    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.

    The answer depends on how many domains you plan to host on the VPS and whether you need separate control panel for each of your domain you host.

    I don't know why people suggest one CP over another without even knowing answer to these basic questions.

    HSphere is not a control panel for VPS. In fact, HSphere can't be installed on a VPS.

    OpenVZ, or in otherwords virtuozzo without the gui. Using hypervm with OpenVZ is one of the most popular and best, in my opinion, in the vps business.

    Good luck, and I believe the OP is talking about virtualization software and not control panels for the vps itself.

    What happened with your original post? you deleted it?

    Which version of HSphere will install on VPS? Last we tried, we were having problems with it. Furthermore, PSOFT is against installing HSphere on VPS and won't even offer support if HSphere is installed on VPS.

    Even if HSphere can be isntalled on a VPS, it will be dumb to use HSPhere as VPS Control Panel. Very dumb. We even have a dedicated server running HSPhere and HSphere only because of the resources it takes. HSphere is not a control panel for a VPS. Anybody who understands HSphere will laugh at the idea of installing HSphere as VPS CP.

    BTW, if you disagree, don't come to our LiveSupport and start calling me a**hole again like what you did last time.

    CPanel cannot control VPS's. It's a control panel which can be installed on a VPS. There is a difference. He is looking for a control panel which can control VPS's such as HSP and Virtuozzo. Cant H-sphere also do this with FreeVPS?

    * H-Sphere

    H-Sphere 3.1 works with VPS.

    Most hosting companies only have H-sSphere 2.4 - 2.5. 2.5 patch 6 is available, but I don't think that workswith VPS, but 3.1 does.

    LiveSupport? A**ehole??

    Must have me confused for somebody else!

    Dave,

    Here's somemore information for you...

    H-Sphere VPS Releases:

    H-Sphere VPS feature integrates virtual private server hosting into H-Sphere.

    Install H-Sphere VPS software on a separate physical box and add this box to your H-Sphere cluster. This software is then identified as a logical VPS server and run by a number of packages that may vary depending on your operating system.

    Packages are core VPS related Linux packages to be installed on a VPS host server. H-Sphere VPS installation also requires certain packages for integration with H-Sphere and some more OS-dependent packages.

    Supported operating systems have the following notation:

    RH73: RedHat 7.3
    RHEL3: Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 3
    CentOS 3.x
    White Box Enterprise Linux release 3
    RHEL4: Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 4
    CentOS 4.x
    White Box Enterprise Linux release 4
    TRUSTIX22: Trustix Secure Linux release 2.2 Sunchild

    Dave, I apologise for my behaviour, I was trippin'...

    But H-Sphere really does work with VPS accounts. Works perfectly. If you have root access to your server, you would need to do the above. Basically it may be fine, and you may wish to keep using CP+, but in the long term, it would be less expensive.
