Best Web Hosting Control Panels after the cPanel Price Hike

Tags: , , , Date/Time: July 2, 2020 @ 12:02 pm, by Jon Biloh

Web Hosting Control Panels play a very important role in shared hosting as it provides easy management of web hosting, databases, DNS configuration and mail box. One of the most common control panel, which almost every web hosting customer has used is cPanel that is feature rich.

Recently, cPanel raised their software licenses and shifted to per account model which caused the extremely variable price hike to providers. It shook the providers who were offering affordable hosting. However, it cannot be denied that cPanel is an industry-leading control panel, but per account model was not sustainable for some providers and that caused them to move to other cPanel alternatives.

We have listed the best cPanel alternatives below, however, your choice may be different, so let us know in the comments so we can know your opinions about the best alternatives.

Interview: Q&A with Low End Talk Moderator Nekki

Interview: Q&A with Low End Talk Moderator NekkiIn this interview, we connect with the legendary @Nekki, whose account dates from August 2011.  As of this writing he has over 18,700 comments, and an even more impressive 20,000+ thanks. From his break-the-Internet Black Friday threads to his Marquis de Safe method of moderation, @Nekki is one of LET’s true OGs, past masters, and black eminences. Let’s dive into his personality a bit. Before continuing please consider that this interview is Nekki in his own, raw words, and is therefore not safe for work (R-rated)!

Where in the world do you live?

In the UK, on the outskirts of London, but hopefully not for long.

What is your background with IT?

I’ve been fucking around with computers since I was 8, and starting getting involved in programming around 11 when I started hacking about with a game my uncle made to add in characters and places from The Transformers. Professionally, I’ve been in IT about 18 years across a lot of roles, from front-end development all the way to infrastructure management, from retouching imagery to delivering a transactional banking platform.

What’s your day job?

Officially, I head up an IT infrastructure/platform delivery team for a very large FTSE100-traded organisation. Unofficially, I spend much of my day in meetings stopping people from doing insane things and fighting with each other, pulling arses out of the fire, rescuing projects and wishing I’d done something less frustrating and stressful with my life.
