web hosting – management tools are generally terrible

With the exception of my current hosting provider, MediaTemple (www.mediatemple.net), most management tools out there are painfully terrible. Add to that the pathetic interfaces used to manage your database tools, and you’ve got a terrible experience. It’s too bad no one can make money on these application areas, because the world’s pseudo-geeks like myself are totally lost attempting to use them. Perhaps that’s just a “barrier-to-entry,” but it shouldn’t be.
