I'm looking for a control panel to control a VPS (a high end one. don't worry about if the control panel is a resource hog). I have already done a bunch of research on control panels, but I just want to make sure I haven't missed any. The ones I like so far are:

  • Webmin (great control panel, but I'd like a software that is better suited to setting up websites for clients)
  • ISPConfig (right now I'm testing it, but it looks great so far)

Ones I don't like:

  • Kloxo (I'm using Ubuntu. Kloxo does not support Ubuntu)
  • DTC
  • web://cp
  • OpenPanel (I love the interface, but it just doesn't have the variety of features that others have)
  • RavenCore (Seems that most of their site is down, so I don't exactly want to trust my server to a defunct project)
  • VHCS and IspCP (I don't like either, personally)
  • EHCP (seemed way too cluttered)
  • Virtualmin

Thanks everyone!

If you like Webmin, have you considered Virtualmin GPL? You can upgrade it to Virtualmin Pro if you want more features and support.

Duh! I forgot about that one! I'll try it as soon as I finish trying out ISPConfig. Thanks! – Sam Bloomberg Apr 30 '11 at 1:18
Nevermind. I didn't really like it. – Sam Bloomberg Apr 30 '11 at 2:33
@Sam: LOL. So you like Webmin, but not Virtualmin. Curious what you didn't like about Virtualmin? – tegbains Apr 30 '11 at 3:05
I just feel like it is less organized... I don't really know what I didn't like. I'm kind of OCD about interfaces and such. It has to be PERFECT or else I can't stand it. – Sam Bloomberg Apr 30 '11 at 3:30
@Sam: We use Webmin GPL & Pro and I spent a few days tweaking the templates. Once the templates were set, I don't play with the settings too often. Also, some of my clients use Webmin, so the interface feels familiar to them. As far as Look & Feel, I haven't found any free ones that felt right AND didn't goober up the config files for the underlying server parts (aside from Virtualmin). – tegbains Apr 30 '11 at 7:18

I think those on your list are pretty much it. One left out is ZPanel

Probably better as a comment. (You will be able to comment at 50 Rep). – vgoff Nov 22 '12 at 18:08
Considering that the question was not too good to begin with, I'd say this is a valid answer, and not a comment. – Adrian Heine Nov 23 '12 at 19:38
