Running CPanel and wondering what would be the best for web hosting?

deadline is more balanced over CFQ right so would allow for more I/O activities right

No, you're running linux. Sorry for the snark, but too many people seem to think that cPanel is the operating system. – EEAA Nov 9 '12 at 3:59

The CFQ algorithm is intended for process and resource sharing. It is also compatible with ionice. The deadline scheduler is geared towards providing priority to intensive processes.

This is easy for you to test. Try it in your environment both ways and see how it goes.
