Review for CentOS Web Panel.
#1
Hey guys, 
I have been looking forward for the reviews of CWS as one of my client want to host multiple websites on his VPS. I think it is a good idea to install CWS but still, I'm not much familiar with it. So a review about it would help me alot. 

Thank you,
Manal

I would prefer: cyberpanel.
cwp is also a good choice. it has a lot of features.
last time I tried cwp it did not work perfectly it even ran terrible.

I do not know how many people here use CWS, I think CWS has an option to restore back up created from cpanel, and it is a best alternative to CPanel.
You can read a good review about it from here

Okay, I want to share my experience using Centos Web Panel.

In 2017, I try to install Centos Web Panel for Webuzo Alternative. My expetation the panel is simply to setting, very light, fast, and good for service. But, the reality not like that

First, the installation is not easy than other (Webuzo, cPanel) for noob like me
Second, the admin panel is heavy to open (I use 3G connection in 2017, now 4G, so I dont know is it light now?
Third, my server often hangs


So, after that, I decide reset my vps and using Webuzo to make hosting.. Big Grin

Different, but easier and light than CWP.

And, Webuzo is supported to make multiple domains (Not only subdomain, but another domain)..

and to unlock more setting, you should "pay" it

Note: My First Recommendation is cPanel  Eh

That is my reviews using CWP in my server

I'm a VPS free panel user myself since 2014.  Experience has taught me one has to be super cautious with the free panels, like check that they are regularly updated and to search for reviews of substance first before one uses them.  Also the fact they're OK today, may not mean they will be OK tomorrow - one has to check up on them all of the time.  There are so many disappointments that have happened because of security issues as if something happens with the ownership of the panel, or the owner loses interest, the panel can turn into a high security risk.  If you've been unable to find many reviews of a panel such as Centos Web Panel that for me is already a red flag giveaway to be cautious with using it. Also as far as I know Centos Web Panel has nothing to do with the OS developers CentOS.  They're just using the name, which can be misleading. There are better known panels out there.  Most popular I've heard about for geeks has been WebMIN because it gives you lots of info about the tech parts of the VPS - it's being used for both dedicated servers and VPSs.

For my own website building purpose I prefer VestaCP. I currently have Softaculous with VestaCP which is half the price of Webuzo - 12 US$.  But it helps cut my WP installation and maintenance time by a large percentage. VestaCP is not the safest for beginners, as this year it has come up with some hacking claims mostly with e-mail and I'm almost certain not really VestaCP fault but have no proof of that.  My panels didn't get hacked.  I'm using it as it's so easy to install and it's being supported by a Forum with lots of documentation.  It's very light on resources, fast and efficient because of using nginx on top of apache, and I like its user panel very much.  So although it's OK for users with experience who know what the risks are (I only use VestaCP minimally - no e-mail or FTP), it may not be so good  for beginners - like maybe it needs to work through some issues first before it can be safely recommended for beginners.

I do support @icaksh's review for WEBUZO above - it's very good for beginners - I used it when I was a beginner myself.  Webuzo comes from Softaculous, and of course its main attraction is the Softaculous scripts.  Just a caution however - this is a single user panel only and the free version only comes with a limited number of Softaculous scripts that exclude the popular ones like WordPress.  Softulous is hoping one will sign up for a premium license, which is what I did at 25 US$ p/a.  It uses a bit more resources than VestaCP so one needs at least 1GB RAM minimum otherwise it drags, but it is very well supported by admin who will give you a fast turnaround in support tickets of a few hours at the most.  They also have a discussion forum.  Just one issue one has to watch out for is that WEBUZO can only be loaded with a minimal OS (without server scripts such as apache) - otherwise Apache in the download will conflict with Apache that came preloaded with the OS.  So if anyone is interested in Webuzo make sure you either get a minimal OS installed or use the following commands (with CentOS) before you start the download:

yum remove httpd
userdel apache

Installation commands can be found here:

https://www.webuzo.com/wiki/Install

In 2016 February I had a VPS with Interserver.com and they also recommended WEBUZO.  You can select in the Interserver Panel to have Webuzo preloaded with the OS - just to give you an idea of what one host does with a panel like this - you could probably do it with other panels too - that way you can make sure it is regularly updated and stays safe as nothing worse for a host like you when clients work with panels that are not secure:
https://www.interserver.net/tips/kb/ever...rol-panel/

Most popular panel for real geeks and hands on tech is WebMIN - it's a very old panel - looks old too, but I've heard rave reviews about it everywhere and good reports about security updates.  I tried it a few years back, but for my own purpose of website building, VestaCP suits me better.  Here's a review of WebMIN:

Im not using any panel simply because i can acomplish it with just a terminal . and most panel except cpanel is kinda not user friendly and have a learning curve that you better learn terminal instead . Cpanel is exteemely user friendly but it is paid and kinda expensive and if you want cpanel hosting is better choice than vps if what you do is just to host a website

If you compare hosting companies vs cpanel.net then is it about the price not big differances because you pay by default hosting companies $20 and for cPanel on VPS the same $20, but the most companies who offer it have more features but it may be costs some bucks extra to get the same feature but overall costs is not much if you have two running on CentOS.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I've decided to stay with CWP as its easy to install. Although it takes a bit more time but it worth the game. Also the very recent update by CWP is way too astonishing. I would suggest you guys to give it a try.

I'm hosting over 3 websites on CWP and it all works good.

That sounds great @Manal.  Maybe you could do a review for us of CWP.  I'm curious to see what it's doing.
