I'm sorry to say that I have been forced to move away from zpanel/sentora.

I was a windows ZPanel user and have been waiting patiently for Sentora to be released so that I could start moving everything over. Sadly it has just taken far to long and clients can't wait, I couldn't face setting up new clients on a system that I knew had been ended (zpanel) or unofficially stable (sentora).

Over the weekend I setup a new Plesk server and transferred over 10 domains without any hassle at all, not to mention it supports windows as well which means I can continue to use the antiv, backup tools etc as I have always been doing.

Good luck to Sentora and I will keep checking in to see how its going but I cant help thinking it just needs to be more organised with a proper news feed/time line for users so they know whats going on, telling users to check github to see if anything has changed is simply not good enough. I know its a project run in peoples spare time and we as users all appreciate that fully but the air of unknown is not reassuring for a system that many will end up relying on.

I never moved to sentora as I was still waiting for a stable version, so I was using ZPanel on Server 2008 R2 Web Edition hosting 10 domains along with their associated databases and emails. Not huge domains, I think the busiest sees 8000-10000 hits a month. I also had a second ZPanel box, also win server, running at home hosting 4 domains under development.

I think that windows port should need a revamp. I still believe IIS is better than apache on windows.

Did you check this?

I agree IIS on windows is much better than apache on Windows. Plesk uses IIS and it seems to do a great job using it including using windows DNS rather than named for example like ZPanel did.

I did see the Sentora for windows thread but as I said I need something as a confirmed stable version, waiting for Sentora to reach that stage is just going to take to long for me.

I am paying for the $10 a month package to host upto 30 domains, $10 a month is nothing in the grand scheme of things, I probably spend 4x that on coffee from starbucks a month! There is even a $4 a month package for up to 5 domains. All packages get the same software & support.
