Web Hosting Control Panel


Does anyone know of any good free hosting control panels. I know that there is Ensim, and ISP4U but those cost money. Thanks.

Would webmin work out with other users configuring their own webspace and dns settings? Are there any other free packages out there?

Exclamation i wouldnt go there

Webmin is a great package for setting up servers and users and such, but webmin is a package designed more for root to be able to control the whole box from remote locations, and it would not be a good idea to give access to Webmin, I am also searching for a good CP for hosting and have come up almost dead ended.

i have installe cpanel(www.cpanel.net) which is sweet but pretty expensive (im on a 15 day license), another option is ensim Webppliance, which in my opinion is not very robust but does work.( ensim doesnt give out demos or even have online demo), or plesk which i just found and played w/ online demo, which didnt seem all that great and not sure about there user interface.

I hope i have helped some and if you come across a cp that works and is cheap ( or FREE!!! even better) please send me an email.

A quick search on freshmeat (http://freshmeat.net/) also yielded another control panel available for free: Account Services Manager (http://www.acctmgr.com/). It has a lesser rating than the above mentioned web://cp project (7.88 vs 8.34) but an RPM is available so it might be less of a headache to set-up than web://cp. Let me know how you make out, since I will be setting one up soon myself.

Good Luck!

Webmin also has a side project called Usermin. Usermin is meant as a scaled-down version of Webmin for individual server users. It doesn't have the main admin controls that would make webmin dangerous to give to a normal user. You might want to check it out and see if it fits your needs!

I personally have had quite a bit of experience with Ensim Webppliance and SW-Soft Plesk. These are not free control panels, but have VERY nice and slick interfaces. The BIG problem these have is that your system gets locked down to the whim of what webppliance or plesk require to work properly. Forget about upgrading just apache or php, because if you do, the next time your upgrade your control panel, something WILL break. I know this from plenty of experience. You can end up with a big mess if you are the type that needs to customize your system software packages. With Webmin/Usermin you don't have this problem.

BTW- plesk is a better and more flexible system than webppliance in my opinion
