  4. From what I understand, for shared hosting, each cpanel license (or sub-license) will be charged around $0.10 - $0.20/month going forward, assuming servers which typically host several hundred domains, are over any pre-packaged limits. Since that is $1.20 - $2.40 per year, it does not represent a huge increase for each one. It's up to HawkHost, given the ultra-competitive nature of the hosting business, if they want to bear that cost, pass it along to all customers, or only charge it on new accounts. In aggregate, it will matter more to Hosts than to customers who would see a charge of $25-50 per year go up by a dollar or two. Reseller, VPS, and Dedicated hosting accounts are another matter altogether, since that dollar or two can have a significant multiplier on it.
  5. There is now a second thread with more information on this topic on the Hawkhost forums. See the "Suggestions" section. LINK Also a blog post. LINK
  6. For VPS / cloud server clients we are in the process of researching other control panels, both paid and free options. Admittedly cPanel is the market leader in terms of usability/features/reliability but at a point it's hard to justify the costs if you only need basic functionality which some of the other panels out there can provide.
  7. Yeah I caught that email, though not the part about individual plan prices, thanks for pointing that out. I may still migrate my individual plan off anyways, just because. Or I dunno if there's thinking about a "Cpanel Free" individual offering that's cheaper at Hawkhost that I might sign up for. For the next month or 2 I'll see how this plays out then you may see me making some moves away from Cpanel.
  8. We posted this yesterday which you may find worth the read: Long and short of it is right now we have no plans on raising pricing on shared/semi-dedicated hosting plans. Reseller packages unfortunately are likely to see price changes based on the new cPanel license structure and them billing per cPanel account but when that is finalized we'll post another update. Then lastly VPS / cloud server customers will be seeing an increase in the price of their cPanel licenses simply as a pass-through cost from cPanel. This is all still very new to us as well so we're not rushing into any decisions.
  9. Well me, I'm seeing the value of Cpanel less and less upon doing this. I'm debating a few actions at Hawkhost as this increase comes into effect: 1) For my personal account where I host with Hawkhost, I'm honestly debating going VPS and ditching Cpanel. Presumably the increase in prices as Cpanel may trickle down to me on a Shared plan. Download a free hosting panel for my site and that's it. May cost me more, but look at what I get for it comparatively. 2) For the one organization with a VPS whom I manage I'll be bringing this price increase with them and see what they think about a outward migration from Cpanel. Either way Hawkhost has been awesome with me so I'll stick with you guys, Cpanel or otherwise :-) thanks!

  12. We have no railguns at this time in Hong Kong and have no estimate on when it would be available. Unfortunately this location has obstacles that make it more difficult.
  13. What about is Hongkong datacenter now?
  14. We just received this news today as well so we're still in the early stages of figuring out how exactly these changes impact us. I don't want to speculate on what changes, if any, this may have to our hosting prices. cPanel does not own either of those companies. That said they do have partnerships / integrations to make it easier to manage licenses under one roof through cPanel.
  15. I read today on that cPanel is making a big change to their pricing. Never having looked into this before, I don't know what it was before. My question is this: what effect will this have on Hawkhost pricing? It seems to me that at $2-3 per month for shared hosting, a hike in the cost of a cPanel license might eat into already tight margins. I understand this is quite new and may take a while to sort out, and, it would seem, the primary impact would be on Reseller accounts, but once you do figure it out, it would nice to know its down-the-line knock-on effects. Also, I see that on the ("page" is not part of the link) they mention Cloud Linux and Litespeed. Does cPanel own those, too?
  16. This is not software I'm familiar with offhand so unfortunately I don't have any personal suggestions on installation / debugging. If you open a ticket through your client area at with the error(s) you're seeing our team can attempt to assist.

  21. Unfortunately these logs are not readable by shared users as like you mentioned it does require root access. If you're concerned about logins / unusual activity to your email address(es) our team can provide you the last login entries we have for the address(es) in question via support ticket.
  22. Since this a question of perhaps general interest, I'll ask it here: Is it possible for a shared hosting user to read the cpanel webmail access logs for his site? On the cpanel forums, the location is identified as > cPanel, WHM, and Webmail activity is logged to /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log. > The ability to review this log file is restricted to the root user. ... The latter part appears correct since "ls /usr/local/cpanel" gives permission denied, ... and "ls /usr/local/cpanel/logs/" gives "no such file or directory. Is there a way to make this accessible? Perhaps not, if everyone's are all mixed together. Access from a POP client would also be useful - but that might evade even any generat cpanel logs.
  23. Once approved domain transfers take 5 days to complete per ICANN regulations. If a transfer is pending for longer than that it means there is likely a pending formality preventing the transfer.

  24. Hello! This depends on how you're connecting to MySQL. If you're doing local connections from a script hosted on the server then the hostname would be "localhost" If instead you're connecting remotely then you would use the server hostname or primary IP. Our team would need to whitelist the IP(s) you're connecting from before it will work, and that can be handled via ticket (
