As much as i like WHMCS, this was horrible in many ways and has nothing positive besides WHMCS team thinking they will increase their pocket earnings.

I'm not sure if we can really blame the WHMCS team. Except for Matt Pugh, the CEO. Because he certainly knew exactly how the whole thing would end when he sold it.

I can well imagine that some – or even the most – of the WHMCS staff don't like the price hike either. WHMCS has become the toy of WebPros and now they are making money as much as they can. Just like they did it before and just like they will do with Plesk.

I guess if WHMCS doesn't change this price-hike. WHMCS will only be a tool available to the biggest brands that are 'stuck' and find WHMCS the only software for billing and don't have in mind of moving.

For sure. I totally agree. Today is the most beautiful day for WHMCS alternative companies. I think Blesta will emerge as the winner from all the alternatives. 

And well, even if WHMCS lowers prices - which they won't - the trust would be gone and anyone in their right mind would still switch.

Mat is no longer the CEO of WHMCS?

Hi,

Sigh.. I don't know what to say?

There is no warning at all. Terrible to be treated in such manner.

the most positive spin you can put on the last 24 hours is that someone at WHMCS handled the announcement process very very badly... i'm struggling to think of a worse example of how to announce something like this.

judging by the vast number of emails I received this morning, I think a lot of users have now passed the point of no return and will move on elsewhere - I don't blame them.

btw - I suspect the timing of the announcement might be linked to it being the first day of the UK tax year.... either that, or it was a remarkable coincidence.

absolutely he knows - either that, or he's a puppet who's not really in charge... can't have it both ways.

it's too late now, but he would have been better served spending less time hiding behind blog posts, and more time reading/posting in this place, and not delegating the responsibility to others who don't have the authority to say boo! and can only reel out the copy&paste corporate sentences.

Sir you increased price a lot and a lot. some indivisual providers can't afford that because maybe their total earning of the month is lower or half of the WHMCS License Price.

i was using WHMCS from many years, but now i think i have to leave it. cPanel Price increased and WHMCS price also increased. nothing is left for us.

Maybe Plesk will also increase price in few months. then nothing will left for us. 

Now i'm thinking to invest some time and create a person billing system and a personal control panel. You providers are thinking you will ask us for 1000$ and we give? No way ! we create our way then when the provider started looting us !

it's not correct to first attract people for lower price and then suddenly increase price.
