    Hello to everyone.
    I must say this list has a very big variety of control panels for server, which is very good, but, does anyone have experiences with any of these?
    I must say, I have had some good experience with Cpanel, I do recommend it, has lots of recources, you can find Skins/Themes in multiple languages.
    I heard say very well of Direct Admin, but, one of my main turn down regarding it is the small language support they have. DA has a whole website for suporting users , which is really great! They made a very nice job on it, but it is only in english.
    Best regards

    Regarding experience, I have used many control panel. my vote goes to :

    HELM - http://www.webhostautomation.com/ - For Windows Control Panel : it made your hosting easy!!!

    CPanel / WHM - http://www.cpanel.net/ - A wonderful control panel for linux. You really enjoy it. Very easy and tricky.

    When it comes to selection of control panel from a newbie then its very important that he must look on following aspect:

    1. Levels of support a control panel offers both Free and Paid, plus how quick and effective their response is.
    2. User friendly and logical interface.
    3. FREE value-added services, like billing system, payment processing, scripting, DNS, Mail, DB managers etc.
    4. Now a days you will find couple of CP vendors offering FREE 3rd-party softwares like free mail, statistic servers etc. This will save you a handsome amount of money at the end.
    5. Only if you are a programmer, how much customization that CP support and how easily 3rd-party applications can be integrated?
    6. Few experience web host may not find it significant but it's very important for newbies(especially) that how easily control panel and its supported softwares can be installed and integrated together. I know few CP vendors charge for installation and configuration of their application.
    7. Last but not the least - Price, look for both one-time and monthly rental options. Try to find a cheap solution for your business.

    These could be few points a newbie MUST look before selecting any control panel because once you start using a CP its difficult to switch, believe me.


    Blessed.

    You missed a couple of panels!

    iBizPanel - http://www.myibizpanel.com/
    Alabanza's CP - http://www.alabanza.com/www/docs/101

    I use iBizPanel, H-sphere, cPanel/WHM and Alabanza's CP. All of them have their own unique features, but in order of my personal preference based on performance, reliability and usefulness. I would say,

    1. iBizPanel
    2. Alabanza's CP
    3. H-sphere
    4. cPanel/WHM

    I hate cPanel. I think it's a piece of crap comparitively, but they've done such a good job of branding it, customers ask for it by name. They don't know there's anything else. The folks at iBiz Vision don't advertise. Their business is selling dedicated servers but their control panel, the iBizPanel is way more powerful for automating every aspect of your hosting business than WHM.

    H-sphere is a very attractive and powerful control panel too. But, it's slow to respond and VERY COMPLICATED to use. It must constantly be rebooted daily. It takes a long time to learn where to find all of the many features and controls it has, and longer to learn how to use them. Their documentation is always outdated too.

    Alabanza's CP is very easy to use and the DSM is very powerful piece of work. The only thing wrong with it is that it's limited to selling packages the old fashioned way, where you have 1 website per hosting package. You can't sell multiple websites within a single hosting package. The cost for their dedicated servers is rather high too but then again, their service and reliability is a cut above the rest. My dedicated servers are very profitable and have 99.97% uptime.

    I prefer to use cpanel due to its features and advance settings in WHM

    I have reviewed many of the windows control panels, and I have found that Helm is by far the best. Helm 4 coming soon with tons of new features!

    HELM 4 really seems good You can try a demo from its site... it totally changed from its previous version.....

  16. #16
    sysconfig,

    It only seems good. Try it yourself and you'll throw it away. By the way, you are a Linux admin, how come you are testing Helm?

    I have only used demo and I feel it is a good product.. and that is the reason in my las post I have mentioned that I have checked *demo* version of it.

    I was also using HELM 3, I like this control panel, yes I am Linux Admin but it doesnt mean I cant check or use Windows related product..

    My area of interest and working profile is in linux but I would like to get knowledge from all the field wherever I can...

    Thanx

    and yes, if you want to know more about HELM and Windows web server then I would like you to contact Rubal in this forum... who seesm pretty comfortable with this area!!

    Considering the time it took to come out with Helm 4 beta, there shouldnt be that much of bugs. Sure they would work out the bugs but thats not a good sign for a public release of beta.

    I have been using Cpanel ever since I started my hosting company, but I started a free host on the side and tried VHCS and ZPanel, VHCS is alot better free-wise. My vote therefor goes to Cpanel and VHCS.

    I used cpanel and have not had many problems. The setup and maintenance is easy. I did have some pop3 issues after applying a patch one time but it was resolved quickly.

    Great list.. I used raq(are they even around still?), Ensim for about 1 1/2 years and cpanel for about 4 years.. I would say I like cpanel the most due to the way it runs and the great support you can get here and all kinds of other forums for it. Over the years you learn the panel inside and out and it really becomes like second nature.

    While cpanel has its 'oopsies' most of them are fixed pretty quickly by cpanel and you can always bet on someone from the community coming up with a solution before that even..

    Never heard of 90% of the cp's on that list, I guess the market is growing. I will spend some free time checking them out.
