cPanel alternative

Recommended Posts

I see that WHMCS is heavily integrated into cPanel and with the recent 800%+ price hike, it has made cPanel the least desirable software for web hosts. Will WHMCS adapt and offer a more suitable solution here?

If you read up on the company a bit, you will see that Cpanel has a 49% interest in WHMCS (though they've later tried to walk that back and say someone at Cpanel invested, not CP themselves). Now that they're all under one umbrella (Cpanel, SolusVM, Plesk and a bit more), anything goes. time will tell how this all pans out, but I'm very concerned, myself, and finding it hard to see this all coming out positively for us all at the receiving end.
Love to be wrong.

To answer your question, DirectAdmin is a replacement for cPanel and based on the responses from other forums things are going well.

Take a look into it or wait for the announcement that cpanel is supposedly making today.

Hi there,

WHMCS has been compatible with a range of different server control panels for many years.

I believe we have demonstrated our commitment to being panel agnostic in this time; for example our MarketConnect features are all compatible with cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin, and our new server sync tool being introduced in the upcoming v7.8 release will support cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin at launch.

In terms of adding more functionality to the DirectAdmin module,  we could potentially investigate that if we see a level of demand from our user base. At present the only active feature request relating to DirectAdmin I could locate was this: https://requests.whmcs.com/topic/login-to-clients-control-panel-from-the-admin-area

If you'd like to see particular functionality added to the DirectAdmin module, please do submit a request via https://requests.whmcs.com/

The more votes an idea receives, the more likely it is to be considered by our development team for potential inclusion in a future feature update.

In the meantime you may find a member of our community has developed a solution for this, so it would be worth searching our Marketplace: https://marketplace.whmcs.com/
