    The title says it all.

    I'm really feeling like i want to switch over now to cpanel & whm.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Well Cpanel is way better. Me and my friend had major issues with Plesk. Cpanel is simple and brilliant and everybody uses it. You can get more sales with it too. :)

    I was almost forced to move to Plesk...

    I have to make a server upgrade because 2 of my boxes are 7 years old and way out dated. My host only uses Plesk now. I forced myself to learn it and practice with it prior to the migration and I have to say it has 350 times less options. It looks to me like with Plesk you would be forced to make 10 times more command line inputs in an average month. Things that are a check and click with WHM are 30 lines of code with Plesk. Simply it's much less powerful.

    After begging and pleading, my host let me run CPanel on my new boxes.

    CPanel puts their time into their product. Plesk puts their time into marketing and saying how great they are.

    Everybody here occasionally bitches about how CPanel has a minor bug or a security issue comes up, but honestly when has Cpanel not stepped up to the plate?

    BTW- go check out the Plesk message board:

    1. It is the most user unfriendly P-O-S I have ever seen.
    2. The staff never answer questions or take part in the community.
    3. As soon as I contemplatted a switch, I felt all alone.
    4. Minor things on Cpanel like using an email to text form or upgrading Apache are a big deal on Plesk.

    I am damn glad I got to stick with CPanel.

    Thanks so much pjman for your comments.

    I know the plesk forum board is the worst thing I have ever seen!
