As we approach the new year, we want to take a moment to update you on an important development at ControlVM that directly impacts our valued customers.
We understand that pricing changes can be concerning, and we want to assure you that we have carefully considered the impact on our valued customers. We worked diligently to minimize the effects on your investment with ControlVM while ensuring that we can sustain the excellent service you’ve grown accustomed to.
cPanel Price Increase
cPanel announced a partner pricing adjustment on September 28, 2023, with a magnitude of approximately 9%-10%.
New pricing shall take effect for invoices generated on December 17, 2023, and thereafter. All existing and new licenses will automatically follow the new pricing, as per the table below:
|Tier Name||Account Type 1||Platform 2||Account Limit 3||Monthly Fee|
|Admin||Fixed||Cloud Only||up to 5 accounts||RM125|
|Pro||Fixed||Cloud Only||up to 30 accounts||RM175|
|Plus||Fixed||Cloud Only||up to 50 accounts||RM235|
|Premier 100||Fixed||Cloud or Metal||up to 100 accounts||RM285|
|Premier Bulk 4||Flexible||Cloud or Metal|| Initial 100 accounts
1. Account limit – maximum number of cPanel® account allowed under individual license tier.
2. Cloud – virtualised server (Xen, KVM, container, etc), Metal – Similar to dedicated server
3. Fixed – fixed tier that allow you to create cpanel account up to allocated limit.
4. Bulk Account – Billed at base price + additional accounts each month.
Elastic Cloud Hosting
For the same reason, all existing cPanel-based Elastic Cloud Hosting will be converted to new service plan as per below table:
|Service Plan||Account Type||Account Limit||New Monthly Fee|
|Additional Account||Flexible||Service Plan + additional account||Service plan + RM1.70/account/month|
Transition to New Service Plan
Along with this price adjustment we also decided to phase out the obsolete service plans and introduce our new and improved plans. We believe that this transition will offer you enhanced features and a better overall experience on our platform.
What You Need to Do:
No immediate action is required from your end. We will be contacting each customer individually to inform the change and automatically migrate your account to the new plan with new pricing.
Other Software & Services
In addition to the upcoming cPanel pricing change, existing customer should anticipate changes in pricing for existing services beginning of 2024 and new pricing shall take effect for invoices generated on December 17, 2023, and thereafter.
This adjustment is driven mainly by shifts in electricity costs, exchange rate and other vendor pricing. To provide personalized assistance, we will be contacting each customer individually to inform the specific impact of the pricing adjustment on their services.
