    If you are running a VPS or a Dedicated Server, you must be looking for a Control Panel. Commercial options like cPanel are defiantly good, but for ordinary tasks, or the users are looking for low end machines and a free/cheap a way to manage their Servers, we have several good Open Source/Free Options.

    I am presenting the 6 most widely used and reliable Control Panels which are a great alternative to cPanel and DirectAdmin.

    A. VestaCP : This is simply the best i have used. I personally prefer Vesta over other panels. Vesta has once click installation and has an awesome Mordern UI with all that you need :
    • Web Server
    • DNS server
    • Database Server
    • Mail Server
    • FTP Server
    • Nginx out of the box
    • SSL certificates & SNI
    • Wildcard support
    • Configuration Templates
    • DKIM support
    • Fast Backups
    • Easy update manager
    • System Monitoring
    • AntiSpam / Antivirus
    • WHMCS billing support

    D. WebMin :

    This is a tested and very reliable control panel. Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing etc.

    E. CentOS Web Panel ( CWP ) : CWP is a new control panel for centos based servers. I have found it to be relatively slow compares to other panels. But its reliable and it works.

    The CWP Includes :
    • Apache Web Server (Mod Security + OWASP rules optional)
    • PHP 5.4 (suPHP, SuExec + PHP version switcher)
    • MySQL + phpMyAdmin
    • Postfix + Dovecot + roundcube webmail (Antivirus, Spamassassin optional)
    • CSF Firewall
    • File System Lock (no more website hacking, all your files are locked from changes)
    • Backups (optional)
    • AutoFixer for server

    F. Another worthy mention is KloxoMR.

    Mustafa has invested a huge effort in Kloxo and the new products seems reliable and patched. This is special edition (fork) of Kloxo with many features not existing on Kloxo official release (6.1.12+). This fork named as Kloxo-MR (meaning ‘Kloxo fork by Mustafa Ramadhan’)

    KloxoMR, is that like a remake of the classic Kloxo that was buggy and unstable?
