If you're looking for a version of Pterodactyl with some more quality-of-life features out of the box then WISP is your go-to choice.
Built on the foundations of Ptero, the team has done a great job at making an easy-to-use game panel with more features built directly into their software.
The installation is one command line and then you're done so setting up multiple machines or dedicated servers is a breeze.
The biggest downfall is although Ptero is open source, WISP is not and they charge you a monthly fee for their services. This is expected as they are aimed mostly at people who run a dedicated server hosting business.
The software is still in its infancy stage so there are bugs to be expected.
PufferPanel - Could not find a reason to use this over Pterodactyl
If you're just looking at hosting a single game server on another machine and it will only be you managing it, then you can't go past WindowsGSM. It offers the most basic functionality in an easy-to-use way, and you can give others access to do basic tasks such as shut down, restart, etc.
If you run multiple game servers with multiple developers, then Pterodactyl or WISP is where it's at. These control panels are the standard when it comes to game server management and should suit the needs of most users.
