    Well I'm glad you said the first time around suggesting this the other week so that I moved my friends sites under mine as if the only thing they may do is use FTP if even that because I'm the one doing all the work, just more clutter than anything having separate accounts for them lol

    They will be charging for every account with a cPanel account, not every domain. The way to get around that somewhat with large numbers of domains are to set them up as add-on domains on a single cPanel account. That way, you could theoretically have hundreds of domains, but only be utilizing one cPanel account. Of course, it makes it more difficult to manage the different sites, but it does work.

    On a side note, DA introduced a personal license for $24/year...1 account 10 domains. If you need one for your VPS, that's an outstanding price. I also get the full license for $5/mo, which ain't bad either.

    Still waiting on getting the DA servers set up. Some logistical things I'm going through.

    Hey there! We are actively working on this. Your site is not deleted. It is a temporary issue at the data center. That's since been resolved.

    I'm not a host provider, but I have always loved cPanels UI. It is really nice now-a-days.
    I am actually using the Ubuntu install and Webmin though over the top of Ubuntu and really love it.
    I am not a Linux guru but more of a hobbiest, and Webmin makes installing base package, email server, etc... much easier.

    As great as cPanel is and as wonderful the interface may be... if the product isn’t affordable it isn’t worth it.

    I understand. I was only commenting about liking the interface.
    I realize Instafree great prices are going to be affected by the technologies used and price costs for operations.

    Bryan, What you need is a good stable free open source alternative, or something free or modestly priced, but DEF Stable product. That is where cPanel shines is being such a mature product.

    DirectAdmin looks really nice. ISPConfig is also really nice looking. I love Softaculous.. LOL It is like the bulging Christmas Stocking hanging over the web hosting hearth.
