NextCloud – What’s your privacy worth?

Get control of your data with NextCloud hosting by Velocity Host

Cloud services are often a target for hackers, which means that your data could be at risk of falling into the wrong hands. Dropbox was hacked in 2016 where data for over 68 million user accounts were stolen and put up for sale on the dark web. It’s not just DropBox… Google has also fallen victim to password security breaches. Nearly 5 million Gmail accounts were hacked when their database was dumped on a Russian security forum. To make matters worse, Google Drive uses the same account to login to Gmail, this meant that both platforms were compromised as a result. As for Microsoft, it is the number one targeted platform for hackers and cybercriminals and has been hacked several times. The most recent was in January 2019 where 773 million emails and tens of millions of passwords from a variety of domains were leaked.

Dear Valued Customers,

The long and short of cPanels price increase

cPanel Inc have not increased their prices for around 10 years and unfortunately, the time has come for an increase of their cPanel/WHM control panel product.

Increases are normal but this has come as rude shock to the industry as costs have increased in excess of 400% on average to license types for different packages.

Yearly licenses are no longer available – as such, when current yearly licenses are due for renewal, they will be converted into one of the below license types billed monthly. See pricing table below for new prices based on a per account model.

Prices are in AUD, inclusive of GST and are month by month.
