    Plesk Onyx is more ergonomic and interface is very intuitive. It include all modern features to manage wordpress and make website loading fast and secured.
    Best features :
    - WordPress Toolkit
    - Let's Encrypt
    - Git Support
    - Docker
    - 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

    Yes Plesk seems customized better than cPanel but cPanel is more user friendly for newbies. If you are a new person to web hosting control then with cPanel you didn't need to read more document to use it while Plesk is a bit difficult to use their interface and guide there.

    Who requests? because everyone didn't have a chance to choose hosting control panel on a shared hosting thus they must go with the choice of their provider.
    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.

    On VPS Plesk Onyx is cheaper than cPanel, and the Web Pro license for 30 domains is enough for almost all users, and cost only 10$/mo with a vps and $15 with a dedicated server.
    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 Onyx support Cloudlinux too, with discount on Plesk + Cloudlinux license. And Cgroups resources management is included with Plesk Onyx to limit user resources usage without having to pay for Cloudlinux
    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.

    You are right on this point, Plesk only offers 10 sites on web admin edition plan so if someone is having more than 10 websites but want to use Plesk license at $4.17/mo then should consider before going with this option.

    cPanel is expensive than Plesk but they offered all features at a price.

    There is nothing of value that cPanel can do that Plesk can't.

    for me is a nightmare moving on cpanel! I really dont like and i dont know why, client who buy the cpanel licenseand install on server ALL but really ALL client after 2-3 month has hacked server.I really dont explain the reason


    mmm..there is a few things cPanel can't and Plesk does:

    1. automatic backup: setup automatic backup also via ftp to another server
    2. 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

    cPanel have automatic backup ( FTP or you can even choose Amazon S3 ) and yes it have a Transfer Tool also. ( Support cross platform migration. Eg, Plesk to cPanel, DirectAdmin to cPanel )
