What web hosting control panel you are using, share with us.
I am using webuzo, it is just like cPanel and it have amazing features.
The Second best choice is vestacp.
I mostly recommend cPanel, it's my favorite. I used 000webhost.com and namecheap.com much. And had great time with them. I'm here so i can experience a new type of control panel.
I use CPanel on my webhosting, Ajenti for VPS and Vesta for another. All are good but CPanel is the best, I don't recommend Vesta.
Had look at ajenti and vestacp but currently didnt have time to play around with it.


As for hosting cPanel is everywhere nowadays... make me forget the others. Perhaps should try other hosting that offer other than cPanel in future
Hmm, I mostly use cPanel Smile
It's not free but it's very good (price/quality) in my opinion and since some days I've some connections with cPanel employees. (Discounts Big Grin)

Secondly I find DirectAdmin also nice, simple and you can't mess it really up and has a lower cost than cPanel.

If I choose for free control panel is Kloxo. I don't know any good other (zPanel is vulnerable and Vesta doesn't seems to be that good).

I mostly use web panels that I can integrate with some automated billing software where I'm used to.
I'm using no control panel if that counts too because I'm managing all my servers and services over the console. Control panels might be great and everything but they are sometimes wasting a lot of resources for something you can easily do yourself. And don't forget the security holes in certain software like zPanel or Kloxo. Much too often people who owned a VPS on FreeVPS have been hacked through security holes in control panels.

If you are running much websites you should consider some panel or at least change your security a lot.
If you use no sort of panel the chance of getting hacked is slightly more. For example XSS (Cross-site Scripting).
If you are not familiar with XSS (Cross-site Scripting) read this Wikipedia article.

1) How is the panel actually going to help me other than stealing resources that I need for all the web pages? I have my stuff well secured and keep an eye open on every software I use.
2) How is a panel going to protect me from that? The panels mostly have more security issues (see zPanel, Kloxo and others) than the most web applications I ran on my servers.

Your reply is like; he does not use a panel, he is not secure. Having a panel is a bigger risk than having none. The less things are running on your server the smaller the attack surface is.

Well, sorry I wrote it i a hurry.

I mean, if you aren't experienced with a programming language you could have some security leaks and by using some control panels you could limit your RAM, disk limit etc to prevent to worst scenarios. Or some people with no knowledge could just install some software and get their server overloaded or let the software preform some XSS and running this on root isn't a good idea (if you are a newbie).
Well, that is much better to understand now.

My business is not to run a web host for people who do stuff at their own. I am doing managed hosting therefor the actual client has no access to the server. He only accesses his web applications and uploads files through them. Post his blog posts and so on.

I do all the work like updates, fixing stuff, installing new stuff on requests.
