Anyone use cPanel?

#1 Postby Jesse202 » Mar 12, 2012 2:58 pm

I almost never use control panels. Haven't used cPanel in years.

Seems most server management companies require cPanel to work with the server. I'd like to try PlatinumServerManagement which only work with cPanel servers. I've only heard excellent things about them.

So question being; how does cPanel affect a server Vs not having it?

Server being:
4x2TB Hard Drive

To me, it seems pointless to have a control panel on a file server. Waste of resources, really. Are there any decent server management companies out there that do not require one?

PlatinumServerManagement = low cost
without cpanel = high cost

if you have a budget of 60-70/mo per server, then you can get good ones

you don't really need server management for 'file servers', if the initial setup is done correct; most management companies will do this for 70-80$ one time fee
