Pro Admin, reseller, client panel
Pro Very customizable and simple
This is the control panel that I have been using for months and have had no problems with it. It is quite simple to use and highly customizable.
Pro Simple, stable
It took me much less time to setup my servers with aaPanel than all other control panels. I've been using it for some years now and I'm always happy.
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 It has no Reverse Proxy
It doesn't have reverse proxy support yet. Although recently they have just added OpenLiteSpeed and that is a great advance to not have to be configuring rules in Nginx every so often.
