    Directadmin.

    It has a full cpanel backup importer and everything.

    Many of our users have migrated over with minimal issues. The few bugs we've run into the Directadmin team addressed quickly :)

    Here is the Pricing of DA, but with many licenses, you can get it even cheaper.

    And for management, I'm going to leave that for Francisco to explain

    Get ApisCP lifetime license for your own server or vps without subscribing to CloudLinux or Softaculous anymore
    or
    buy vps with free DirectAdmin license or get a monthly license

    The obvious choice right now is DirectAdmin. Has all the major functions of cPanel.

    Some providers offer it for free. Others offer it for $3-5 (VPS) and $10-15 (bare Metal) with unlimited accounts.

    If you mean the design, you can have a sidebar layout for your admit layer priviledges in DA.

    Take a look at Directadmin demo. Should answer your questions :).

    https://www.directadmin.com/demo.php

    It is a single panel with different ACL. So no whm/CPanel jumble fuckery.

    UI can be customizable, it works. End users won’t really feel much different.

    Here at the company we are offering Control Web Panel (https://centos-webpanel.com/), aka CWP, to our customers.
    We get great performance for WordPress.
    His license is $12 per year.
    You will suffer a little in the beginning, but you will get used to it.

    I recommend RamNode ~ BuyShared
    I DON'T RECOMMEND VPS Slim

    Words of wisdom. As a bonus you will get an option to use multiple external DNS providers, e.g. Cloudflare (still pink dream for DA).

    had a client talking to me yesterday about https://www.controlpanel.wiki I have never used it before

    i have been a cPanel user for a very long time on my own personal stuff and I have been looking at directadmin myself

    I really think this theme cheapens DA, their original default theme is fantastic.

    For CPanel movers, the above theme works well as it makes things “easier”. I like their old old theme (no icon just link).

    I think this new theme of DA makes the transition from cP a little bit easier even for a non-experienced user.

  • Direct admin still has some issues if you compare it to Cpanel but overall the users get used to it fast, and its compatible.
    i don't like the lack of build-in modules for blesta or whmcs (compare to Cpanel) but overall it's less bloated.
    One issue DM should address is their brute force protection, is Cpanel when an account triggers the protection the account gets locked but in DM the IP gets blocked, its solved in Blesta with the Unbloc IP module but that's for providers who use more than one server or VPS.
    Another issue is the file manager which users tent to dislike.
    If you are using OVH they have quite cheap cpanel dedicated licenses and even Cheaper DM licenses.
    If you have any question reply here i will try to answer in the best of my abilites

    I have written this in another thread, but it needs to be clarified again here.

    do other control panels have Magic like ApisCP ?

    The magic comes once you price out third-party licenses that are core features of ApisCP.

    1. Softaculous ($1/month) already built into ApisCP’s Web App module.

    2. CloudLinux ($10/month) already built into ApisCP. All accounts are jailed to synthetic roots, a feature of ApisCP since its birth in 2002. Resource enforcement, just like in CloudLinux, is powered by cgroups - a native kernel feature.

    3. Immunify360 ($45/month) Malware scrubs, DDoS prevention are managed through Rampart in ApisCP. A mod_security hook filters file uploads and sends an alert to block offending IPs.

    4. MailChannels ($79/month) - or any smart-host. If you have enough servers and enough diversity in mail, ApisCP can communicate over an rspamd cluster that provides excellent spam mitigation. Clustering is a turnkey feature in Bootstrapper.

    5. WP Toolkit. Cloning, snapshots, renames, SSO, "AI updates" (a/k/a just checking page size + status codes) all inclusive.

    Regarding security, ApisCP also received a recommendation from Racks911labs https://rack911labs.ca/research/security-analysis-of-alternative-control-panels/

  • if more and more providers supports direct admin then one-day cpanel must think about their price hike.

    And then people will get the ability to go back? :)
    Big providers are still able to get cheap licenses, it seems like Cpanel was to squeeze money out from small users.

    reseller provider already switches to direct admin or providing both and tries to move direct admin by giving cheap plans.

    I do prefer some features in DA, especially their DNS.

    A few bits are missing, but I think once their pro pack comes out we will be good :)

    Similar mentality with Cpanel increasing prices, maybe not the same way but the result is the same, i would like to see GIT manager in the main license, and few of the other mentioned feutures.
