Plesk or cPanel?

I used cPanel for many years when I was on shared hosting, and I think VPS.  When I switched to a fully dedicated server, I was give Plesk.  Wow, it is far superior and offers way more control over the server.   I'll never go back! hehe

Well, any software that is free would lower the cost of hosting (probably). That's something to consider.

I use paid hosting and the company that I'm using they have Cpanel in the hosting so I've been using Cpanel. I like it.

If I had to choose a GUI control panel I would be Plesk. It's less expensive than cPanel, more user-friendly, faster, and less cluttered. I used cPanel for a long time. Once they raised their prices I swapped around for a few different control panels and finally settled on Plesk.

A few honorable mentions are:

CentminMod (highly recommend)

Sentroa is a shame. Could be a great cPanel clone. It doesn't support php 7.x lol So I would stay away from unfortunately.
