    which is better, cPanel or Plesk?

    if you have to choose between a host that offers cPanel and another host that offers Plesk, which one would you choose?
    I think cPanel is the most popular one and mostly used, but is it really better (i.e. provides more functionalities) than Plesk?

    CPanel all the way, it's easier on the client, has more features, and better for the host since its more customizable.

    I think it's like Windows and Linux. More features, more bugy. Less bugy more difficult.

    cPanel is easier and I believe it has more features then Plesk. It's upto the client to choose which they like the most.

    I'm actully using both at the moment but I'm migrating all the customers on the Plesk server to the Cpanel one. I wouldn't say Plesk is crap but it has nowhere near the features and usability that WHM/Cpanel has.

    I'd say that whichever one you like better, use it. They're all about the same in the end.

    NOTE: I'm not counting H-Sphere in this as I feel that it's much more than just a control panel, it's true hosting automation and to call it anything but is just an insult.
