Question about domain management and a service provider

I'm using mochahost (www.mochahost.com) as a service provider and they offer plesk as a domain management tool for 6$ a month. This isn't a lot of money but it bothers me to pay for software that I use once during the initial set up and then hardly ever use again. They said I don't have to use Plesk but then I have to manage the domain myself.

What are my options for managing it myself? I assume there's some other (free) software tool I could intall that would perform this task.

If you are on shared services, then you are stuck with what they provide. If you are on a dedicated or VPS, then you can use whatever panel you want, provided you or someone can install it for you.
Webmin / Virtualmin is free and very good, most of the others that are worth using will cost you something, usually a small fee monthly.
Of course, you can always just use shell access, if provided.  If you just have one domain / site, it's not too awful bad, but can be quite a chore if you have multiple domains or accounts (reseller) to manage.
