I used cPanel on most my hosting control panels but had not a chance to use ISPManager in the past, I would give it a try for a new VPS. I am wondering there are some web hosts here used ISPManager. what are your reviews for this control panel and how compared to cPanel?

ISPManager is imo old and outdated such as other panels like DirectAdmin.

If I was going choose something other than cPanel I'd go with Plesk or Webmin.

I'd say cPanel if within budget, if not, ISPManager is much cheaper and does the job! But cPanel is way better and is worth the money, IMO.

Always cPanel.

But...It all depends on your requirements. Are you going to use it for yourself only? Are your clients going to use it? If it's only for yourself, the choice is easy. Pick the one that suits you the most. But, if you have clients and if they plan on using your control panel, then get cPanel. Everyone is used to cPanel. It has the best UI. Even beginners can use cPanel, but I can't really say the same for other panels too.

Another but. If you want an open source/free alternative then go with ISPConfig, VestaCP, Webmin, Floxlor or Ajenti.

ISPmanager is a good alternative if you need a more cost-effective control panel than cPanel. In terms of functionality and support, it's there. In terms of the pricing - much more affordable.

Did you tried this hosting panel?
If yes, then how to compare it with Plesk or Directadmin?
I am going to move to Plesk for all my websites but considering other options.

cPanel is amazing and clearly the most popular panel. Second place would be plesk. Directadmin & ISPmanager seems to lag far behind in terms of popularity
