The project team work and provide the software as a ‘hobby’ project, we are not commercially backed nor do we do this for financial reward, we give up our spare time to develop, support and maintain the software.

Froxlor

Froxlor is probably the control panel with the most organized and easy to navigate interface. It’s an open source project that is licensed under GPLv2, which basically means you’re free to copy, use, modify and distribute the software as long as you make your changes available to the original source, you can also include it commercially but you must disclose that your product uses froxlor.It unfortunately does not include a file manager, but it lets you create an FTP account very easily, this does complicate things for clients, but if you’re a freelance web designer or developer, you’re the one who should be handling uploading and setting up their site anyways.

  • You guys definitely missed InterWorx on this. It’s a great alternative to cPanel. It’s just as feature rich and just as or more secure. Side note: zPanel is not supported anymore, so no one should use that.

  • I would caution against using a free control panel, because essentially you get what you pay for. zPanel is no longer supported, which is essentially the risk you are taking by using a free control panel. I would highly recommend trying out something like InterWorx, which you can get very cheaply through a reseller and takes security seriously, which is important in this day and age.

    • Im aware that Interworx is a great alternative but I listed only free alternatives here.
      I also addded some new alternative do check it.
      Thanks 🙂
