Interworx Control Panel

ABCVABCV Member, Provider

I've been doing some research on Interworx control panel, it looks pretty good and slightly more mature than DirectAdmin. Most of the posts here about Interworx is pre-cPanel price gate. I'm sure a lot has happened since so looking for genuine feedback and reviews please.

They're offering a free 3 month trial, so I could just test it for myself but what I really want is real and actual feedback from web hosts.

Has anyone successfully rolled this control panel out to paying customers?
How is the general feedback from customers who have migrated from cPanel to Interworx?

Many thanks!

    They used to have a one-time license option with an optional 6 month updates for $60, but it looks like they have followed all the other control panels and removed this now :neutral:

    the interworx road map looks good. I know HostDime also offer and support this control panel.

    From a small hoster perspective: a third/quarter of the price and it might get a serious consideration.

    Noticed that this may be owned by Liquid Web. So probably there is strong support from them.

    Yeah I’m pretty sure LW own it... so may not be a safe option.

    Liquid Web purchased it some time after the big cPanel price update.

    Ha! Liquidweb does not play with licensing, they just bought an entire control panel. Nice!

    They mention that prices are locked for 3 years. Which only means that a price increase may be very likely in 2023. They have no price increase protection like DirectAdmin for existing customers.

    I don’t believe any pricing structure.... regardless of ‘price promise’ prices will always rise.

    Prices will always increase in line with inflation - this is totally acceptable. What doesn't make sense is when companies capitalise on this and increase prices at a higher ratio than the original increase. However, I think DirectAdmin's price promise is quite firm and very public so pretty sure they will stick to their words like they have done so far.

    Domain registrars are known for this I think. For example, the registry price may go up for a particular domain TLD, like the recent 4% increase for the .uk and .co.uk ccTLD, rather than passing on this 4% rise some registrars have hiked the price by 20-30% stating registry price increase, one actually increased the price by 60%. That's not acceptable and it's not ethical either if the sole reason given is registry price increase.

    Their control panel UI/UX looks bad. DirectAdmin Evolution theme is better. I think directadmin is more user-friendly.

    I don't know when they last updated their website, but please, remove the testimonial from your own company which owns the company you're leaving a testimonial for, LiquidWeb.

  • cazrzcazrz Member

    IMHO, I think its a good move for them. This will cut their cost once they updated the panel. In the long run it will be less cost for them. I used this panel before and its just fine. I used it like sometime 10 years ago iirc. Right now I think selling to public will not be their focus. So a lot of work on the website and panel still needs to be done. Including the UI.

    It's pretty good. It has been battle tested by Nexcess over the years. Their clustering works pretty well if that's what you need. The default theme is god awful though lol

  • ExonHostExonHost Member, Provider

    Looks like they are trying to improve. https://www.interworx.com/roadmap-feature-request-feedback-form/

    Added few good feature and integration. Also updated theme.

    API/CLI look really good. GUI looks crap. Looks like they removed the owned licence?

    I think the same could be said for just about everything we all buy.
