    HSP??
    Any control panel can be used on VPS, save you have ample resources, but for entry level VPS DA/cpplus are very fine as well as low priced.

    The best control panels are based on preference, but here they are as follows:

    Webmin- More for the experienced unix user who wants a simple no thrills control panel.

    cPanel- More for the average user, but gives power users plenty of control and flexibility.

    Plesk - An alternative for novice users. This should be for anyone not interested in learning anything about VPS internal functions.

    Sincerely,

    I disagree - cPanel uses alot of resources even on a full dedicated server, and on a entry level VPS server it will consume an even higher percentage. If you are not concerned about resource usage cPanel is a good control panel.

    cPanel is one of the best Control Panels. But there is DirectAdmin too. It's not bad one.

    Hey guys, I don't think WebCobra was taking about a control panel to manage a server like you would in a dedicated, but more about managing a bunch of VPSes, like you could do with the panels I know:

    - Virtuozzo (and it's power panel)
    - HSP
    - dtc-xen (this one is from us and is open source)

    I don't know any other VPS control panel that aims at commercial VPS hosting. I would be pleased to discover some more.

    Last thing: I think that the "panel" from Xen Source called XenEnterprise is a joke. There is not even the possibility to reboot a VPS for a customer, and I'm not even talking about billing, renewal, etc. All it does, you can do it on the shell, so it makes me think it's for newbies only that are scared of ssh. What did they think about when they wrote it???

    Out of the two I would be inclined to choose Plesk due to reliability and scalability but I guess other opinions may differ. The Plesk 8 interface is much better than the current cPanel interface and Plesk doesn't have the pesky (some even show stopper) bugs that cPanel is plagued with. If I could get any control panel, it would be DirectAdmin. Ease of use, flexibility, scalability, simplicity, performance, security - this one has everything.

    Hey, you guys, did you read me??? Talking about Plesk or cPanel is IMHO off topic on this thread...

    Pardon?

    Did I enter the wrong early childhood classroom here or is this the thread on VPS control panels?

    The HSPcomplete control panel only has one login for the entire VPS account so you can't login at a per domain basis so if you resell or something that may not be good. If you use Virtuozzo, Plesk is best due to how it is tightly integrated into the Virtuozzo Powerpanel, etc. cPanel sells more but lacks some of those "extra's". Overall I would say cPanel but for a nice clean interface with integration already done I would say Plesk.

    I am not sure what integration qualities does plesk and virtuozzo have? Other then just plesk can be installed through virtuozzo? Is it any other way integrated with virtuozzo to make life of a general user easy?

    In the VZPP you have somethings related to Plesk. Not so much needed but for a cPanel user, etc it would be nice to not have it. Overall Plesk is made to work good with Virtuozzo but in all reality not a big difference if you like something other then Plesk.
