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

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.

Anyone hosting websites and email, this is the perfect product. Multi-tenancy is awesome as you can have reseller accounts that can control many regular accounts. Customers rarely need to access the command line, so that saves on support calls. We are more of an IT company, so we use it for other things related to IT. It you do not have the means to justify the cost of cPanel, I would look at other solutions.

cPanel is best suited for Linux-based hosting environments because of its compatibility and performance. cPanel can be operated and managed by a novice to expert level personnel.

I would recommend cPanel as it is a good tool for a medium-sized business. The licensing costs can be a bit high but you mostly get what you pay for. If you have a bit more of a large or complex web site/structure, there is a bit of a learning curve for administrators. Once you know what you're doing, it does what it does very well.

It's perfect for shared hosting solutions since it provides a very easy way to manage simple websites that are developed in HTML or PHP (even CMS like WordPress). If you're not a DevOps or an experienced IT professional, you'll be able to understand and set up your host as you need.

My cPanel Review

cPanel can be well suited for a non-technical person to manage their own server. However, the confusing and outdated UX would still make it difficult. Smaller shared hosting companies that want an easy way to offer a control panel to their customers could be well suited to use cPanel since it is one of the most well-known control panels.

Any website owner will find managing the website inside cPanel is a breeze. cPanel is the most used hosting management platform and it makes sense from a user perspective due to the ease of use. If you are looking for more control over the hosting server environment, then perhaps there would be no need for this solution. But a majority of users will find this solution to be very complete and easy to learn.

I only recommend cPanel hosting plans to any of my website development clients and colleagues. While the learning curve may be steep for some new users, the functional capabilities for managing website infrastructure are superior to anything else I have tried. My ease of use after just a few installations allows me to quickly and easily address many issues clients may experience.

Web hosting is definitely the strongest area that cPanel focuses on. They do this well and any aspects relating (FTP, MySQL, Emails, etc) are reliable. WHM itself is also very reliable and doesn't require much maintenance ensuring the customer experience is second to none.

cPanel is well suited for the novice, or intermediate computer user who needs to take on the task of web administration. The graphical interface is easy to use and many of the titles are self explanatory. There are also tons of videos to help you since it is a popular software.

cPanel is best for managing different domains its WHM master control panel is great creating sub cPanel accounts. It’s great for hosts or designers managing clients. It allows easy separation of data so manage individual accounts easier with separate logins. If you have a single domain is also a great option.

cPanel is is a great solution for many small or medium website design or hosting companies to provide to their end users an easy-to-use interface. If your customers are somewhat tech-savvy, cPanel is the way to go, especially if you don't have many accounts to manage, and especially if they are low-maintenance accounts or websites. If your end users are not tech-savvy, or they have complex website or email needs, then cPanel might not be the best solution.

cPanel is ideal for experienced web administrators who need an (overall) easy to use interface for a back end server work. Most of the modules are intuitive and independent so you can do specific tasks. The software is well documented so it can be readily learned by anyone who is willing to put in the time and effort. The learning curve can be steep though for anyone just jumping into using cPanel.

For companies looking for easy self-hosting alternatives and centralizing hosting services in one place, cPanel is a great option with wonderful support for other apps. For groups of users that aren't ready for a command-line-only interface and need to install other services and 3rd-party integrations on their servers, cPanel is probably not the best software to get this done.
