Server Management Panels: FASTPANEL against cPanel
I used CPanel months ago. Everything was OK though I didn't like the pricing. As for me, it was unreasonably expensive.
This is why I decided to move to FASTPANEL which is absolutely free but has all the same functions (at least the same functions that I needed).
Moreover, it's design is quite handy and much better than CPanel's one. Now I don't understand why people pay for cPanel when they have FASTPANEL for free.
What panel do you use guys and why?

cpanel for the win. The reason that most prefer and use cpanel is because almost all tutorials, instructions for installing scripts, instructions for setting things up like creating a database etc... All use cpanel.
Cpanel is tried and true. It's the industry standard.
Also many script developers do not provide support unless you are using cpanel.

I never heard about this hosting panel before and this seems a new panel and it needs time and marketing to reach out to cPanel levels

Well for one cPanel is used by many major hosting companies and it offers the ability to move hosting accounts form one host to another with ease. And it is very popular and most customers know and understand how to use the control panel. When customers are looking for a new company they don't necessarily want to learn a new control panel. We have been a cPanel partner for several years and they do provide outstanding support when needed. You will not receive such important features from a free control panel.

I think that it's already on the level of cPanel so I use it right now

I am sure you do bits it’s not. Not even by a small margin. When your a host there is a lot of other things to consider.

A cpanel host will say sure. I can do a cpanel to cpanel transfer for you for free.
A host that does not use cpanel, would say either no or it's going to cost you to have us move your site.
Basically cpanel rules the hosting realm and will for a long time to come. They are not going to retrain their support staff to learn fastpanel that very few use compared to cpanel.
Fastpanel may be a very nice replacement for cpanel. It's just not going to take cpanels market share except for maybe a small percentage that can't afford cpanel or are hobbyists.
Serious businesses are going to go with the 800 pound gorilla. That being cpanel.

The only problem I see with the host move statement. Is Hostgator uses cPanel and we have taken a lot of their customers and have never had a cpanel restore with out problems. In some cases the restore was not possible so we just moved their files and databases over manually. They mod it so much that its no longer compatible with relatively un-moded cPanel systems.

I am looking to try the panel. Haven't yet installed it.
It looks like it is very lightweight. May be it will gain traction with VPS users.

I've used cPanel the most and also recommend clients. I had to install it only once myself as cPanel WHM on a VPS for a project.
I don't know Fastpanel, but I see it's free for limited time period (18 months) and after that you will have to pay for it. There is no clear picture about the pricing structure.
