Choosing a control panel depends upon the Hosting plan you choose. Generally Plesk and DotNetPanel are offered along with Windows Hosting plans and cPanel with Linux Hosting plans. Different control panels have there own importance. But it is said that cPanel is a very user friendly control panel when compared to other control panels available in market. Its a very fast control panel and has a very simple user interface, so even a new user can use it easily.
A Control panel refers in the web hosting industry to the web interface provided by the hosting provider for the administration of the hosted websites, databases, emails, and a lot more. Today, almost all web hosting companies offer control panels on their shared platform, even on VPS or dedicated servers. ByteNAP provides both controls panels: cPanel and Plesk.
I also prefers Helm, because it is very user friendly, Unbeatable flexibility, Robust interface, Extremely Secure, High level of automation, Built in billing system, Unique custom built services, Fastest development, Best pricing.
4 main panel Helm,Cpanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk.
Each of these has their own set of advantages, and yes, disadvantages too. but one has consistently out performed the other control panels. The control panel software I speak of is Helm.
I always loved to use cpanel control panel, its easy and secure. Most of the providers provides cpanel control panel. Its a paid control panel.
There are number of good upcoming panels and there are number of over-rated panel like plesk which I have always experienced to be very problematic yet it seems its has attained good publicity.
It all comes down to which panel and you and your clients prefer over others. There really is no best panel.
Cpanel and Plesk are widely preferred and used Hosting Control panel. My vote is for them you can use them.
You forgot to add "Enkompass" here ... In the coming future, EnKompass will beat his competitors.
