Web Host Control Panel Options

You have several options for web hosted control panels. The most popular and obvious choice is cPanel. cPanel is a good choice of control panels because of its balance between flexibility and ease of use. However, choice of control panel is a matter of personal preference and you need to find one that best suits your needs.

Other control panel options include:

  • Parallels Plesk, which is available for both Windows and Linux servers. Plesk is a fairly popular choice of control panels many people like it a lot. cPanel seems to be a little more flexible and easy to use, but there is little difference between the two.

  • Parallels Helm for Windows servers is a friendly, comfortable piece of software. It’s actually a favorite control panel for Windows.

  • DotNetPanel has become webSitePanel and is now an open-source Windows panel. Open source means it’s free, which can be a big plus, but it can be a little restrictive and hard to navigate. The fact that it's free makes up for some of those issues, and it is still being refined and developed. It will likely become a more usable product in the future.
