I'm still with cPanel after the crazy price hike tier system.

My problem is that they should allow the $15 single domain license on a dedicated. I can use the add-on domains feature to add my 3 smaller sites. Right now I have to pay $45 per month for a license that allows up to 500 accounts. The restriction and license progression makes no sense.

Plesk con:

Owned by the group that owns cPanel. I suspect Plesk will follow in the footsteps of cPanel, or support/updates will take a back seat to force people to cPanel.
