An alternative solution for cPanel on cost efficiency
Cpanel is one of the most commonly used control panels, is trusted by most suppliers and especially data centers.
This is because Cpanel runs on a Linux platform quite well, the load time compared to other hosting administration parts is relatively fast. In addition, it also integrates the management agent of hosting (Reseller Hosting) called WebHostManager, often abbreviated as WHM, which can help you make the most of VPS / Dedicated Server resources (Virtual Server / Private server) and share or sell it to those who want to use hosting or another hosting agency.
Cpanel license pricing has been updated and the prices are more expensive than the current price. For customers who hosted shared servers with not many accounts could find cpanel more expensive and will be looking for an alternative solution.
