Supported instance types are out of date?

  • November 29, 2021

It would be nice if m5zn and c6i instance types could be supported by this so that we can improve our website speeds with the faster x86 based processors. These sort of limitations make me whish I had not used this for my webserver. M5zn was released Dec 1st, 2020
And c6i was announced last month

Great hosting dashboard, sadly being strangled by its new investment fund owners.

What do you like best about the product?
Everything! I've been using cPanel based hosting for my whole career and, once you add a modern skin to it, it's ideal and easy to use. Hosting providers have found ways to customise it and features of their own, technology's like Let's Encrypt's free SSL solutions have been easily integrated. It's a wonderful catch all and expandable solution to manage everything from hosting - from quick software installs via Fantastico and Softaculous to managing more complex things like DNS/MX records or jumping into a SQL database for some manual alterations. cPanel has really managed it all over the years.
What do you dislike about the product?
In 2019 cPanel was bought by an investment firm, Oakley Capital. They proceeded to massively increase the price that they charge hosting companies for each installation of cPanel - it can work out to a 1000% prise rise. So far the hosts I used have absorbed this cost but it's not sustainable. Other hosts like SiteGround have dumped cPanel are going to the effort of creating their own proprietary hosting dashboards from scratch - a noble goal but one that will create fragmentation and make it harder just to easily migrate hosting by moving a whole cPanel backup.

Forget Plesk as an alternative, the same price gouging investment company owns them too. It would be great to see hosts worldwide pool their resources and move to a "Linus organisation style" free and open source alternative. Some already exist but the don't have sufficient weight behind them to take them to the next level.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I can't remember a time before cPanel! I'm quite sure that I've been using it for my whole career and I've always looked for web hosting that has cPanel support. Sadly that now has to change.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Previously I would always recommend cPanel based hosting, however with the 1000% price hike placed on hosting providers, that cost will either be passed on or providers will switch to other hosting dashboard software or, like Siteground, create their own.

To those considering cPanel since it was taken over in 2019 by Oakley Capital, I say that you should no longer consider it the deciding factor when picking hosting.

Easy server management but costs too much

What do you like best about the product?
I like Cpanel's easy (for average users) interface, but I use it only for those clients that demand it, and are prepared to pay for it. I don't use it myself as I use a similar product which is free.
What do you dislike about the product?
One major peeve I have with Cpanel is that average users cannot easily migrate servers because you need WHM access for that, which most average user's don't have. But I don't really mind as it gets me some side business of Cpanel server migration.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Cpanel is used by my clients and I can easily manage their servers.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
There are free alternatives available, but they are little tougher than Cpanel. So, go for it, if you are an average user who uses outsourced workers, because there are more workers experienced with Cpanel.
