    As far as cPanel there are a couple alternatives.
    I would recommend i-mscp, zpanel, froxlor, an kloxo-mr.

    And yes in that order from best to worst depending on system requirements and setup. i-mscp and zpanel would probably be the easiest to setup. Where as Froxlor and Kloxo-MR would be the hardest.

    All due respect to whichever of these work best for you, zpanel and Kloxo anything, in my opinion, are dead to me. Consistently insecure with major functionality issues, especially when trying to run Kloxo on any newer (RHEL6) kernels. Most of the time the install hangs. I've never used I-MSCP but it reminds me of Interworx in a lot of ways. There are about five current threads on this topic, you might consider checking those out.

    Edit: I-MSCP visually reminds me of Iworx in some ways...like the shiny part.
    I've never heard anything about Froxlor. Nice for Debian enthusiests I'm sure.

    Less "clicky-clicky" and more "typey-typey".
    It pretty much installs your basic front end which lets you create things like DNS zones/http.conf/IMAP accounts, but it's not entirely automated nor does it hold anyone's hand.

    Tried zpanel on a freebsd jail, totally dissapointed.
    I won't go into detail, but for the most part - I don't like the 777 permissions they so "love" to use.

    i-MSCP is a rewritten fork of the old ispCP Omega control panel. There's actually two forks of ispCP Omega which are EasySCP and i-MSCP of which i-MSCP is the better choice. Also if you're wondering why they look familiar it's probably because ispCP Omega is originally a fork of the old VHCS Control Panel.

    That is about as frightening as the 14 year old who's advertising his hosting company on the ZP forums.

    Cpanel has also a VPS version that costs 14$/mo.
    I tried Zpanel 6 months ago and it was nice and fast with lots of addons to be installed separately and easy panel templating but i am not sure if it is secure enough.
    You could also try Webmin

    Ive check most but not webmin,
    rest of the free cp are still lacking a lot, the closest I found was interworx which is $8.

    I ended up going for a vps with free cpanel.

    I was pretty impressed with Ajenti (though, disclaimer, I only lightly tested it and didn't use it in any production way). But be aware, it's basically designed as a personal server panel for a few domains. Things like billing, hosting packages, and supporting multiple servers Ajenti doesn't do (and I'm not sure if it's on their roadmap). But for a single server, it does appear slick.

    If you run Debian, I'd suggest taking a look at DTC. It actually runs on CentOS and other systems, but its lead developer is also a Debian developer so it's one of those deals that it supports Debian "best".

    DTC is a full-blown control panel. It's free software, both in terms of "free beer" and in "freedom/liberty". As such, its documentation is not the best, and it could use some polish in some aspects of the user interface (though the UI is generally quite good).

    What amazes me is the feature set of this free software control panel. It supports multiple servers, backup MX and DNS servers, things like integration of a dynamic IP addressed machine into a domain's DNS, everything you want to do with e-mail, mailing lists, everything you want to do with web hosting (including things like web app packages), creation of hosting packages, resellers, and even things like handling Xen VPS servers (and cloud functionality is under development).

    I'm doing a pathetic job describing it and its features, but believe me it's feature rich -- doubly so for a free panel system.

    Hi, this script is not an alternative to cpanel.

    This script is more oriented to the management of a server and does not work as cpanel.

    Ajenti is an alternative to webmin.

    I installed Ajenti + vestacp and work well.

    I've also tried centimod, but does not work with Ajenti.

    Yes, DTC is listed as running on Debian, CentOS, Gentoo and FreeBSD. I've only run it on Debian, but you can query others at DTC's forums.
