Plesk vs cPanel, who is the best?
Yes, I asking because i prefer Plesk all my life
but cpanel is very requested

Best features :
- WordPress Toolkit
- Let's Encrypt
- Git Support
- Node.js Support
- Apache + Nginx
- All extensions : pagespeed module, plesk migrator, security advisor etc..
cPanel/WHM is more designed for web hosting providers, that's why there are two panel. cPanel for users, WHM for administrators.
Each panel provide all features needed, but it make cPanel usage harder on a vps for a single user. Switching between cPanel and WHM is painful

I really love Plesk for the same reason you listed, also has a very big community and faq to help client from beginning

If it was on a VPS or dedicated server, then it depends on each person, some could choose Plesk while others will choose cPanel for any purposes.

A lot of person on vps and dedicated server because cPanel has unlimited site and domain, plesk has different license for service and domain

Web Host license with unlimited domain, cost the same than cPanel

Some company incuded in cost of VPS cPanel license.
For me Plesk is more stable and not expensive.
Some clients, tell me prefer Cpanel because has 2 different interface one for client and one for administration
And yes plesk support cloudinux https://www.plesk.com/plesk-with-cloudlinux

IMO, cPanel is great for PHP hosting and Plesk is great for ASP.Net hosting as it supports that out of the box. And cPanel has a good win on the shared hosting because of CloudLinux. I do not know is CloudLinux supports Plesk?

Plesk on linux is most popular than Plesk on Windows, and you can install Plesk on Centos/Debian/Ubuntu/Cloudlinux with multi-php version support, Apache + Nginx.
cPanel is very popular with all US Shared hosting providers, but it's not the same in Europe

We've always been a Plesk shop but over the last few years we started to focus on Cpanel more. I think I'm going to move our focus back to Plesk. I really like the direction they are going in with Onyx. Every host offers cheap Cpanel hosting. You aren't exactly going to stand out from the crowd. Yep, back to Plesk in a big way.

so you come back to use plesk?
07-20-2017, 03:48 AM #12
Have always used it but will focus on it instead of Cpanel moving forward.

cPanel is expensive than Plesk but they offered all features at a price.
07-20-2017, 04:03 AM #14
There is nothing of value that cPanel can do that Plesk can't.
07-20-2017, 08:12 AM #15
mmm..there is a few things cPanel can't and Plesk does:
- automatic backup: setup automatic backup also via ftp to another server
- plesk migrator move site very easy and quickly
if i remember better, cpanel don't.

Both have similar features. What you need to consider is the price. If you are hosting under 10 domains then you should purchase Plesk web admin edition which costs only $4.17

Are extra modules? I never see these options
