Top 8 Web Hosting Control Panels

Top 8 Web Hosting Control Panels

A Web hosting control panel is a web-based interface that enables users to manage hosted services in a single location. Control panels can manage email account configuration, databases, FTP users' accounts, monitor webspace and bandwidth consumed, provide file management functionality, create backups, create subdomains and much more.

Web hosting control panels offer an attractive solution to developers and designers that host multiple web sites on virtual private servers and dedicated servers. This type of server management software simplifies the process of managing servers. By offering an easy to user interface, the control panels avoid the need to have expert knowledge of server administration.

Two of the most popular control panels are Plesk and cPanel. These are web-based graphical control panels that allow you to easily and intuitively administer websites, DNS, e-mail accounts, SSL certificates and databases. However, they are both proprietary software. Hosting providers will charge a monthly fee for these control panels to be installed on a server. Fortunately, there is a wide range of open source software available to download at no cost that offers a real alternative to these proprietary solutions.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 8 high quality web hosting control panels tools that let users take full control of a web hosting account. We give our highest recommendations to Virtualmin, ISPConfig, and Kloxo.

Now, let's explore the 8 web hosting control panels at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot of the software in action, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
