OpenPanel is a completely modular open source control panel software for ISPs (Internet Service Providers).
The OpenPanel development team has been active in programming and systems administration within ISP environments since the early 90's. This means our developers are extremely familiar with the issues you face on a day-to-day basis.
OpenPanel is being supported by PanelSix, a software company specializing in ISP automation. PanelSix is committed to continued support and expansion of the OpenPanel project. The aim of the project is to incorporate full control panel functionality under the GPL license. The open architecture should allow the open source community as well as dedicated software companies to easily add their own modules and functionality.
We started this project because we believe the ISP market is lacking a control panel that is sufficiently open, user friendly and affordable. The currently available solutions tend to have an extremely closed architecture and seem to be overpriced when taking their quality and functionality into account.
The software offers all basic hosting services for setting up domains, including DNS, email, websites and databases. A layered authentication system allows the administrator to create accounts with specified limitations for end-users. All of the system's users will be able to control system configuration using either an intuitive graphical interface or a powerful command line configuration shell.
