    I would think the next big thing will be the full support of Apache 2 :cool:

    I'd like a "multi-server management system" - so if you've got a large number of cPanel servers, you can just use one to control the whole lot.

    I would have to agree with richy, I would love to have the versatility of CPanel extended to provide a single interface to manage a cluster of servers, including automated account load balancing to calculate the optimimum location to put new accounts within the cluster, dns and mail services, etc.

    And of course:

    could someone explain to me why people would want Cpanel for windows? It confuses me why anyone would want to pay a windows licensing fee, when you can run Cpanel fine on linux for free. :cool: . is there a key component windows has that linux does (other than holding monopoly on other programs).

    all 3 are being done, however all 3 are being done by different development teams. Most likely they all will come out, but not in the order you specified.

    I think I have a answer to what dan_c said...

    Yes we do need Cpanel for windows... because we understand what are the benefits of Linux server but our clients does not.. they know that windows is expensive but they are ready to pay for it..
    So I would love to have Cpanel on Our Windows server....It would be a dream come true..

    It's been like 7-8 months and cpanel has stayed the same basically... none of the things mentioned above have no beta or tests anything at all. :rolleyes:

    You just gotta be patient. cPanel has evolved quite a bit since I've had it just in the last 4+ years.

    Personally, I would like all the features mentioned but more built in security protection and find a good working cure for the nobody@hostname.com problems that doesn't involve PHP suEXEC (which I may be a total idiot on this matter but I have never had any luck with the installation of this without tons of issues popping up afterwards).

    Clustering is great.... would love that.
    But more and tighter security is above that IMHO.

    ASP.NET
    ASP.NET2
    MS SQL
    Coldfusion

    To name but a few...

    And why is it ok to chrge for CPanel/WHM and Redhat Enterprise but not ok to charge for windows???

    There are so many double standards with you anti windows people.

    Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of Linux but I also have the ability of understanding the benefits of Windows.
