I haven't seen any news from VentraIP about any planned price increase yet. Can you please elaborate on this?

I am on a WHM multi account which is grandfathered with the intention to get 're-sellers' to move to Synergy I suspect, but at the time it suited my needs and with a 50% discount which they keep honouring at renewal times makes it difficult to move away from. :)

Below is the generic part of the email that essentially says $0.15 per account per month which for my sub 20 accounts is no big deal really, but for larger players it could be quite a hit, particularly if they are single sites to an account like I have seen at times when helping other people/agencies out.

On 27 June 2019 cPanel announced a new Account-based Pricing and Licensing structure to all partners and customers. Prior to this announcement, cPanel licenses were billed at a flat rate for an unlimited number of accounts per server. The new model now includes multiple tiers based on the number of accounts per server. In reality, this new pricing structure is an extreme cost increase, hitting hard for shared and reseller hosting providers globally.

The entire web hosting industry has been very vocal about the impact of these changes with large discussion threads happening on industry related forums such as Web Host Talk, cPanel's own forums and Whirlpool.

Under cPanel's new pay-per-account pricing structure the existing reseller plan that you are on is no longer sustainable at the current recurring price. In order to offset this increase in licensing costs, we have calculated new plan prices using a 15 cent increase per allocated cPanel account for each of our reseller hosting plans.

I just got an email this morning advising my VentraIP reseller account is increasing by 28% on 1 October.

Thanks Terry and Nicky. There's no sign so far that VentraIP shared web hosting accounts will be affected.
