I haven't used Plesk lately but a while back I tried it and it was too buggy.

I also like Cpanel more than Plesk. For me, Plesk is so complicated and we always had issue with it before.

WHM/cPanel and Plesk are both feature rich control panels with similar functionality. They are, however, organized completely differently, have a different security model and use slightly different terminology.

I have used both, but prefer cPanel, however it is up to you in the end. Best seek out some demos of both and go with the one that fits your needs.

cPanel VS Plesk is kind of like asking "Windows VS Linux". In fact, because Plesk is pretty much IT for Windows control panels, it literally is.


That being said, here's my 0.02 on the matter, but first a bit about me and why I say what I do:

I've been in the hosting industry here and there since way before most of you were thought of (kidding, of course). I started my first 'hosting' (telnet based game, development stuff) company in the mid 90s, way before there was a 'cPanel' or 'Plesk' . Back in the days of Netscape Navigator, or **shudders** Mosaic, back when AOL mattered and those dial up tones were like music to our ears... Yes, I'm old. I've been developing code, websites and fun stuff since Geocities (another shuddering memory)

That being said, on the debate of Plesk vs cPanel:
Both have their upsides , of course. Both have their downsides. Plesk is pretty much the only (up to date) system for Windows, and cPanel is the defacto for Linux (at least here in the states).

Having dealt with Plesk, in early years, and recently (as in "where have you been the past year, Tom"), I have to strongly caution against using Plesk in any sort of 'professional' situation. The development team is second only to OnApp in just sheer incompetence and ignorance. It (literally) took a team of individuals close to a year to get Plesk Windows servers running properly, and even then, they still suffer almost weekly meltdowns . Plesk kept saying "Hey, we're looking at the issue", then just nothing for quite some time.

cPanel's got it's own issues, like I said, ignoring bugs simply because they can, sloppy code to some degrees, but I've never seen cPanel ignore critical, system failing bugs like I've seen with Plesk.

Of course, again, that's just my 0.02.

Totally agree. In my experience people choose cPanel often as it has more friendly UI and works with Linux. However, there are functionality on Plesk that is much more efficient for some tasks.

In my opinion, customers are so used to Cpanel that it is a disservice to your business if you use anything else.
For that reason, I don't believe using Plesk is a good idea.
I mean it does have its uses. Personal use for example.

This is not actually as true as you'd think

In the U.S and North America, it would be true, yes. However I've heard more than one person say that outside of the U.S. , Plesk is a lot more widely accepted

As already mentioned above, Plesk panel is better to use for Windows hosting, while cPanel for Linux. Both panel are pretty convenient, have all the needed features to manage hosting, but as for me - I would prefer cPanel, it is easy manageable, flexible, friendly-interface

Well, can add that most users favour Plesk over cPanel for its tidier GUI, which makes it simpler to understand and more intuitive to use. Its approach is to group tools on the left of the screen – as that’s the side people start reading from. And you can find more options buried under each tool.

cPanel is quiet cheaper compared to plesk panel. But plesk panel supports new technologies like Docker, Git and other unlike cPanel. Also plesk supports linux and windows operating system where as cpanel is only linux based control panel.
