Hello everyone

I know Plesk has been out for quite a while, but I have never gotten a chance to really use it. Cpanel appears to be the more popular panel, at least that is what it looks like to me. Word is also out that the same company which put money into Plesk, also put money into cPanel.

Would anyone know if there is a big difference in market share between these two panels?

I don't have a clue about market share, but if you have a choice of the two, why not go with the one that has the most support documentation, a great support Forum, and an excellent product that has been proven over times and times, consistently over a very long time. I've been working with WHM/cpanel for a few years. I don't think Plesk is a serious consideration in comparison.

The only reason people go for Plesk is because it has Windows support. cPanel leads the market as it is user friendly and more stable than Plesk

Yes a lot of users prefer Plesk for Windows. cPanel is well known for its excellent features, support, flexibilty and user friendly interface. A beginner can easily get used to with the cPanel interface.

The huge rise pf cPanel prices would make many hosting services to move on to other panels like Plesk or even some custom ones.

I found the Linux onyx plesk very great. If you choose between plesk and cpanel, you should choose plesk. Because it supports very well on different OS platforms and it is very optimized for your website

Yes a lot of users are switching to Plesk and DirectAdmin beacuse of the sudden price rise in cPanel. We have added Plesk and DirectAdmin to our VPS and Dedicated Server plans as an alternative to cPanel. We have seen a sudden rise in Plesk orders too.

We abandoned cPanel and Plesk because of both are owned by same company and Plesk linux version is not like cpanel. Why waste money when you can use DirectAdmin.

How did you manage the data move to DirectAdmin?

We have a lot of users wanting specific cPanel features like Softaculous, the existing and easy email interface cPanel offers and other cPanel features. Unfortunately they have no option but to stay with cPanel and pay the new price.
