I am going to move some sites to a new hosting server because there are many sites in a server that I am hosting them on. I am using cPanel, Directadmin and Plesk Onyx for websites but I am more familiar to cPanel and Directadmin, I rarely use Plesk Onyx hence I feel difficult to control it completely but I see it has more advantages and features, especially it can help boost my website load faster. What do you think about this? should I choose Plesk Onyx for a new hosting server?

Any reason why you use so many?

Plesk Onyx is actually one of the most promising control panels. They have better UI/UX design now and much more new features. I would surely recommend it for you and if you will like it, after some time you can migrate to Plesk Onyx from DirectAdmin and cPanel into one place. You can migrate Plesk Onyx from cPanel 11.5 and DirectAdmin 1.51 version.

I agree with you and I will plan to move websites to Plesk Onyx. I need prepare plans for websites in the case they have problems on DA or cPanel.

If the sites are yours and you have time to play with Plesk, go for it. Plesk Onyx is much better if compared to their old versions. But, if the sites hosted on the server are not yours, or belong to your clients, your clients would probably prefer cPanel as it's easier and more user friendly.

My recommendation is cPanel, there is much more plugins, ex. security (cPGuard, imunify360, pyxsoft and etc).

Directadmin problem is there need always build everything from source's (server updating take's lot of time), but same time OS support is much better.

Used both, prefer Plesk. Much better UI, no need for 2 control panels, native Nginx support with fastcgi/proxy_cache, WordPress Toolkit is dank. But I hope everyone continues to use Cpanel so we can continue to dominate the Plesk market. :)

I don't like UI of Plesk, if someone used cPanel and first time using Plesk it is not convenient for them to use this panel. I am one of them :D which I like from Plesk is, it used Nginx and more good features for users.
But I hope everyone continues to use Cpanel so we can continue to dominate the Plesk market. :)
I am still using cPanel for clients' websites because it is easy to configure and use.
