I see that Plesk Onyx admin's modules load pretty slow, same as cPanel but websites on Plesk seems loading faster. For loading modules in web hosting control panel, i vote for Directadmin, it is very fast.
I would start a new VPS with a paid hosting panel but getting confused in choosing one. Could you guys share me your experience which is better for manage an unmanaged VPS, Plesk or Cpanel or Directadmin? which one is better? why?
Cpanel is number one, and next ones are DA and Plesk. but If I can choose, I will vote for Directadmin because its price is better than always giving me an optimized servers better than cPanel or Plesk, it helps your websites run faster.
You know, this question will always be asked time and time again. The way that I see it, cPanel has been a community favorite for over a decade. It's become the "default" in the hosting community. Most people who started building websites, or finding an interest in web sites and web hosting, first started their experience off cPanel.
When you think about which control panel is better, it really comes down to your preference. A lot of people like to compare it towards its features, or how diverse the panel can be on different operating systems. That's all great but how many of you are actually going to be using more than 40% of those resources? If it's something you are providing, sure, options are better, so it just comes down to preference. What works for YOU.
DirectAdmin has been the underdog for some time, and I'm glad the company I'm with started offering DirectAdmin with cPanel. We've got a mass number of people on DirectAdmin and I don't ever hear anything too negative about DA from cPanel customers who migrated other than getting used to the interface. I personally think DA deserves a lot more respect than it does and certainly a good option to have.
But again, this comes down to PREFERENCE and nothing more.
If you were to compare various "affordable" vehicle brands, there is never an answer as to which one is "better" but rather which one suits the drivers needs. Some people go for the features, the comfort ability of the vehicle whereas some other go for minimal features but how the car looks. Am I right or am I wrong? Nobody wanted a Prius when they first came up, but when that sucker was getting 98 MPG, better believe people said they didn't mind the looks.
So when you compare cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and I'm going to include InterWorx in this statement. All have pro's and con's, it just really comes down to YOUR preference and what you can get out of it for what YOU need.
