Hi!

Provider's offering control panel's say situations are simpler to make use of, people not offering control panel's state that control panel's are slow and restricting, what's better (inside your opinions ?)

If you're a good Unix/Linux user, Telnet is right for you

But when your not, User interface will fit you better.

Both kinds of companies are being truthful. What each overlooks is that it's the understanding degree of each user that determines which is the best for their demands.

The main difference is similar to the main difference between individuals who are able to use DOS instructions and individuals who require Home windows to do similar functions. The command level is faster, without doubt about this. While using interface causes it to be simpler at a lower price aware customers, and it is safer. You cannot make serious mistakes, therefore creating major problems, utilizing an interface, a minimum of not unexpectedly.

Using telnet is faster, but unless of course someone knows Linux or Unix perfectly and it is confident with the command, they ought to most likely stay with the user interface. It will not be rather as quickly, but could have them from leading to problems and can execute the instructions they believe they're performing.

You will not need to look far to determine actual effects when individuals use telnet who should not. There is a publish at http://www.scriptkeeper.com/ubb/Forum5/HTML/000781.html from somebody that messed up a lot of IP addresses by utilizing telnet and never understanding what she was doing.

In my opinion that individual comes from Dialtone
hehe
It is a fact that the one who triggered the issue has her server located at Dialtone Internet, because the discussion clearly discloses. There's a response from DI within the discussion. The particular clients are irrelevant, however, because the problem is telnet versus user interface, and so i neglect to begin to see the reson for snickering as well as mentioning the webhost. Was there some relevance I skipped?
Or......
just look for a host which has Telnet &lifier a 'control pannel'. eg's include www.digitalspace.net and www.5dollarhosting.com
