    On Linux most of them work fine, cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin. On Windows I have seen Plesk only, being offered.

    Okay. I was told about a year ago that cpanel and Virtuozzo could be working better together?

    I am using few cPanel + OpenVZ/Virtuozzo setup, all doing fine, no problems. But yes for a cPanel VPS you should have at least 256Mb guaranteed RAM (more RAM better performance).

    Both of cPanel and Plesk are RAM eater.

    That's why I always think it's meaningless to get a 256- VPS if the user want a cPanel/Plesk installed. 256- VPS may be only meaningful for Linux Pros.

    I recommend the cPanel, but if you are not fussy & preffer to do everything by hand you can use the webmin control panel.

    For my money we use Dot Net Panel on a Windows x64 with Virtuozzo. Works a treat but for some reason the VPS need at least 384MB RAM for DNP to function properly.

    i also recommend Cpanel. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Cpanel and Plesk are excellent choices, however both consume resources. If considering try to target something with at least 512ram, that way it gives you an extra buffer allowing other resoruces/services to run without crashing the vps server/control panel

    I don't know about cPanel but, Plesk is not a RAM eater.

    I have a 256 MB VPS with Plesk and it works like a charm. No slow downs and nothing. I host on it a very active website with as many as 65 concurrent users sometimes - 35 - 45 average.

    Infact, as me many members here will say that Plesk has a small footprint and uses much less resources as compared to cPanel.

    Plesk eats alot of RAM allright, I turned it off and configured manually, you can see demos of them on their homepages

    Could you kindly elaborate?

    Demos of Plesk on their homepages are indeed very slow but, that has nothing to do with their actual performance on your VPS.

    With Plesk it all depends on how many SpamD processes your running ect... and the amount of domains ihave seen plesk do great thing on 256meg dedicated ram but only it it was burstable to more than 768meg

    The demo on the Plesk homepage is nothing compared to the actual performance, that demo is there to give you an idea of the features, not the speed.

    My Plesk loads a hell of a lot faster than that demo, infact it loads faster to me than cPanel ever did...

    Plesk runs good on Virtuozzo/OpenVZ. It's built by the same people. It also runs smoothly at 256MB of ram. As for cPanel, it works great, but only when you run atleast 512MB on the VE. Anything lower than that, you're going to run into problems I find.
