GNUPanel is an easy to use open source hosting control panel for Debian and Ubuntu. The goal of GNUPanel is to provide all features and functionality found in proprietary control panels while introducing easy Xen virtualization controls.

GNUPanel is written mostly in PHP 5 and runs on both 32 and 64 bit Debian and Ubuntu servers. The administrator can create public and private hosting plans, accept Paypal, CuentaDigital and DineroMail payments, send messages to users, create redirections, use an integrated support ticket system, control bandwidth, disk space and define policies for account suspension.

This tool provides the usual functions to create mail and FTP accounts, databases, directory security, and more. Additional functionality is included for domain parking and subdomain control over PHP directives including safe_mode and register_globals.

GNUPanel stores its configuration in a PostgreSQL 8.1 database and provides three web interfaces with SSL access at user, reseller and administrator level.

Despite the name, GNUPanel is not affiliated with the GNU Project.
