    Need comments on Webmin/Virtualmin

    I am going to buy an unmanaged dedicated server from Serverbeach and am considering using a free control panel. I prefer to use webmin/virtualmin although I don't have much experience of using it.

    I heard quite a few people say webmin/virtualmin is slow, but I am not sure what they mean by slow. Is webmin/virtualmin slow or it causes the server to be slow?

    Anyone has any comments on webmin/virtualmin other than slow?

    I appreciate your reply.

    Tony

    I use webmin for a couple of bits, but not for much. I haven't found it particularly slow compared to most panels, but then I'm not a heavy user.

    If you are planning to only host your own websites on this server, then Webmin/Virtualmin will work fine. If you're planning to host customers on this server, then I'd strongly recommend getting a different panel. Webmin doesn't have many features, isn't user-friendly and is ugly

    It may be worth looking at a hosting control panel, Plesk/CPanel/LXAdmin etc. I use webmin for DNS management as I find it easier than any of the other control panels for DNS Only stuff, but for multiple domain stuff where you're handling DNS/Mail/Web I'd definately go for a hosting control panel
