Dear All,

Most of the users are looking for low end machines and the next thing they need, is a way to manage their VMs. Personally i feel you cant beat CLI, but new users often need a simple way to manage ordinary tasks.

I am presenting the 5 most widely used and solid Control Panels for VPS management.

A. VestaCP : This is simply the best i have used. I personally prefer Vesta over other panels. Vesta has once click installation and has an awesome Mordern UI with all that you need :

  • Web Server
  • DNS server
  • Database Server
  • Mail Server
  • FTP Server
  • Nginx out of the box
  • SSL certificates & SNI
  • Wildcard support
  • Configuration Templates
  • DKIM support
  • Fast Backups
  • Easy update manager
  • System Monitoring
  • AntiSpam / Antivirus
  • WHMCS billing support

B. Froxlor : This is another control panel with a Clean UI. Froxlor includes several goodies like Web FTP , Advanced SSL etc.

C. Ajenti : This is a beautiful , open source, web-based control panel that can be used for a large variety of server management tasks. It can install packages and run commands, and you can view basic server information such as RAM in use, free disk space, etc.

D. WebMin : This is a tested and very reliable control panel. Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing etc.

E. CentOS Web Panel ( CWP ) : CWP is a new control panel for centos based servers. I have found it to be relatively slow compares to other panels. But its reliable and it works.

The CWP Includes :

  • Apache Web Server (Mod Security + OWASP rules optional)
  • PHP 5.4 (suPHP, SuExec + PHP version switcher)
  • MySQL + phpMyAdmin
  • Postfix + Dovecot + roundcube webmail (Antivirus, Spamassassin optional)
  • CSF Firewall
  • File System Lock (no more website hacking, all your files are locked from changes)
  • Backups (optional)
  • AutoFixer for server

EDIT : Another worthy mention is KloxoMR. Mustafa has invested a huge effort in Kloxo and the new products seems reliable and patched. This is special edition (fork) of Kloxo with many features not existing on Kloxo official release (6.1.12+). This fork named as Kloxo-MR (meaning 'Kloxo fork by Mustafa Ramadhan')
