So it looks that after zPanel project got hacked it is not secure to run it and there is no support available for it. So I was wondering if there is alternative panes of same similar functionality? We used to work with zPanel but it looks like time to move away? Any ideas?

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 Webmin Ajenti ISPConfig

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.

Don´t know about panels with same poor functionality but someone have same issue but needs more professional hosting software with features similar to panels like cPanel or Plesk but comes for a much cheaper price then it´s ISPmanager.

Features of the ISPmanager Free 14-day trial version

P.S. You should try it´s built’in PHP selector

ServerPilot also has a free plan.
