Free and open source web hosting solution alt to cPanel


Hello all,

I am looking for a free and open source web hosting solution for a planned startup company. I have used cPanel on my own hosted websites, but it turns out it's proprietary.

Can somebody please recommend a free web hosting solution for me? Basically, my potential customers right now have simple HTML+CSS websites; a few of them use PHP and MySQL.

Here's my reference.

Thanks all!

For now, I'd like to keep it simple; it just have to work. meaning, no concern for scalability yet. My preferred platform is CentOS or Debian.

Thanks!

If you’re not paying for the product, you ARE the product.

Hmm. Actually, it's the other way around; I will be providing the web hosting service. I just need a control panel which will let them take on their websites.

It's pretty ironic to read this in a Linux forum.

Why do you need a control panel for such rudimentary services?
I think you're looking for an alternative to cPanel that is free, but has the same features, that your clients can benefit from?
GUI File "managers", phpMyAdmin, DNS, whatever...

I am not trying to be argumentative, it's just that I am intrigued by your inquiry.
So I guess some context is needed.

Subscribed with interest...

Yes, this is exactly what I'm looking for. I hope we're on the same page now?

Webmin is a good choice.
