    looking for control panel for webhosting

    Hi. Wasn't sure where to post this.

    My company does webhosting and we are looking to buy a descent control panel (not cpanel) for a fair price.

    I've seen Personal Control Panel 4 but can not find where to buy it from.

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure if you'll get a useful answer here or not, but you should ask over at webhostingtalk.com. All the hosting gurus hang out over there. Best of luck.

    No I think CPanel is excellent program, just out of our budget right now. Was looking for something cheaper than $1000.

    Definitely consider Plesk then.

    You can usually find cPanel from a reseller for $50 to $85 per month. I know some hosts here like H-Sphere. Plesk is popular, as is Ensim.

    Do you already have a server?

    I have a personal ethos of liking HSphere and staying away from Ensim.

    CPanel and Plesk are both very good pieces of software as well

    Hi,

    We use HSphere (www.psoft.net) and love it. Not only from the end user point of view but the way it was designed is great. We have used HSphere since early this year (switched from cpanel) and have had no major problems. We hardly ever need to contact their support team. To better use hsphere you will need at least 2 servers although 3 or more is better. We use one server dedicated for the control panel alone for security reason since this is where customers information is stored.

    Hope this information be of use to you.

    Just to backup what Jim said about PSoft and HSphere, it's a good product and it's getting better. You can quite easily get away with running it on one server though, which is what we have done whilst we were setting up infrastructure in the UK, it runs very nice - but it was a fairly powerful server.
