Hi,
I hope I am posting in the right forum.
I am a small business switched from reseller account to a dedicated server at Hetzner, I have little but enough experience in SSH, to monitor and restart services and backup accounts.

I can't afford the $45 monthly cPanel license, which is higher than the dedicated server itself, I don't need cpanel but just for creating new account, I have no experience to do so from ssh (creating ftp, databases, ..etc). So, I only renew license when I need to add a new account, just this.

The issue is, when I needed cPanel, it was on day 24th of the month, I was glad it asked me only for few dollars till the end of the month, so I paid and did the tasks, the next day I cancelled the license so not to renew for $45 next month, and I was not happy that cPanel refunded me :(

Is there a way I can use cPanel once per month for $10 :)

That's an interesting perspective.

I only use cPanel two or three times an hour .............. perhaps I can get them to pay me for the privilege o_O

Sorry I would write more, but there are snowflakes on my screen !

Hello @ashrafpro,

Our Customer Service Department is the best point of contact for license-related questions. You can open a support ticket or email them directly ([email protected]) for clarification on your questions.

Thanks!
Here is the answer, not helpful at all
Thank you for contacting cPanel Customer Service regarding cPanel pricing.

Monthly licenses are automatically enrolled in auto-renewal and will auto-renew on the 1st day of every month at the full price of the license.

If you purchase a license after the 1st of the month, you will receive a prorated discount and only pay for the remaining days left in the month. This is why when you purchased a license on the 24th of the month, the cost was lower.

Our pricing is offered on monthly terms or yearly terms. We do not offer a license to be used only once per month. If cPanel is installed on your server, you will be required to have an active license on the server if you wish to use our software.

My apologies, but, your plan is just plain silly. If you can't afford a server with cPanel, you'll probably need to settle on a VPS with cPanel. If you need cPanel.

If you've got one of these;
offers Octacores servers with 32GB Ram and TBs of storage for less than $25
But can't make any money with it to be able to properly support your customers, I'd have to wonder why not. You could have 100's of customers on a server like that.

I'm in much the same boat as AshrafPro.
I'm also a small business user, I have 5 or 6 domains which are all mine and related to my business.

I switched to a dedicated server to be in charge of my own destiny, to avoid being blacklisted and to have my own bandwidth.
I'm not reselling any part of this server, or sharing with 100's of domains.

I've just seen my license double in price.

I know that you're in this to make money, arent we all, but I'm also struggling to justify the increase.
