Please help a server super noob out I just got a new host which has excellent lines and everything but that doesnt offer any commercial control panels - Directadmin, WHM etc. We were thinking of installing Kloxo but now saw that it doesnt support Centos6 which is the only centos distro we can get. Do you have any suggestions on a free CP that is easy to use (not webmin) and that works with any of these distros?
You can try "zpanel" in your server. A good opensource control panel. Its easier to manage and far better than kloxo. I recommend "Zpanel" for your cent os 6.x server. Minimum requirements for instlling zpanel server is below.

Do you need a control panel for selling hosting (including things like managing email and reseller accounts) or is it only to run websites?
