cpanel can not be bought, a host can not own
it, it is leased, so their cost for it ontop of the server and everything else
dictates how much thay have to charge. same goes for free hsoing services.
Hosting would be cheaper if we quit using hosting service's using cPanel.
Oh, and fantatico can not be owned, it costs about $400.00 a year
those 2 cPanel, and fantatico put the burden on the users to pay more
Just my observation of the past 5 years.
