    My standard answer because I am using it for the last 5 years I think, is Hosting Controller! Why? Because it is easy to use, pack with functions, tech guys willing to go beyond their duties to help with your problems. Also they exist on the market for a long time.

    I would recommend plesk all the way. I have been with plesk since 2.0 and they have stood up for all what and who they are. I also helped them by beta testing many features while working at Dialtone internet..... Plesk is #1 IMO.... Fast, Reliable, worth it.

    We have afew windows machines running Ensim, but they are very basic... YEs,, it is good but very basic. It also seems that many of our ensim clients liked it because it was very similar to their old cobalt control panel.

    When do you think Helm will come out with the new version to enable a more seamless billing process? In other words in the latest version of Helm, after a person uses the sign up forms generated from within Helm, their account info is emailed to them but they then have to log back into Helm in order to pay. I'm just wondering when they will have a "one-step" process built in.

    From what they've said over at the helm forums it will be near the end of the year.

    For me I prefer Hosting Controller, billing everything inside, can disable or enable as and when u need. But Shoey your recommendation of the free Nxpanel, quite useful. Very easy to use

    I also have to vote for HELM, very nice interface and easy to use/configure.

    HELM is good, but PLESK is more stable. Dont forget bankoi too which is a budget version of PLESK at about USD50 only.

    Wow, interested, Plesk 7 fof windows...

    I use Helm 3.1.16 in win 2003 and Plesk 7.0.2 in Virtuazzo.

    Must say: the Helm are very very fine for customers, but Plesk 7 also have standart XP simplicity.

    Maybe latter Helm 4 made with ASP.NET and ported to Mono on Linux, vill go on the top of alll

    To add nobodies yet provided any proof that Helm is less stable than Plesk, it seems to be simply a throwaway comment.

    We have run Helm for nearly 18 months and never had stability issues.

    Helm runs pretty smooth from what I've seen during testing. Infrastructurally Helm is very straight-forward. There's a few scheduled tasks for collecting bandwidth stats and so on but they don't run all the time and when they do, they use little resources. It uses MSDE as a database backend and that runs pretty lean too. The control panel itself has also been very stable so far.

    I have used the hostingcontroller for three years, but after i strated using the HELM, i do not have good marks for HC.

    HELM is reapidly becoming the standard.
