CPanel vs Plesk

qogpgpls's Avatar
What do you consider a better software? Plesk or CPanel. Which one do you use often?

I use CPanel most often and I am very experienced towards it. Plesk is pretty good, it was the first software i ever used for managing my paid sites. In General, I would say CPanel is better since its much easier to use and customize.

Thanks in advance for your ideas

Plesk is complete piece of junk as far as I know because you have too little control over your box as a whole from command line. Say you want to restart Apache and you should not be doing outside the interface of plesk and if you try you are bound to crash your box. Plesk itself runs on Apache and so everything you want to be doing in command line has to be done using Plesk which is hell lot tougher.

For me, My vote goes to cPanel. My clients prefer cpanel over plesk. They find it more userfriendly and appealing. First impression counts more. With the wide adoption of cPanel, it is easy to migrate cPanel accounts. i.e. if I would want to migrate a group of accounts to another server, it can be done easily.

Well there are some glitches in Plesk which are also carry forwarded with new version. Also their support help desk is not so active like cPanel. I think if you are using Windows platform then you will have to try cPanel's Encompass control panel.

jhonden if you elaborate which part you don't understand, then it would be easy for us to give you specific information.
