WordPress Control Panels Ubuntu

Hello I would like to know if i can create my own web hosting services and allow my clients a control panel like cpanel alternative zpanel. I currently have a reseller acct with other web host and would like to change to cloud servers instead, but want the same ease with which i create accts in WHM. Can someone give a overview of what I would need to do. I will only be hosting wordpress sites.

We don't provide licenses for cPanel/WHM or any control panel but you can certainly install them on droplets on your account to accomplish this. For cPanel you would need to acquire a VPS license from or a reseller and this guide will walk you through the install. cPanel's official documentation also has a guide if you prefer CentOS 7.x

cPanel is a convenient application that allows users to administer servers through a GUI interface instead of the traditional command line. Although the installation for cPanel is relatively simple, the script does take several hours to run. Here's how to install cPanel on a virtual server running Centos 6

Hello thanks for the reply but I meant I don't want to use cpanel , and i'm unclear if zpanel will allow almost the same features as cpanel. I would really like to know what free tools I could use with your servers to start a hosting services. Thanks.

I would recommend VestaCP for hosting. You can install it on CentOS/Ubuntu/Debian.

ZPanel is good however cPanel is far better. The only downside to cPanel is the hefty price you have to pay for the license. I personally use to get my licenses.

Alternatively if your clients are true coding people, you can set them up a virtual host in Apache and give them an FTP account. Once all of this is done, they'll be able to login however this won't give them a friendly UI so that is something to take into consideration.

Thanks guys. Since I'm a beginner in web hosting my self I don't want to spend too much only to realize that I cannot complete the process on my own. I will give vesta a try. Again Thanks.
