Omg Vistapanel @___@ That brings back bad memories. I just remember starting out hosting like this (when I first started the site I was using forumotion u-u) and having to use Vistapanel. Cpanel is so much better...way easier layout especially if you're just learning. xP
I love cPanel its best part easy to use, working with cPanel is super easy then IG you compare with other Panels there. Now most of the company cPanel hosting, however there's some hosting provider that offers custom cPanel like BlueHost.
