    There are many companies around in the world of internet which serve their customers with some amazing and awful piece of control panel. Some support linux while some support windows. This discussion here is about the linux based control panels. List down every control panel you know and lets discuss on its reliability.

    I have been through two control panels:-

    Cpanel/WHM - An amazing control panel so far. Easy and user friendly.
    HyperVM/Lxadmin/Kloxo - It is a very good control panel, although the main problems have occurred only after the recent hacks and other problems.

    You know any? put them in!

    Personally I am a fan of cPanel/WHM - Very easy to use. Great Hosting Script Integration.

    I have also used Plesk for both Windows & Linux (not a fan)

    I agree with Domainer , with both comments im not a fan of plesk.

    Im not sure what Godaddy use as their control panel but its nice and easy to use however its a shame about their poor hosting

    Godaddy hosting panel is the most toughest panel to use actually speaking. They don't even give you access to the databases. You have to demand it in order to get things done. I had a client I was working for on a godaddy host and well, all i can do is run the queries externally to work on the database with no clue on what really would be the outcome.

    Plesk is kind of okay. It would probably be the best available on windows hosting.

    I really depends what you need a control panel for. I tend to not like them in general, but for administering a server if you don't have command line experience then webmin is a good one. If you want to provide a control panel for end users thats a whole different story. I have never user zpanel. I would go with something commercial if you want to give contol panels to end users.

    Webmin is a most common free web-based control panel for OpenSolaris, Linux and other Unix-like systems, although recent versions can also be installed and run on Windows. You can configure many operating system internals, such as users, disk quotas, services, configuration files etc, as well as modify and control many open source apps, such as the Apache HTTP Server, PHP, MySQL etc.
    Meanwhile, Webmin can be expanded by installing modules, which can be custom made. Plus more, it lets you change passwords, set up mail filters, edit the Apache .htaccess files, log in to MySQL and manage your database tables and records, log into the server through SSH, and so on.
    Beside that, you can add Virtualmin on Webmin for managing multiple virtual hosts through a single interface, like Plesk or Cpanel. It supports the creation and management of Apache virtual hosts, BIND DNS domains, MySQL databases, and mailboxes and aliases with Sendmail or Postfix. It makes use of the existing Webmin modules for these servers, and so should work with any existing system configuration, rather than needing it’s own mail server, web server and so on.


    Please keep sharing and reading
    Have a nice day

    cPanel control panel is the most user friendly web hosting control panel. It's fast and allows lots of control and the Fantastico is great.

    cPanel/WHM is the best. But, if you are installing yourself, it has a hefty price tag on it. If your willing to swallow that, you should be fine and come out with a great product. Especially if you are selling hosting, it is a key feature!

    I have used CPanel/WHM and HyperVM/Kloxo never used Plesk. I think Cpanel is the best
