Comparing Panels - Dotnet Panel - VS- Helm - VS -VWDHoting Panel
I think ths would be a nice idea to compare the most common panels available today.
Since this are the tools, one would use in day to day life.
I think this thread will really help all of us, since every one could share their experiences about the panels.
With this, we might come across some great features unheard by us but experienced by others.
I share my views favouring DotNet Panel. The only thing they need to adopt in future is attachment facility currently given only by VWDHosting. The VWDHosting panel also gives an (1) Instant Database name (2) Ready made Connection String (3) A Confirmation
message of attachment of Database.
The only 3 things missing in Dotnet Panels are the ones mentioned above. DotNet Panel does not show any confirmation message if the .bak file is restored to the database. Plus it is also not clear, what happens if someone else will upload the database with
the same name, since the IP address of sql2005 is same for many customers. The database of few kits are common. (1) Aspnetdb (2) commercedb etc.
I have heard that dotnet panel is comming out with new version. I think they should incorporate few plus points of VWD Hosting since VWD Hosting shall never come out as professional Hosters.
This is just my point of views. I would luv to hear others too.
