    I know a few good server admins however they do not use cpanel and I am sure they do not hae much knowledge on cpanel servers.

    I need to do server optimization . Should I let them do the job?

    As I myself am not a linux admin I do not know how much I should trust admins who do not know much about cpanel.

    Is Cpanel server very different? can they mess up because they do not know cpanel?

    I think you have answered your own question in your opening comments

    "they do not use cpanel and I am sure they do not have much knowledge on cpanel servers"

    For me that would be a blatant no they shouldn't even be considering it.

    In brief can you explain a little more what makes it so different ? Why cpanel servers are not normal?

    Hello,

    Could you provide some more information on the type of optimization you are seeking? For instance, are you experiencing issues with CPU or Memory as it relates to a specific service such as MySQL? We do provide a list of third-party system administration services that work with cPanel at:

    System Administration Services | cPanel Forums

    Thanks!

    I do not want to ask for those paid services. I have server admins who are very skilled but I am not asking them because they do not use any control panel so I wanted to know if cpanel is very different. I have high load average and server is slow so I need optimization .

    Thanks the server admins I know I am sure they are more than qualified but when I talked about cpanel he smiled and said he has heard about control panels but he has been doing this for years without control panel so he does things this way better. If I have assurance from you guys that things are not very different I can relax and let him do it for me.

    Operating Systems (using the minimal installation) that cPanel will run on:
    Installation Guide - System Requirements - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    cPanel installs all of the services it requires, itself:
    Aside from that, without knowing what optimizations you speak of that they might perform for you, there can be no assurances I don't think.

    There's no need to convince us of their skills, it's your server. If you've decided to hire them and things go wrong because they're not familiar with cPanel, you're going to need to hire someone else that is familiar with cPanel to fix you back up. If that's possible after the fact.
