CentOs Web Control Panel

We often here about web hosting control panels like cPanel/WHM, Plesk, Virtualmin/Webmin, but we don't here about some of the less popular ones very often.

One of my favorites for testing is CentOs Web Control Panel. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles as the above-mentioned control panels, but enough to get it done for most people. Plus it's a lot less complicated and confusing.

It's available for free, and would definitely be suitable enough for a small website not needing a bunch of extra features.

It will provide you with more than enough features and access that will allow you to run multiple websites.

It's really easy to install and configure. You can potentially have a website up and running in less than 1-2 hours. If you know what you are doing and you are familiar with various control panels more like 1 hour or less.

I do like cPanel/WHM, Plesk, and Virtualmin/Webmin for the most part. However, they come with a lot of extra features the average person won't ever use, which makes them much more complex and time-consuming to configure and setup for the novice.

On one hand it's nice that they come with the more complex features, and the other if you are looking for a quick simple hosting environment they are sometimes overkill. I don't know about you, but I don't want to spend hours upon end configuring a web server. And, then wondering if some of the settings are really doing what they are supposed to do or not, or you missed something.

They are great for those that want to run a web hosting business, but not so great for someone trying to run a small, but simple website or two.

Unless you have been using cPanel/WHM for years it's probably going to be extremely overwhelming for you, and you will definitely want a hosting plan that provides additional support for situations like this.

Otherwise, you may find yourself setting something that shouldn't be or vice-versa. You might even render your server less secure than it should be.

Have a look at a cPanel/WHM, Plesk, or Virtualmin/Webmin online demo and see for yourself how complex they can be. That's assuming the demo even lets you see everything. Certain parts of the demo might be disabled for security or abuse reasons as well.

Once you get the hang of them and continue working with them they do become easier. And, there is a lot of help and tutorials out there too.

But, if you want something simple with features that you will find in the other control panels, give CentOs Web Control Panel a try. Don't forget that it can be used totally FREE as well. So, you really have nothing to lose.

Install it at Digital Ocean, or Vultr for extremely cheap and test it out.

I should mention CentOs is obviously required for CentOs Web Control Panel.
