Dear Valued Clients
We would like to advise that Hostking will be migrating all Shared Hosting, Sitebuilder, Prestashop, WordPress Hosting Accounts from cPanel to DirectAdmin control Panel in coming months.
Due to a significant increase in the price of provisioning cPanel servers we have opted to change preferred control panels rather than increasing pricing each time cPanel sends us a notice of pricing changes.
Clients are welcome to remain on cPanel by replying to the formal email we will send soon but the upgrade is recommended as future investments will be purely on DirectAdmin infrastructure.
DirectAdmin panel is based on cPanel and feels more like a face lift so migration is seamless without a learning curve.
Clients will still enjoy the same benefits but with improved highly available servers and performance at a lower price point.
Features will still include access email account management, File Manager, Softaculous suite, back-up and restore, PhpMyAdmin Databases and reporting, etc.
As most customers use the SiteBuilder or the WordPress Dashboards we found this to be a good move.
We trust this will be a welcome move and will mean ultimately we don't have to do regular changes to our pricing but rather keep them affordable as that is one of our company values.
