WHM cPanel is the best web hosting management system

WHM cPanel is very secure, robust, and easy to use.

Pros

WHM cPanel has the most advanced features among all the webserver management system. The user interface is easy to use and requires no programming skills to manage the WHM system. With WHM cPanel I can easily set up domains, install websites, create backups, and migrate websites across the servers on a fly.

Cons

WHM cPanel is a powerful web hosting management system. But it is quite resourceful, if there had been light version of cPanel, it would been even more better.

Reasons for Choosing cPanel & WHM

WHM cPanel is easy to use and has a great support team than its other alternatives like Direct Admin, Hepsia Panel, Virtualmin, Ajenti, and Plesk.

Reasons for Switching to cPanel & WHM

WHM cPanel provided a complete set of features and easy to use interface.

Great product but bummed by the price hike.

Great product has all the features I need though just had a pricing structure increase.

Pros

Allows me to do everything I need to do with my hosting. I have played with plesk but I am more used to cpanel and WHM and know where everything is and there are so many features that allow me to resell hosting and make money from it! It is updated a lot which is great.

Cons

The main issue I had is this new pricing structure. It did increase my hosting bill quite a bit. Also every now and then I can't find something as there is soo much to it so I have to talk to my hosting company. So it can be a bit complicated until you learn it.

Reasons for Choosing cPanel & WHM

It has all the features I need and like the structure better than plesk.

Everything for accommodation at your fingertips

It is very easy to use, it is not required to be an advanced user in web management. Its interface has all its identified applications and many have help menu. The database is administered through the web interface, which means that advanced knowledge in the management of mysql is not required, one of the interesting functions is the mail, you can create email accounts with the domain of hosting, this It means that you can customize mail accounts according to the company or product. File management can be managed through ftp which makes the transfer faster. The platform has a lot of options that can be applied at the same time, I recommend it for small or medium companies that do not have a large IT department

Pros

Easy-to-use platform, which hosts several applications that do the work for the time to maintain and manage the hosting of your website, email accounts, database, php among others. It is an all in one for web hosting

Cons

One of the capabilities is more vulnerable to direct attacks, the location of all applications is on a single server, so it is easy to attack. This security breach makes it vulnerable to other options, more difficult to use but more secure

WHM for Best Server Management Experience

Hosting websites for customers and managing our VPS and Dedicated servers. We have secure and updated servers. Without cPanel & WHM we would have to manage most features with a Terminal.

Pros

EasyApache is the best software for me, because I can easily provision different extensions for different PHP versions and then select multiple versions of PHP for each domain. Then I like the fact that we can create feature lists and select which features a customer will have available for his cPanel. Each customer should have only the necessary features and access to different tools. Suspending accounts is really useful when customers don't pay their invoices for a long time and after many warnings. The best of all is the Security Center where I can configure everything, set security policies, Brute force protection and other restrictions. Basically I like that cPanel is always recommending the best and safest option for each feature there is available across cPanel & WHM.

Cons

We would prefer the old pricing which wasn't user based, but it's still affordable and very stable as a server software.

Good Value, User-Friendly Web Hosting Software

cPanel & WHM have enabled us to manage our VPS and WordPress websites easily, efficiently, and securely.

Pros

We are a small healthcare consulting firm that owns several WordPress websites with different domain names. We use cPanel and WHM to help us manage these websites on a virtual private server (VPS). When selecting a web hosting software package to use on our VPS, foremost on our list of requirements was ease of use, since none of our team members had much experience or expertise in web hosting. cPanel and WHM were the most straightforward choice because we were familiar with the graphical user interface (GUI) of cPanel (we had experience with it for about 2 years while our websites were on shared hosting) and the GUI was/is user friendly, even for novices. We set up our websites, each with a different cPanel for added security, on WHM easily and quickly - we didn't require any external assistance or training. Security was also another feature that we prioritized. WHM provides several ways to improve security of the server and therefore our websites, e.g. enabling "Configure Security Policy", disabling shell access, ModSecurity configuration, automatic updates.

Cons

Cost of the software. In late 2019, our VPS hosting provider increased our VPS cPanel license fee by $6 per month due to a change in the way cPanel license prices were calculated and how they were sold (changing to an account based license). This fee increase was a little annoying at the time, but we opted to continue using cPanel and WHM because we had been so accustomed to using the software and it had served us well for 10 years. We continue to use cPanel and WHM exclusively for web hosting on our VPS.
