I have a couple of dedicated servers using a combination of SSH, Webmin 
for server admin and Cpanel/WHM for front end stuff.

Webmin is effectively a visual SSH for me. If you end up with a server 
where you have root access I can recommend it as a useful back end tool. 
It's invaluable to me for things like managing root cron jobs, backup 
scripts, file management etc etc where it has improved features of the 
WHM tools, but setting up front end stuff is much easier in CPanel. I'm 
running around 120 sites on each server.
