VestaCP is one of the most popular control panels for VPS. This control panel is highly recommended for anyone who is in the process of learning to understand server settings. It’s also recommended for the inexperienced beginner to manage the shell because it makes it easier for them to do web hosting management (via panel).

 

One of the striking advantages of this control panel is its light weight enough to allow it to be installed on a low-specification VPS.
