Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Support PHP 7+
Pro Admin, reseller, client panel
Pro Lets you quickly have a good update-to-date server that hosts multiple sites with little fuss
You can use it to:
- Host multiple types of websites (blogs, shopping carts)
- Host a mail server with zero problems sending/receiving from the Google.
- Have customized backups to a remote server
- Use your second instance as a slave DNS server
- Use CSF firewall, which is integrated (as a plugin)
Con Poorly named users for clients and websites
When you create your first "client" they are given a system user name but this name doesn't appear when using the command line. Instead they are called client1, then client2... etc. When you add a domain to any client then it gets its own user as well but the first web site gets web1, then web2... etc. This becomes incredibly confusing very quickly and creates lots of gotchas.
Con Not postgresql
Con Not mature from data Migration perspective
Not mature from data Migration perspective.
All of this hosting panel lacks on seamless migration.
The option to migrate web domain data from one host to another is missing.
Con Pretty clunky and lacks polish
It's not the prettiest product out there, but if you intend to either put your own front end on it, or just use it for non "mums & dads", then it's great.
