This probably has been asked by many. What is the difference between cPanel or Plesk? Which would be easier to use in terms of managing it.

cPanel ( an excellent control panel ) is ONLY for Linux Servers. Plesk can be used for both Linux and Windows.

Both offer excellent features. Plesk is a bit cheaper.

Panel is a Linux-based Web-hosting control panel with an easy-to-use graphical interface and automation tool suite designed to make website hosting simpler to manage. cPanel is designed with a three-tier structure. Its functionality is tailored to suit the needs of administrators, reseller and end-user website managers, with server administration and website management controlled through a Web browser. cPanel is possibly the most popular and stable control panel solution.

The Plesk Web Host Edition offers hosting service providers the ability to configure and maintain Windows or Linux servers. Service Provider Management has simple controls to create subscription packages for resellers, customers and individuals. Bundled Word Press supportability tools make use of Plesk 12.5 enhanced server-to-site security features, which are useful for shared hosting. Unlimited accounts and domains are supported.

Both panels would be easier to use in terms of managing the server.

But, I would personally suggest cPanel.

Cpanel
1.It is linux based.
2.Enables users to set up most CMSs with simple installers.
Plesk
1.It is both linux and windows based.
2.Supports most popular CMSs and provides installers for them.

Not really an unlimited Plesk licence is dearer than cPanel.

cPanel gives you unlimited domains for a single fee.

Plesk gives staged licences

cPanel licence for VPS is 11.37 a month ($15) for unlimited domains

Plesk Licence for VPS

10 domains 9.16 a month ($12)
30 domains 13.75 a month ($18.15)
Unlimited domains 41.25 a month ($54.42)

cPanel and Plesk are most commonly used control panel in the world. Plesk panel supports various Linux distributions and windows too. Both control panels organized in different ways in feature listing, security model and terminology.

If you are looking for Linux servers, cPanel is best and user friendly. But it only works in CentOS.

In terms of management, either is relatively easy, meaning the learning curve is not steep.

Personally I prefer cPanel and dislike Plesk. I do have far more experience with cPanel for that reason.

I've heard that Plesk has a larger market share in Europe than in USA. So if rumour is true, offer Plesk if providing services in Europe. Both are easy to use except all the different price structures Plesk has...

Both are great control panels and have almost all features available in plesk same as in cPanel. The price is less for Plesk is the only difference. Also, the user interface is not similar. If you are already using cPanel and you may experience little bit difficulty when you switch to plesk, for example the SSL installation.

I heard elsewhere that Plesk was recently hiked up to ~47% or something from their previous pricing scheme to all of their licensing products.

It's not that, it just weird how they just hiked it up so much. Someone even claimed of being with them for 12 years and axing them. Which seems to me that they won't even grandfather the older customers to begin with.
