There is so many free Cpanel alternatives most of them has some restrictions like: Phpmyadmin, MySql, File manager but if you want to host a WP (WordPress) website than you can use them for free:

  1. ZesleCP
  2. VestaCP
  3. Webmin
  4. Ajenti

Also you can get premium versions of them as well.

As you said low-cost alternate than I would like to suggest “plesk” it is the best alternative of Cpanel.


Hello, all

This is a really interesting question that I’ve seen before and would like to share my opinion with the rest of you.

There a lot of web panels available (most of them are free to use) that you can choose in order to manage your server. What I can recommend is to try them as in this way you can see if it really suits your needs.

I will list the top control panels that I recommend:

CentOS Web Panel
Vesta CP

and of course I need to mention Plesk although it’s not free it’s been available for a while and it’s always been the main cPanel competitor. It has a lot of build-in features and a lot of plugins that you can install and you can always reach to their support team if needed which is something that might come handy in time.

You’ve now got some great options if you want to use a control panel with your server but you don’t want to pay for a license. I’ve tried to lay out most of the available options, but which one is best will ultimately depend on your individual needs.
