    I dislike panels/interfaces because they tend to severely limit administration capabilities. For me, screens and scripts have been the way to go. If you or your staff are not as familiar with the command line you may want to consider setting up a panel.

  4. I alternate between a panel, screen & scripts combo or dockerization, depending on the type of servers I’m managing at that given time.

    For my company’s servers, I use The Pterodactyl Panel; for my small un-scalable network I use Bash Scripts and screen; and for my large, upcoming, massively scalable network - I use dockerization with a Custom management interface that I’m currently developing. The interface is pretty much integrated as a discord bot - so if I wanna pull the network down for maintenance, I can do it from discord and it’ll automatically make an announcement in the specific channels.
