In all honest, DirectAdmin is my favourite. It loads faster than cPanel, and the interface seems somehow, I guess, simpler.

But cPanel is all the rage these days, and a very close second, so that's what we offer our clients. And it was my favourite until I started really using DirectAdmin.

Mostly I tend to build my own panels, because it's a lot faster to do things. Like I can just literally type the account and amount to upgrade, instead of having to navigate through 4 pages with WHM.

I've not really used Plesk much. Been no need to.

I'd choose cPanel anytime.

I really haven't got enough experience with cPanel but from the moment I've used it, I have never thought of using another control panel. I'm open for improvements but right now, I'm very much comfortable with cPanel.

I would choose cpanel because they have really great technical support. If you run into a bind they will even login to your server and fix the issue. They answer tickets quickly.

I'm beginning to see a theme here. ;-)

I personally use Plesk as I've been using Parallels products for a long time.

I started hosting as a customer and had a few hosts, I liked cPanel most then and still same today.

Now Im a web host and out of choice I use cPanel as its the best out there imo.

I prefer cPanel over plesk. cPanel has a lot of backend scripts to fix things.

For me, cPanel is the preferred of the two. I used to check it daily but now I check it on a weekly basis.

cPanel is way more better than Plesk. Fast and easy to understand.

Well... we use both and although I have opinion who's better I shall not share it here, because they are quite different as an approach to web hosting automation.
