      Open Control Panel is an open source webserver managing system. It allows web hosts to sell their hosting to other people without all of the problems of dealing with configuration files, and its all for free. It installs and manages an Apache Web server, PHP, and much more to come.

  • It's Free
  •       Open Control Panel is absolutely free. There are absolutely no cost to you, and you get this great control panel. It even comes with the source code that you may modify and give away on your own website, as long as you follow the license.

    Problems with OpenControlPanel?

          There are still a few problems with openControlPanel, because it is still in its pre-alpha stage. Such as security. There are many security threats, and there shall be until mod_ssl is added into the apache 2.0 configuration files. Another Problem so far is that no installation programs have been built, meaning you must manually install all the open source programs that we have included in the Control Panel.
