    Would you like to know the easiest to admin or the cheapest? Control panels can get quite expensive.

    Personally, if I were you I and was a newbie to dedicated servers, I would have purchased a server with a control panel installed. Oh well, maybe next time. For now, it is time to help you find a control panel.

    I will assume you are on a Linux box:
    CPanel - Probably the most known CP, it is known to be the best control panel to offer your clients, and is very flexible. However, it is also the most expensive.
    Plesk - A widely known CP, Plesk is very powerful and allows for much GUI administration of your server. Some clients may not find the Plesk CP very friendly to use. Clients who previously hosted with CPanel may not find Plesk user-friendly.
    Ensim - From what I know, it lacks many of the features that CPanel and Plesk offer. It may not be the best CP to offer to your clients. The Ensim CP I know the least about.

    I'm sure there are other CP's out there, but I do not know of them. I hope I could be of some assistance. I am probably stating something incorrectly in one of these reviews, but I did my best .

    Also, those CP's were listed from most expensive to least expensive.

    From my experience, I find CPanel to be very nice because of its functionality and ease of use. I can't wait for HostGUI to come out, it looks great.

    OK

    What do you think is the best for just managing the server. I don't think i will resel space. Also do they all have the same features? And what one is the easiest to configure and set up dns?
