Cpanel

cPanel, one of the most widely used hosting control panels, today announced shifting to an account-based pricing and licensing structure. The new structure will be applicable to cPanel partners, cPanel Store customers and distributors. cPanel’s pricing and licensing structure will now be standardized for all the customers and will include multiple Tiers. As stated in the cPanel mail that was sent to the partners and distributors today, the move is aimed to simplify the process of adding new servers and to make it easier for users to become a cPanel customer. cPanel had defined its original pricing structure nearly twenty years ago and the hosting world has undergone complete transformation since then, with servers becoming powerful enough to run hundreds of websites on a single processor.

Los Angeles, CA – AlphaRacks, a premium infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider based out of California currently in a phase of growth-through-acquisition, is today pleased to announce that it has closed on the acquisition of HostMyBytes, a provider of virtual hosting services. This acquisition adds 23,000 customers to AlphaRacks’ platform, now serving over 100,000 customers worldwide.

The Los Angeles based IaaS company is actively acquiring cloud computing, virtual hosting, and technology-enabled firms in the industry, most recently also acquiring NFPHosting and WootHosting early 2019, who were previously competitors in the IaaS space. AlphaRacks is actively acquiring other United States-based companies where customers can benefit from the economies of scale and operational efficiencies that AlphaRacks can add to the table, using its years of industry experience and available resources.


“This year, as a company, we are in an ideal point which enables us to grow via client acquisition, and the HostMyBytes acquisition is a continued testament to that. AlphaRacks continues to add functional and integrable assets to our hosting portfolio that are in hot-performing markets,” said Julian Jin, managing director with AlphaRacks. “Our new investment serves 23,000 new customers from over 105 different countries and will allow us to expand our global presence even further.”

HostMyBytes has been in business for over five years and hosts more than eighty thousand domains on its global network. The company’s goal is to further streamline a personalized hosting solution to meet the rising technology demands of businesses today. AlphaRacks plans to leverage company resources, assets and implement its operational efficiencies to add order in place for HostMyBytes customers, similar to its successful strategy for its prior acquisitions in the IaaS space.

“We express eager enjoyment and passion to welcome all HostMyBytes customers onto the AlphaRacks platform.” commented Julian Jin. “We will be adding HostMyBytes customers into the AlphaRacks brand seamlessly, so that customers can immediately take advantage of the additional operational and support benefits we offer by standard. Customers of HostMyBytes will also be pleased to know that we won’t be changing any existing pricing arrangements that were agreed upon with previous management.” commented Julian Jin.

He further states, “HostMyBytes has been in business for five years and initially began with humble beginnings. Despite growing pains, we applaud previous HostMyBytes owners for maintaining and building an affordable hosting experience for its multiple dozens of customers from around the globe. We strive on improving upon everything they have built so far, from infrastructure to customer experience – and everything will be done with our customer’s benefit in mind.”

HOUSTON, TX – cPanel is excited to announce a new partnership with JetApps. Starting immediately, users can buy a JetBackup license directly from cPanel.

JetBackup supplies hosting providers with a great deal of flexibility by allowing unlimited backup jobs, multiple schedules per job and unlimited destinations. Creating and applying custom hooks to backup and restore functions gives companies the ability to meet the unique needs of their clients.


When asked about the importance of quality backups, Eric Ellis, Vice President of Customer Experience for cPanel, LLC said, “Throughout my technical career, I’ve always preached about how vital it is to make and test backups. Understanding how important this is when considering a backup technology partnership, JetBackup stood out as a dependable name in backup software making it an easy choice for cPanel. I’ll be using this robust software on my servers from now on.”

JetBackup’s self-service functionality allows cPanel end-users, hosting customers, to restore an account in seconds, removing the support burden with traditional cPanel & WHM backups. Some hosting providers have seen up to 70% fewer support tickets related to account backups and restores. When clients have speed and ease-of-use, it is a win-win for both cPanel partners and their clients. Users can also enable JetBackup’s GDPR compliance feature for their account backups.

“We love partnering with companies that share our values of providing a high-quality product, backed by excellent customer service. Naturally, cPanel was a perfect fit! It has been a pleasure working with the entire cPanel team throughout this process of deepening the compatibility and integration of JetBackup into cPanel & WHM®. This partnership is a great benefit to both cPanel and JetBackup customers alike,” Tim Hollis, CEO of JetApps, Inc.

JetBackup is now for sale directly through the cPanel store and the Manage2 portal for cPanel partners. It will be available later this year for purchase through the WHM® interface.
