Default What hosting control panels are important?

If you were looking for hosting, or if you are going to be starting up a new hosting service, and were reading a review on hosting control panels, what ones would you like to see reviewed and why? Yea, there are a few obvious ones, but go ahead and mention them. Also, there are a bunch of more obscure ones. I'd like to hear your opinions on those as well. I'd like to create a good resource that people can point to, maybe this discussion will be that.

I've used ensim, cpanel, and my other host pair.com has their own control panel. I like cpanel and would reccomend it because it has a lot of options.

Default Plesk

Another pretty popular control panel is Plesk http://www.plesk.com/, and I presume that some of you have used it before. If not, at lease you have heard about it. I heard both positive and negative comments about Plesk, but I would say that it's about the same quality/popularity as Ensin. One nice thing about Plesk is that you can manage one domain for free; it's like a trial edition. The latest version 6.x supports Tomcat, which is another reason that I like about Plesk.

Default DirectAdmin

We use exclusively DirectAdmin control panel.

It is MUCH more stable and easier to use than any other we have dealt with. Updates and support can not be beat anywhere in the industry!

Because of the level of support they offer, the high value with low cost and their dedication to continually improving the panel, it is the ONLY one we offer as a pre-installed and supported option on dedicated servers and the ONLY one we offer on our shared hosting servers.

If you want to see some discussions about DirectAdmin as well as my feelings, check out these threads on WHT forums:

http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...ht=DirectAdmin

http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...ht=DirectAdmin

There have been some major updates and feature additions since those two threads were active so I recommend visiting DirectAdmin's version history page here:

http://www.directadmin.com/versions.php

Version 1.2 just came out a couple of days ago and includes many features that former cPanel users had requested.

I hope this helps anyone in their consideration of panels. DirectAdmin is very quickly becoming the panel of choice for many companies including those who were previously cPanel supporters!

Regards!

Default Control Panels?

As a host, we prefer cPanel, our clients have far less issues with cPanel than with Plesk of Ensim, which is the bottom line for our support team.

Some of the proprietary panels are nice, but when a client is looking to switch to a new host the learning curve can be steep, and sometimes some of the data can be difficult to migrate to the new host.

Just my two cents.

Cpanel, from the controlpanels i have used seems to be the best.
All out hosted clients use it, and agree that it is easy in layout and easy to navigate.

if you go to http://cpanel.net/ you can see a demo.

I set up a Mandrake 9.2 server with Plesk 6 a few weeks ago. It went pretty smooth. Cpanel is way too expensive to use unless you lease through EV1-Server or another giant company. We went with Plesk because it was affordable and reasonably easy to use. We decided against Ensim because it only runs on redhat.
