    What's really scary about that software is that it actually has some features that cpanel does not.

    Like the ability to delete multiple accounts at once.

    It has actually improved quite a bit as of late, but like their home site says, it is not ready for production and is for experienced server admins only. Oh, yea no support exect through the forum. :D

    Well, it's free software. We all know how hard it is to have free software. Nobody pays you for support, yet all of your users expect it or get extremely mad at you. C'mon, it's free! :)

    No I do agree with you, I just thought it funny that what we pay for cannot provide the same as what is free in some cases.

    Yes, that is true... I was surprised at how good web//cp worked for the fact that it's free ... must have taken soem development.

    They're also working on a built-in billing system and everything ... that will be pretty cool. Perhaps eventually the Windows solution I'm looking for if CPanel doesn't get it together with their Windows development. Does web://cp work with Windows?

    If so, that would at least be a great temporary solution until CPanel comes out for it.

    From their site

    "It is currently being developped on a Red Hat 6.2/7.2 system, but should be compatible to any kind of Linux/UNIX systems. "

    Aww ... nothing about Windows? Is there anything comparible for Windows that's free? I don't want to buy anything, because when CPanel for Windows comes out, we'll get that right away.
