available this month, starting November 1st, 2019.
