    Since the Alabanza thing I have restarted my hunt for the perfect CP/DSM that could content with Alabanza'a. I saw a post that mentioned H-Sphere (http://www.psoft.net) so I went to check it out.

    I read over their features and thought hey, they have it all. Auto billing, auto account setup, almost all the features of the Ala DSM/CP other than stuff like resseller integration. All of this and their listed price was $0.50 per user or unlimited server usage for $500 I think. Thats a deal if you ask me.

    SO I proceeded to take a look at the demo. I got some server errors but it was from people messing with the demo. As far as the look and feel goes I gave it an A+. It is really easy to navigate and looks great on both the users end and admin end. Ala's looked good on the users end but the DSM was terrible.

    I thought I had found my CP until I noticed. The script was creating a sub domain like myname.hd.psoft.net and then if you wanted a domain name you just pointed it there. But the FTP was still to the sub domain. So I am not sure, correct me if I am wrong, but the way I though Ala's CP worked was to actually tell the server to set up so and so directory on the server and give it certain rights and an IP. With H-Sphere it is basically using a script to set up a virtual sub domain (not physical) and allow you to upload to that and point a domain at it.

    With it's easy navigation and auto billing it was so close but no cigar. With the way it works if the main script broke down I think all the accounts would stop working. I may be wrong. It seems like it is more suited to offer free hosting to people even though the billing thing is there.

    Oh well I was so disapointed I had to tell someone so my rant is over

    Off to find another solution.

    The above thread talks about Felix's work on building his own control panel. I don't know how far along it is but maybe he can give you some advice.

    Yes thank you. I will be really interested in hearing your thoughts after using it. If it can be set up to run the way I want (sort of described above) I will be all over it

    I look forward to hearing the results.
