    I know this is the answer you probably don't want to hear but there currently is no ETA on when cPanel for Windows will be available for public use.

    The cPanel for Windows team is working hard on this project and when it becomes available, we will be posting information to our website regarding the release.

    Will there be an open public beta before it will be released? Or is that not to mention yet?

    As of right now, it falls under that "not to mention yet" that you state :). As a release draws closer, we'll likely have a statement on our website regarding if there will be public testing of the software.

    yeah.. this has taken longer than expected.. I was said that it will be out in late 2006 and now we are almost in mid 2007.. however I would love to have a BETA on our server for testing..

    Looking forward to have it out soon.. and wish cPanel the best.

    Good luck on Windows development. I also would like to ask.. Will the prices be the same as cPanel for Linux? And will it have basic functionality as if it were on Linux?

    I've pretty much given up on expecting a Windows release ;)

    Because it's been "in developement" for several years now. Anyone holding their breath for a Windows version of cpanel died a long time ago.

    It will have essentially the same functionality as if it were on Linux. Just expect some "Windows-isms" like using IIS instead of Apache etc.

    As for pricing, we're still working on that internally. Ideally we would like to keep our pricing structure simple as it is now.

    At the risk of getting suckered into believing there will actually ever be a cpanel Windows version...

    ... will the DNS system for cpanel Windows work with an existing cpanel DNS cluster?

    A lot of work is being put into making sure cPanel for Windows is compatible with existing cPanel software, such as cPanel DNS-Only.

    Nice.

    I trust you guys are also negotiating special pricing with Microsoft for SQL Server? :D I still can't believe how expensive it is. But sql server and windows hosting go hand-in-hand, so MS has us by the nuts...

    This is something that is going to make my life very easy as it has been a disaster for me to cluster DNS on Linux cPanel and Windows Plesk...

    I would be very thankful to cPanel for that.

    Not really necessary because MySQL server works on Windows platforms

    It would be smart of Cpanel to stay with existing software platforms where possible
    such as Apache, PHP, and MySQL which all work just fine on Windows and doing
    that would save them a massive amount of work and leave more time to concentrate
    more problematic areas such as backend scripts and processing.

    Dave: IIS sucks! Stay with Apache! Much better server !!!!!

    (As a side note when installed on Windows, Apache will actually support ASP and ASP.NET)

    That isn't the point. If a customer requires a SQL Server database, then they are not going to be very impressed if you tell them "they can use" Mysql instead. They'll simply go somewhere else.

    Yes, I agree SQL Server is often unnecessary and mysql can do the same job (if not better!).. but that's not the point. The point is that if customers want SQL Server, then the control panel must be able to facilitate what the customers demand.

    Same point as above. yes, apache works with asp and asp.net... sortof. But there are many many customers who demand IIS for their own reasons.

    It is better not to fight against the customer. If cpanel is creating a windows control panel that doesn't work with "Windows products"... then there is not much point to use it.

    :)

    I find that the customers who would be demanding "Microsoft specific" are
    the same customers who are complete idiotic morons who end up submitting
    50 to 60 support tickets per day for everything imaginable.

    You know --- the type that drives every administrator completely insane!

    I would prefer that those kind of clients go elsewhere !!!!! :cool:
