Host a domain without CPanel or Plesk Control Panel

Posted on in Categories , , , last updated October 29, 2006

Q. How do I host a domain without CPanel or Plesk Control Panel? I am using CentOS 4.4 and I have very little knowledge of Linux command and tools (especially Apache, BIND etc).

A. If you’ve been looking for the perfect free control panel to automate your hosting Linux server needs, select ISPConfig.

ISPConfig is an open source hosting control panel for Linux. ISPConfig is licensed under BSD license.

It can manage following services:
* Httpd (virtual hosts, domain and IP based)
* FTP
* Bind (A, CNAME, MX and SPF Records)
* POP3 Auto-Responder
* MySQL client-databases
* Webalizer statistics
* Harddisk quota
* Mail-Quota
* Traffic limits
* IP-addresses
* SSL
* SSI
* Shell-access
* Mailscanner (Antivirus)
* Firewall
