BuycPanel Acquired by cPanel

HostEONSHostEONS Member, Provider

Just got this mail:

I am writing to you today with some important and exciting news about BuycPanel. After careful consideration by our management team, we have accepted an offer to be acquired by cPanel, the industry-leading hosting automation platform. All of us at BuycPanel are excited about this opportunity, especially the extra services, products, and opportunity this makes available to our customers.

As we evaluated our options to continue to grow our company, we determined the best path forward was to join an organization that is customer-centric, has more resources to propel us forward and that will continue to execute on our vision of great service and customer dedication.

We have worked very closely with cPanel for over a decade, and we could not have found a better partner to continue our mission. The cPanel team has been very gracious as we discussed our options and we are looking forward to what the future holds for BuycPanel.

Our commitment to customers is stronger than ever. There is no action required from you at this time. Please continue to use our customer portal for new orders, payments and to contact members of our team. You can still expect 24/7/365 support, and friendly welcoming staff to be available when you need us.

As we work through our integration with cPanel, we will provide updates to you. We deeply value the trust that you have put in BuycPanel over the years and we thank you for your continued support and business.

Sincerely,

The BuycPanel Team
http://www.BuycPanel.com

    Yes we may try other panels also, but DA is our preference right now as already got some lifetime DA licenses :)

  • So basically cpanel destroyed their business model without notice so they could low ball buy in/out all their customers.

    pretty smart.

    That means no more DISCOUNTS. Next is CloudLinux

  • How long until price changes?

    CloudLinux BuycPanel $11.95/month vs cPanel Direct $16/month

  • As I said, they will flip flop. Now cPanel it-self should begin stagnate as all generated income will not be re-invested into product it-self, but rather drained to investors and their bottomless pockets.

    cPanel buys LET to force removal of the "Shared/Reseller offers facilitated by cPanel - no longer allowed" rule.

    They need to become profitable again. :trollface:

    Not only but JetBackup too as the cPanel developers completely messed up the original backup option, as pointless backup database files continues corrupted.

    But JetBackup is now creating a version for DirectAdmin, should we take bets on either they haven't sold JetBackup (Unlikely) or the version for DirectAdmin gets canned.

    There's no guarantee that DirectAdmin will keep the same pricing forever, but I can say that I trust them more given that they do have a small presence on LET (unlike cPanel), fulfill feature requests from the community (including adapting the interface for previous cPanel users), etc.

    But I'm fairly certain that any future price increases will at the very least be reasonable (i.e not doubling/tripling/etc pricing in one shot). And besides, if DirectAdmin pulls such a stunt off, what will incentivize users to remain on DA?

    Don’t agree with this. They are gaining market share, small or large doesn’t matter, they are gaining.

    As @FlamesRunner said they maintain a presence here, I don’t remember cPanel having a presence anywhere let alone a forum dedicated to the low end market. Check the feature requests on cPanel, Nginx was requested 6 years ago and still not launched into production.

    Well, of course DA is not on par with CPanel. CPanel has a market share of what, 90%?

    DA gaining overall 10% of total market share will be considered very successful.

    Nope! That's true.. There's no comparison between cPanel and DA
    But their recent pricing sucks..
    Anyway DA is just capturing the market.. Once it's established itself like cPanel it will follow the cPanel's path
