What is the best hosting control panel?
- views 1358
I used the ISP panel for 3 years, now I`m looking for a new hosting, but I learned they all work on the ISP Panel and even requires money for the license. I looked at other hosters and realized that cPanel/Directadmin is used very rarely. Parallel Plesk is used a little bit more often, but also rarely. Is ISP really the market leader? Experts, can you tell me whether it is worth it to move on to another control panel? Which one is the leader in hacking prevention? Can you give me some statistics?Solutions (1)In fact, we can`t deny that the ISPmanager panel is the leader among the control panels for hosting, although, of course, it is very common. But even with its widespread use there are problems. In my personal experience, we had repeated problems recovering backups on 4 versions of the panel. We can say that it divides the branch of the championship with the cPanel. If we compare them with each other, then cPanel is preferable for a novice user, according to our customers` feedback, because it is easy to learn. At the same time, it provides a fairly extensive functionality to the server administrator. When thinking about a higher level of security, don`t forget to update the panel to the latest stable version.Answers (3)No one will give you statistics, of course. ISPmanager is more user friendly, that`s why a lot of users use it. VestaCP is free of charge.ISP is the best and most commonly used panel, because it is a relatively cheap boxed product with regular updates.ISP manager is one of the most inexpensive commercial control panels, working directly "out of the box" with all the necessary functions, convenient both for the user and the administrator, that`s why many hosting companies use it. If you already use it and you are satisfied with everything - we recommend that you keep it.

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.
For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.
CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.
Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.
Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.
OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.
Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.
Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.
Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.
DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.
Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.
ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.
The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.
Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
