Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Really there aren't many options. There is a free one that I haven't used but from what I hear is that it is very limited on functionality. I also have tried Plesk, never bought but tried it. It seemed easier in a few things but also seemed more simplistic and I like my workflow with cPanel better and it works well with litespeed server.

A long time ago we used HSphere, but development stopped when they were acquired. We had to find something else. We tried Plesk, but it was a nightmare. When we looked we wanted something kind of fault tolerant. cPanel is so easy to move and backup, if a server does go down, we can have the customer back online in minutes.

I have used cPanel for a long time along with a few other hosting management platforms. cPanel from a feature and speed standpoint outranks the competition.

My cPanel Review

cPanel is my least favorite option compared to others like Plesk and custom solutions developed by other companies such as Kinsta. However, my preference is towards serverless website builds but when a traditional server is required I prefer to directly manage it or use options other then cPanel that I've had a better experience with.

cPanel offers a more friendly to beginners experience compared to Ajenti. The latter is feature rich but you will need more technical know how to navigate. cPanel is more accessible and universal and for those reasons a great solution for my business needs. cPanel works best with shared or VPS hosting. Ajenti seemed to be a great solution for VPS management.

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.

Easy to use and support

cPanel ease of use has by far surpassed other control panels such as Plesk and Webmin. It’s easy to understand. Easy to implement. And always functions correctly. Software support is great and they are always prompt in acknowledging and issues. Also online documentation is always vast and available via different outlets.

cPanel is more user-friendly than many third-party website hosting interfaces, including GoDaddy, Bluehost, and 1&1 Host. cPanel is the industry standard, and integrates well with common website software and third-party modules. Managing your website is effortless in cPanel, compared to GoDaddy's proprietary interface. GoDaddy changes its interface every few months, whereas cPanel has kept the same industry standard interface for over a decade.

The typical alternative to cPanel when purchasing a hosting control panel option is Plesk. I have very little experience with Plesk, but there are different versions of it available depending on the features you need. The Webhost Edition, which seems to be most comparable to cPanel, is priced higher than cPanel is. I've been using cPanel for at least eight years and I've never seen a reason to move to a competing product.

cPanel has a better interface than Webmin in my opinion, better themes, and better out-of-the-box support for other systems/platforms for hosting and integrations. It is also easier to create and control Apache configurations, and there is a wider selection of 3rd-party integrations for cPanel that can be quite necessary for companies in later stages.
