    I agree with @easyhostmedia the CWP is good enough. For this reason it become more and more popular.

      I have used many different control panels for my company's webhosting servers and out of all of them, cPanel is by far the best and easiest control panel to use, in which your webhosting customers will love. A control panel such as CPanel is very important to have on your server if you want to get customers to signup for hosting from you and stay with you.

        cPanel is the most popular control panel for web hosting. It is easy to use. so many people pay for this just because it is easy to use.

          I agree that cPanel is the most popular control panel for web hosting (probably shared web hosting) but we can not truly be dependent on it. <snipped>

            Yes, because basically, cPanel is a handy tool that you need to ensure that your web hosting experience is as comfortable as it can be. Without it, managing a website will be stressful and difficult at best.

                It all comes to to personal preferences. Some people couldn’t do without cPanel and some people would be quite happy to try another. From a server administration point of view I find cPanel the easiest to work with but others may find DA, Plesk etc easier.

                  Well, it's up to the user actually. And yes, there are other alternative tools.

                    yes, but your comment implied that you need cpanel to manage a website stress free which i was just saying you dont need to have cPanel, infact if you know what you are doing you dont even need any control panel

                      CentminMod is a good free option, if you own the sites on a VPS
                      CyberPanel is also a good paid option for control panel

                        Yes, it really depends on how familiar you are with Linux and whether you prefer to use a GUI or command line. If you prefer GUI then cPanel is the best hands down and worth the cost, IMO.

                        I read that 65% of system administrations prefer to use a GUI over command line to manage a firewall. So even experienced system administrators prefer to use GUI (cPanel).

                        There are a lot of free and paid GUI panels but keep in mind a lot of them are not truly tried and tested or as secure as they should be. There were some major problems with some of the following control panels:
                        • CyberPanel
                        • VestaCP
                        • Webmin/Virtualmin
                        • CentoOS Web Panel
                        to name a few.

                        I believe many of the issues have now been fixed.

                        For free, ISPConfig is supposed to be the most secure, but it is nothing compared to paid cPanel software UI/UX and features wise.

                        For paid software, cPanel seems to be the safest tried and tested option.

                          All GUI (paid or unpaid) have issues and that also includes cPanel. It is a case of how these are fixed and how fast they are fixed.

                          with cPanel one of the issues is when they include items by default in updates that are active by default, so you as a host have no say rather than tell you of this feature and have it included inactive, so you can chose to offer it or enable it. If you suggest this in a support ticket then they report you to their supervisor as a difficult customer.

                            True. I have found cPanel to release security fixes much quicker compared to other control panels, at least compared to the free and open-source ones.

                            Yes, it is known they do that and some get annoyed by it. But that aside, cPanel wins security, features and UI/UX wise, at least for me anyway. Each to their own.

                              I find that cPanel is the most requested, and also the most stable.

                                I agree, this happens to us too. We although have had some direct admin requests because of the pricing increases.

                                  Yes, cPanel price changes have made a difference recently, but we offer Plesk as we find Plesk is the next best-developed control panel and has lots of extensions.

                                    You are aware Plesk and cPanel are owned by the same company

                                    On August 20, 2018 cPanel announced it had signed an agreement to be acquired by a group led by Oakley Capital (who also own Plesk and SolusVM).
