    There are quiet a few control panels for hosting accounts now days. Which did you first learn on and which do you use now as of current?

    I first learned on a cPanel control panel and I still use it. All clients of mine on my hosting use cPanel for their control panel.

    I've been in the Hosting industry for about 10 years as a systems administrator working for various hosting companies and data centers before GeekGhost. I am personally also cPanel certified. From my experience, cPanel all the way. I've used and installed Plesk, H-Sphere, DirectAdmin as well as others and for the money cPanel is the way to go. Really intuitive and easy to navigate on the clients' end and makes migrations to cPanel from most other control panels a breeze thanks to cPanel's migration service. Of course, if they're coming from another cPanel host it's as easy and entering info in to a few fields and clicking a button. Everything gets migrated.

    The DNS clustering it allows is nothing short of fantastic. We have DNS servers that serve DNS for all production servers and each server runs its own DNS as well. With DNS clustering we can easily move accounts around if needed with zero to very minimal downtime. It's what also allows us to split reseller accounts between two data centers if that's what the client requests.

    The ability to create themes or brand the existing theme is a nice touch as well.

    When all else fails, cPanel support is top notch and second to none. Quick resolutions and knowledgeable techs. Couple that with the immense community support and most issues are very easily resolved.

    From a server administrator's perspective managing several servers I wouldn't go with anything but cPanel. Makes life easier for the client and the admin.

    Forumotion's control panel is by far my favourite control panel. It gives users many options making it accessible even for the newest members. There are two settings on this control panel: simple and advanced. Those who are new can start with simple and still create a rather decent forum! All the control panel tabs are well labeled so even if you don't know where something is, it's easy to find.

    The Favorites section is an area where you can store and organize computer objects in order to quickly access them whenever you need it. The Favorite section can contain Machine objects, Static Containers and Dynamic Containers. In addition, the Static Container can contain any types of object, including sub-containers, allowing you to create a hierarchy of your choice. The Favorites Section can also be used to generate a WMI Report on a group of machines. Godaddy promo code
