Alternative to cPanel/WHM 2019

Discussion in 'Web Hosting' started by newbie191, Oct 20, 2019.

    Is there a real alternative free or paid to cPanel/WHM? Many panels have came and gone but cPanel is still there. After the recent price increase it has given many companies a reason to revise their pricing.
    I just want to know what are other options available which are offcource secure and have at least all the basic features of cpanel.

    You can read more about this on WHT. The best choice at this moment is DirectAdmin.
    Anyway, I expect more changes to come in the next 1-2 years in the web hosting control panel market. One is that is very possible someone will buy DirectAdmin.

    The shift away from cPanel, has been to DirectAdmin mostly.

    But here are my suggestions:
    - If you own all the sites, then I would suggest using CentminMod for setting up hosting, all from command line
    - I like VestaCP, but there are some security related issues(unfixed) in the panel. You can mitigate the risks by restricting IPs to API and control Panel.
    - For paid option, you can choose between Direct Admin and Cyber Panel
    - If you want free shared hosting, then checkout ISPConfig. Setup can be a hard work.

    Directadmin is the best choice right now. They have developed a migration tool as well which would offer seamless transfer.

    I don't really like the interface of DirectAdmin, from the cheapest versions would recommend a free one - Webmin.

    We use Directadmin it is simple and intuitive and with the new template with icons it looks better.

    What about CWP(centOSwebpanel)?, Even though it is not 100% mirror alternate to cPanel, but I have installed and used for several servers and is good.

    I agree, CWP is a good free alternative to cPanel.

    It support Cloudlinux, Softaculous and has a built in cPanel migration process.

    Also there is a builtin feature to install Varnish Cache Server on CentOS Webpanel in a click of a button, and is a powerful reputable frontend caching engine to boost the website loading speed and reduce server’s CPU load.
