I'm not sure what limitations you're referring to, but if you mean
things like limits on the number of messages per hour, those are all
imposed by the hosting provider.

If you haven't seen our FAQ on cPanel Mailman, it's at

The main issue is cPanel has their own patches. The most well known of
these is a patch to allow the same list name in two different virtual
domains, but this works by just appending the domain to the listname
for everything except the list email addresses which means the
listname for purposes of the web interface is listname_domain, and it
would be the same for command line tools if the command line tools
even work.

They have other patches as well which may be buggy, and we can't help
with these bugs. There has been at least one such issue in the past
