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.

The worst thing about Plesk is the worthless migration tool to go from cPanel to Plesk.

Plesk should just stop providing it since all it does is provide false hope.

After so many errors, I threw my hands up and ran back to cPanel regardless of cost.
