    I personally use it for any website hosting I do for me and others. There are a few others but I have stuck with the old tried and true and it always works for me and I know how to get around it so it has become a breeze for me. For those who are extremely new to websites and hosting or to those with very little technical know how cPanel could be very overwhelming and they might want to do like a managed WordPress hosting where they don't really have to see or deal with cPanel. I also probably wouldn't use it for straight email hosting. If you have thousands of cPanel accounts it may get very expensive and that could be a factor.

    It is suitable for the scenarios that require more automation of the workloads in heterogeneous environments in order to reduce human errors and standardize the workflow.

    Pros

    cPanel

    • The dashboard is very intuitive. Even beginners can figure out how to do things without very much help.
    • The online community is very helpful and the online documentation makes administering any tasks a lot easier.
    • User creation and administration for FTP access is also very simple.

    Cons

    cPanel

    • The costs can be a limiting factor for some businesses if you are not using a web hosting company that uses it. I have been experimenting with Cloud hosting, which can be very daunting for the novice. There is an option to install it on the cloud but it is expensive.

    • Maybe UI can be further improved to be more intuitive and user friendly.

    Although it can be a little bit bloated with a lot of options and configurations, it's very straightforward to use and maintain. So it's a great option even if you don't have large experience in hosting configuration. The WHM tool is more suited to heavy users since it requires more expertise, so it has a steep learning curve to better understand how to use it.

    It is a good technical choice for the enterprise to promote automation and integration, and switching from the traditional silo manual work to a new event-driven, fully automated workflow, allowing better visibility and resilience.

    The support comes in the form of an extensive library of how to articles and community input. For most situations this will give you plenty of information and resources to trouble shoot. Live support really then would need to default to the hosting provider who provides the cPanel for your use.

    cPanel

    The direct server management tool access provided by cPanel hosting accounts is far superior to any shared or "standard" web site hosting packaged offered by any of the numerous web host providers I have used and or evaluated over the 20+ years of my experience working in the internet industry.
