    Plesk or Direct Admin


    I want to run my own hosting webserver, but i don't know which admin utility i should have.

    You have Plesk 7.5 Reloaded or Direct Admin or CPanel?

    Could someone tell me which one is better and why?

    Now, I've never used either, but isn't it easier to just use neither and log in with SSH to administer the system instead?

    I may have misunderstood your situation, though.

    cpanel is very good, extremely newb friendly which is a bonus! I have cpanel bundled with my domain and used it extensively until I installed my own Mandrake Linux server for MySQL and PHP. I haven't used cpanel from an administrative perspective though, only from a user perspective.

    Can't comment on the other 2 options as I have never used them.

    Any free options who is easy to set up.

    If not, what is the easiest way to set up a ftp, web server on a single computer. I would prefer a web-based setup and config program

    cpanel is very easy to use and functional. It is also expensive for a home user. Is it a home based server or in a commercial web host provider / server farm?

    Thanks for your replys.

    This is not a reseller server.
    Only for own use.

    I also tried it, but this is for no use for a single person.
