In this blog we will try to help you out on how to choose the right one for your website.
Each hosting package comes with a set of controls. We cannot choose which one is available and buy it right away. It is best to choose based on what kind of host we need and what kind of host meets the needs of our website.
Users of the IT platform select it based on their tastes. The same is true for control panel hosting. There are different tastes some of choose based on their design and some based on the different services they provide.
But often our choices are made based on our personal needs.
If you want direct answers about Plesk and cPanel, it can be difficult to distinguish fact from opinion. The truth is that the two are very similar to each other, the applications are almost the same. Both work wonders and meet customers needs.
Both of these control panels allow you to configure your website, view statistics, configure emails, view files you have uploaded to the server, and more. The main difference is how the two are organized. The creators of cPanel and Plesk panel have dealt with different ways of organizing the services they provide.
Perhaps the look of the two does not seem to matter, but this is one of the first details that users notice.
Plesk is usually known for clarity and more attractive interface and I personally agree with that, but cPanel is more popular, and since users are somehow familiar with it, they will always argue that cPanel’s interface is more attractive.
Keep in mind that cPanel is more widespread, and cPanel also happens to be modified and disguised in a variety of ways by users who want a different view of their panel.
For many users, cPanel is cheaper than Plesk Panel.
cPanel can cost up to 425 € per year on a Dedicated Host, which means around 35 € per month.
Plesk, for a similar plan as the one mentioned above, costs around € 40 per month.

cPanel only runs on CentOs, RedHat, Linux, and cannot run on Windows.
Plesk on the other hand, doesn’t work on Linux but it does on Windows.
It is clear that Plesk is more convenient, more flexible, but this is not the case since most people use cPanel.
cPanel comes with a dedicated WHM (Web Host Manager) control panel, which can only be viewed by users who have purchased VPS (Virtual Private Server), in other words those who have Shared Hosting do not have this opportunity. In this case, cPanel is for web site control, and WHM is for cPanel control.
Plesk on the other hand has only one login system for logging in, it’s similar to cPanel but the options they both offer differ from one another.
One of the nightmares of any web developer is probably the transfer of a website from one host to another, or from cPanel to Plesk (Which is almost impossible).
So if you choose cPanel or Plesk Panel once you do, don’t change them, migrating web pages between them is not impossible but you may have to pay for a ‘Maestro’ or if you are not technically capable various problems arise.
Both Plesk and cPanel are both fast, secure and stable. If you are new to this profession and do not know enough about hosting, choose a Web Host that offers tutorials and demos about cPanel and Plesk.
For existing users, the biggest problem they would never want to encounter is the migration from cPanel to Plesk or vice versa. If you are already in either of these two control panels, skip all options to change it, only if necessary. Not only will you be forced to learn a different kind of panel control, but the problems that arise when migrating between the two can be a real nightmare.
