No one sole person can say which control panel is better.

Personally my two favourites are H-Sphere and cPanel. Although I'll be looking a lot of HostGUI when it is released if it is released.

I cannot say one is better over another, nor can you or another person. It is all oppinion. It's up to you and it is your choice.
Search the forums, you'll find a very MIXED view on this very topic.

I like Cpanel as a control panel better than plesk. I don't like how WHM organizes the domains. Too bad I couldn't run Plesk to manage the domains and cpanel for my clients to change stuff

The majority of people here seem to like cPanel and Plesk. There are also a lot liking Ensim though.

Since RackShack owns WebHostingTalk, it is very understandable that there are a lot of Plesk and Ensim lovers here. Plus since cPanel is such an "old" control panel in the fact it has been around a long time, and by no means old in the way it is bad & needs updating.

Although it seems whenever a debate on this comes out, a lot go for cPanel while a lot of others go for Ensim. It seems PlesK is getting less and less - although I presume that mainly since PlesK only recently recommenced its partnership with RS.


You will find though a lot of people here like cPanel, plus the majority of hosts mulling around here also use cPanel even if they claim their prefer PlesK or Ensim - yet for some reason the majority actually seem to use cPanel.

Maybe try a search if you are looking for recommendations. It's a great tool.

i think it really depends on what platform you use. i use cpanel on linux and h-sphere on windows. they are both great. also i like Ensim being more secure...

I don't have any experience with Webmin (nor did I vote for it), but from what I know or heard Webmin is free & is very hard to use. Apparently I read here it is more for managing the server and not that good for hosting and offering it to clients- but remember, I don't have experience but I read that here on these very forums.

Maybe try using the Search tool. It has a wonder of mysterious posts that could help you!

hence we should write a guide "Webmin for dummies ...."

Webmin is one of the easiest ones around. I feel the reason why people are afraid of it is because they see features they have never saw before. So they get the feeling, if it aint broke don't fix it. If an administrator sets up webmin properly and makes an appropriate skin for it, it can be a great control panel

I think all the extras you get with cPanel / WHM make it easily the best.

Yeah. cPanel has a lot of nice features, and also in the right skin can be really great to use. It's a shame that the skins that come free with cPanel/WHM are not soo good - all my clients are wanting a theme like HostRocket's because it is a great theme, yet at first they did not realise that even HostRocket uses cPanel only they paid mega-bucks for a great theme.

I have never tried WebMin but looked at the screenshots. They look somewhat nice, but if you search on this forum you'd find a lot of people complaining how hard it is. True probably if an admin made a great skin for it and set it up properly it'd be a great control panel - but I've also read here that WebMin is mainly for managing the server and isn't like cPanel for your clients. True or false? (I'm guessing WebMin for the admin like WHM and UserMin for the clients like cPanel - true?)


But there are a lot of other free contorl panels out there. There are a lot of nice ones too. I know a very nice one which I used to use ages back and loved it. It was easy and great. web://cp was its name. If you're really interested CyberSol I can get the URL or you can again use the Search feature made for the forums.
