    Cpanel for Windows

    Has anyone else notice it has been in development for a number of years now? I remember seeing about a year ago "90%" complete, why dont they just say "Not yet supported" or something similar.

    When do you expect Cpanel beta to come out for Windows Nick? Any dates you can throw at us would be appreciated.

    oddly enough I just sent them a sales email yesterday asking about windows too and they said it is indeed in "active development" just no dates can be set yet.

    I am curious when it does come out how many people will switch to it. I believe I will be on that bandwagon

    Personally I can't see it ever happening, but I guess I can be proved wrong.

    I dont think that cPanel will be anywhere near as stable on Windows as it is on Linux.. the software was developed in and for a Unix environment, so modding it to run on another OS wont produce good results.

    Did you even read nick's responses? It is not being modded to work from a current version to windows, it is a complete rewrite.

    Feel free to view the statement of it being completely independant of the current control panel as we know it. Hence, one of the reasons it is taking such a long time to be developed. If they wanted to release something with bugs the company name would be Microsoft...

    I've never used cpanel but I've heard it has lots of exploits, that is as big a concern for me as stablitiy

    Personally I won't go near it. I did that with Plesk 6.5 and learned the hardway to avoid any and all first release Control Panels in a production enviroment.

    Besides that I already had to make the business decision on which Control Panel to use. Unfortunately cPanel is "EXTREMELY" late to market and most of the Windows Hosting industry has already made this decision.

    There is indeed a cost associated with not being the first into the market, however, as you said, nobody wants to use a control panel that's in it's first release in a production enviorment. Proper testing, and trying not to rush a product out will pay off in the end.

    I would urge you to hold your hesitations until you actually get to see the product

    And I will still avoid it, if I decide to use it, until at least the third, or later, production release.

    No matter how well you beta test, RC Test, or more you still will end up with bugs, some of which can be major, especially on windows, in the first and second Production release.

    LOL I just noticed your signature. You are possibly a little skewed towards cPanel..maybe? Thanks for the input. Like I said I've never used it, I run Windows.

    Of course. I don't place my opinions regarding cPanel (or other hosting control panels) in any posts. I simply stated that you will find those against a product, it's natural. It's however not true that cPanel currently has a lot of vulnerabilities.

    Can't disagree with that.

    Noticed that cPanel changed status to:

    "Windows Private Alpha Testing "

    Anyone got a glimpse into it ? Any chance of participating in the alpha test ?

    Still under beta testing i do believe - it will still be a while before it will be publicly released.
