The ISPmanager panel is well-known for its advantages and capabilities in managing Linux-based VPS and servers. Recently, ISPsystem released a new version - ISPmanager 6.

This graphical manage panel simplifies work with installed software and has been actively developed since the first version was released in 2013. Improvements in ISPmanager 5 included supporting new operating systems and additional tools like PHP 7.3 and 7.4 and MySQL 8.0. ISPmanager also offers unlimited users in any tariff plan, access rights, full manage over domains, DNS editing and management, work with mail systems, creation and administration of databases, connecting users via FTP to certain directories, firewall, backup, complete statistics, and separation of users by access rights.

The main changes in ISPmanager 6 affected the tariff system, with retail prices increasing and special offers available for partners. The Lite, Pro, host, and business versions are available, with the most advanced plan including Cloudlinux, reseller management, IP addresses, and other additional tools. Users will not be "forced" to switch to ISPmanager 6, and support will continue to work with users of older versions.


I recommend adding support for Oracle Linux as an excellent replacement for the discontinued CentOS, which would require minimal changes. In terms of a protected connection of users via FTP, instead of OpenVPN, consider using WireGuard. Additionally, it may be even better to exclude FTP in favor of SFTP.


The new ISPmanager 6 offers licenses divided by the number of domains served by one active panel, with options ranging from a free trial version for one domain to support for an unlimited number of domains in the Host and Business plans.

All tariffs support integration with familiar models for an additional fee, including Let's Encrypt, ImunifyAV, Softaculous, Cloudflare, DDoS Guard, KernelCare,, and Cloudlinux (except for Lite). The main difference between ISPmanager 6 rates is the price, with the minimum tariff now costing 5 €/month.
While the company's treatment of partners and clients may be indifferent, if the new panel is more expensive, some clients may choose to stop using it.


The addition of support for new operating systems, software tools like PHP 7.3 and 7.4, and MySQL 8.0 is definitely beneficial for users.

The unlimited users in any tariff plan, access rights management, domain management, DNS editing, mail system support, database administration, FTP user access control, firewall, backup, statistics, and user separation by access rights are all valuable features that make ISPmanager a comprehensive solution for managing Linux-based VPS and servers.
