Cpanel is easy and popular, others are also good but if I were you I would have chosen cpanel
cPanel is definitely designed for beginners. I started on it myself and still am somewhat attached to it.
plesk customer service is poor :), my first hosting script and regret abt it :)
out of two cpanel stands as winner.
A client of mine uses Plesk,hate every time I have to login into it,so you can imagine which of the two I preffer
Plesk is good, but personally i feel cPanel is the best web hosting control panel ever designed, i found every feature excellent and not one lacking in anyway.
ey cPanel, throw a poll in there
cPanel was the first control panel. All others came after. That's why cPanel is the best. They've had more time to improve it. cPanel started when the hosting business was basically just starting. Since then, it's been built upon to stay up to standard with the industry. They also provide good support.
The hosting company that I use offers both cPanel and Plesk. They say that 70% of people choose cPanel.
