Control Panel Reviews Many folks who need web hosting these days want the simplest method for managing servers. To many, it is expected that graphical-user-interfaces (GUIs) are provided along with hosting. The good news is that many of the best hosts offer top-rated control panels in their plans.Hosting control panels are web-based interfaces allowing administrators and/or users to manage various server services from the comfort of a web browser.Below we take a quick look at some of the most popular options that are available and actively maintained. 11 of these projects are open-source and six are proprietary software.Common Control Panel FeaturesIn general, most control panels implement a common set of features. While most will implement some subset of these, there are a few that include them all.Web hosting control panel software may provide access to:
  • Domain name system management (web domains, mail domains, etc.)
  • Email system management (email addresses, email quotas, spam prevention, etc.)
  • FTP management (user accounts, password management, file system quotas)
  • Web-based file system access
  • SSH user/key management
  • Database management (MySQL, PostgreQSL, and sometimes other database systems)
  • Backup management
  • Logfile access and reporting
  • Plugin system for configuring additional services and installing apps (e.g., WordPress)
As is with virtually any other product market, there are upgrades and premium versions to be had in web panels. The top enterprise-grade panel features are up next!Enterprise Control Panel FeaturesSome projects also have enterprise features like:
  • Manage multiple servers from one control panel interface
  • (For Hosts) Allow multiple customers to run the control panel software in parallel on a server
  • Service monitoring and alerting
  • A ticketing system for customers
  • IPv6 support
These options are fantastic for large-scale, growing businesses and hosters.Control Panel Features MatrixWe all know it is easier to see things visually, so we put together a nice table for you to compare all of the control panels and their features quickly.

These panels’ features are varied. Some panels may be best suited for shared hosting customers, while others are very popular among cloud hosting users. Still, whether you’re running your site on dedicated servers, a VPS, or a shared hosting environment, the usefulness of being able to manage your files, email, apps, et cetera from one intuitive interface is invaluable.
