vePortal vs SolusVM vs Panenthe

Now that we know that VPS Management Software can be done better, it’s time to make improvements. We at HostBill also feel responsible for these improvements and we would like to have better API.

HyperVM took big share of VPS management software. When I compare HyperVM to current solutions like vePortal / SolusVM / Panenthe I think it’s better.

We would like to provide full VPS management, not poor solution that most of the billing softwares deliver by default. And they call it “great software”.

Please note we don’t judge any VPS managers, we just compare API. We would like to have all VPS managers integrated into HostBill soon.

Just one thing missing – Xen support. Our customers need this feature. Stable and good VPS managers with Xen support. We are counting on you!
