WHMCS Owned = No Transfers allowed and No 12 month support packages.....

A recent email from WHMCS........

"Thank you for contacting WHMCS.

Our Senior Management Team has recently revised our Terms of Service and End User License Agreement (EULA) modifying the License Transfer Policy. Due to this, we now no longer allow the transfer of any type of license to a third party. Following this change, holders of an “Owned Software License” may no longer make transfer of their licenses.

Owned Licenses were discontinued from sale in October 2016, and this is the next stage in our winding down of an end of life product line.

Due to this update in policy, the decision was made to remove the 12 month option for Support and Updates at this time. The option that is currently available is the 6 month option.
We do apolozise if this has caused any inconvenience to you."

    I wonder if they're planning on removing the 6 month support option next year.

    I wondered this.... That is really unfair... I mean I made 14 tickets last year and 2 this year.
    Some of them were marketplace ones...

    it was $99 a year... (been a customer since 2015)

    now its about 59.95 per 6 months so a $20 increase over a year... I buy a few 6 months

    @cociu DA owned allows updates... Just no support.... I can live with that :)

    I've been saying it for hundreds of years.

    The end is nigh.

    There are two things that make Earth spin: Money and PMS.

  • Ouch. Way to piss off long term customers.

    Licence transfers are maybe understandable but changing support plus the cPanel pain is going to push a lot of people into looking at other options.

    Just trying to puss all their customers to pay on monthly basis, just they don’t care about owned license holders anymore.

  • Non paying lifetime licenses around = WHMCS no gusta.

    Monthly licenses = WHMCS gusta mucho. : )

    Feel bad you man. I belive you have a few lifetime license on your sleeve.

    We really need a standarized open source solution for both billing and panel. So company won't pull this shenanigans every fucking years.

    If the open source solution can get as big as WordPress the company will sure learn its places.

    Can't be compared. WHMCS never had 'lifetime', you always had to have a support contract ($100/year?) for updates. You saved some cash and I guess had the option to not upgrade if you wanted, but at least back then you really needed to.

    7+ hasn't done much but break a lot of things. 3ds is great but it took way too long to come about. Pay methods are nice but they're a shitshow to work with.

    This makes me quite glad we left WHMCS behind now. Though, at the rate their parent organization is shaking cPanel and WHMCS up... how long is it until they hike to $0.50/customer on top of it all?

  • Just from greed, I am feeling a price increase from them soon. Already moving to other options now, maybe Blesta or WiseCP.

    I looked at host I’ll and it works with more of my suppliers, like inty, but not sure if it’s worth it?
