Sometime back in 2018, Oakley Capital had acquired cPanel, the industry-leader when it comes to web hosting control panels. This move effectively brought both cPanel and Plesk under the same umbrella, as Oakley Capital also happens to be the parent company behind Plesk.
Recently, Oakley Capital decided to revise the cPanel/WHM pricing structure, thereby raising the prices fairly steeply in a short span of time. This was, by and large, expected as acquisitions almost always lead to a revision in pricing structure. However, such steep and monumental rise in pricing has led many in the web hosting world considering whether or not to continue with cPanel in the long run.
So, what lies next for cPanel? Will web hosting providers be shying away from it anytime soon, owing to the new pricing tariff? Let us explore and analyze the situation in greater detail.
