Domain Technologie Control

Domain Technologie Control (DTC) is an open source web hosting control panel designed to deliver a graphics-oriented layout for managing commercial hosting of web servers, shared web hosting servers, virtual private servers (VPSes), and dedicated servers. Its main goal is to be the most ergonomic hosting control panel.

DTC is a set of PHP scripts and a web interface that manage a MySQL database that handles all the host information. It generates backup scripts, statistic calculation scripts, and config files for bind, Apache, qmail, and proftpd, using a single system UID/GID. With DTC, you can delegate the task of creating subdomains, email, and FTP accounts to users for the domain names they own. Integrated into DTC are the support ticket system and customizable HTTP error pages.

Domain Technologie Control allows the administrator to create web hosting plans that provide e-mail and FTP accounts, domain purchasing, subdomains, SSH, and MySQL databases to the end users under controllable quota[disambiguation needed] for the web sites that these users own. DTC also maintains the automation of billing, generates backup scripts, and monitors traffic (per user and per service) using a single system, UID or GID. Also

DTC also connects to dtc-xen to manage and monitor the usage of Virtual Private Servers (VPS).

DTC is fully skinnable and translated into several languages.
