    After recent insane Cpanel license price increase, do you think cpanel popularity will decrease? What might be alternative reliable control panel?

    Just like i just said - no one can blame any hosting company for bailing on cPanel....
    This should be hard for many companies to just be ok with it.

    It will take a bit of time for DirectAdmin to settle in, it is quite a good panel but many customers have not used it before, I think once a large enough company switches to DirectAdmin, we will see many others follow that path, currently I see quite a few companies offering both cPanel and DirectAdmin based services. So I think since most customers are comfortable with cPanel they would like to continue to using it as long as possible.

    cPanel Alternatives, I think the best one would be DirectAdmin currently

    I think 80% users dont even care as long the uptime and reliability is great. Most of my users dont even login to cpanel and prefer using FTP.
    So, If we can do something like this :

    The main damage is to CPanel Reseller Hosting services, where the new account pricing scheme kills unlimited reseller plans off. Dedicated Server licenses can pass the cost easily along to the client, and they can make the decision to pay the higher price or move to something else. Shared hosting, the provider can make their decision to keep CPanel, eat the price increase OR raise prices to clients, or switch to another option. As long as not selling Shared Hosting for pennies, should not be a huge issue, as the per account price is not ridiculous. If you are selling Shared Hosting for $2/year, then you have a problem.
