Not necessarily. You're assuming their margins are so thin that such a price increase would break them. I'd venture to argue if their margins were that thin - they're not going to be around long either way.

Sure - and if the internet were to take a dump - what now? Are those providers also prepared to change to Internet V2? There are somethings that there are worth planning for and then others that are more than likely going to be a waste of time planning. It's all about risk and mitigating said risk.

That said Plesk is still Plesk - it hasn't gone anywhere it's just gotten more expensive. The company's financials will dictate whether increasing prices, shifting control panels, or doing nothing at all are what need to be done.

Sure - and there are risks worth taking the time to attempt to mitigate and then risks that are so unlikely that taking the time to plan ahead for them doesn't make sense.
