    Considering that you don't have much knowledge about linux and servers, I would advice you to go for cPanel. Yeah you have to pay for that (I think the license is $5/month). But that would help you in the long run. Reason, you must have used shared hosting, so you would be aware of cPanel (and WHM) interface instead of other control panel. So you can do stuff yourself once you get that installed. Otherwise you would be asking for help again and again for doing small things within other control panel (also hard to search for stuff for others than cPanel). if you don't want to go for it then go with Plesk. Simple as that.

    Technically a lot of hosting companies (at least what a remembered) gave you Plesk for free, then cpanel was $5/month - $10/month depending on how many licenses you needed.

    VPS is a pain, specially if its self managed you would need to SSH Command Line install your Panel.

    I suggest if you have some Linux experience to not use a control panel at all, especially with 128mb ram.

    Otherwise, from the free alternatives i would use Webmin.

    Don't use any panel with such a VPS, you'll kill the VPS with great ease.

    With a few command line, set up the web server + DNS server if you don't have any external ones, Exim and you are good to go. Takes time but it defo worth knowing how to do it, especially if you are in the web hosting business as i have seen in a few post of yours.

    Maybe I'm stating the obvious but isn't 128mb of ram a bit light?
