Which free panel is the best for "a website" in a dedicated managed by 3rd company?
I'm wondering get server management service of ServerWizards.com and use a free panel in my future (in the next days) dedicated server with hetzner.de. I ask them what free panel do they manage best and they said that maybe webmin.
What do you think about webmin? Is suitable for manage a dedicated which only have websites of my own?
What about VHCS?
Is still cpanel wa better option though the server is for websites of my own not a hosting/reseller company?
Free panels are a pain to manage - even for 3rd party companies specialiced in this. I would suggest you to take a cheaper commercial panel. Take a look into a lifetime directadmin licence, it's so easy to use and maybe you can find a licence for around 250 $ here on wht. Or 300 $ new. Then you can consider taking a 3rd party company. I have tried to use webmin with two management companies and each company did not provide good service to me.
As for cpanel <-> Directadmin: I have updated directadmin twice just clicking on "update directadmin" link. I do not know if updating cpanel is as easy like that Price is another point. You can even take an internal directadmin lifetime licence for around 80 $!
Are you reseller or a hosting provider? The point is that I read from many people that a server with some of your own websites doesn't need a panel, that's more a service for clients. In my case the unique clients I have are the advertisers.
By the way about which two management companies are you talking about?
I can't let you write that without complaining as I saw some people switching from commercial solutions to open source because of some (big) lacks in commercial solutions (like for example most of the commecial solution wants you to use a specific version of everything...).
