So what do you do? - do you always install a control panel on the server which you host your important websites?
Do you choose a free control panel or one which you require to pay for such as cPanel?
Also, please share your experience with the control panels you've used in the past (free or paid ones).
I'm configuring my servers from the console, and using ServerSuit if my client want to manage server hisself.
I'd tried to use many free control panels and did stop on ServerSuit some time ago.
Completely happy with it along with my clients.

You will no longer need to spend hours trying to find all the services in your account or update a domain. You can now manage multiple services, such as renewals, configurations, administration and customer information, in just a few clicks.
Choose a higher performing model if you need to. Back up and manage your backups to protect your data. Isolate your websites by adding geolocated IP addresses. Switch to KVM or Rescue mode for your scheduled maintenance. It's up to you!
Hosting can be broken down into four general types: shared hosting, virtual private servers (VPS), managed hosting, and dedicated servers. Shared hosting plans are the lowest tier of web hosting in terms of performance, price and customizability, which leaves those with serious hosting needs to look into VPS, managed hosting, or dedicated hosting options.
