My server is pre-loaded with cpanel for a slight additional charge.. would it be worth it to get h-sphere or would it be better to keep cpanel and deal with managing multiple servers the old fashioned way.. im not sure how cpanel and h-sphere stack up, if it doesnt come standard and free i havent tried it.. lol
Cpanel isn't free; it is billed by recurring monthly fee.
H-sphere, on the other hand, is only a one time fee of $4.5 (maybe even cheaper if you get from a reseller). If you buy it seperate, you can also bring the license everywhere you go. (compared to being tied in with your server provider with cpanel).
Check out the web site and browse the forum for more information on both products. I personally think h-sphere is a better deal, but you need to research for yourself to find out.
PSA 5.0 when released has a multiple server management system...

Actually, it should not be a big deal handling servers indivdually. We have seen clients with over 30 servers running it smoothly.
H-sphere, Plesk etc. are good and I would recommend it.
Cpanel has a huge preference over the others from the end users point of view which is the reason many companies use cpanel....
Clustering is not the most important things to take a look at in my opinion.
Have a great day
