Desirable Cpanel addons - what would you recommend

edited February 2013 in General

I'm looking at adding Cpanel onto my systems but I have not used it much as an admin in the past. As a customer I've usually done custom installs directly by shell, but I know I'm not the norm (maybe here but not elsewhere). I am wondering which addons people most like to see both as an admin and as a customer. This is likely to get some different answers as its mostly an opinion piece. This will be on offer for shared hosting at some point in the future.

I've already considered other panels and may offer one or two as an alternate but for certain features Cpanel is already a requirement. I'm just wondering if its worth getting some of the many addons like Softaculous, etc.

Thanks in advance for your opinion.

  • why not install Apache Booster it install Nginx + Varniash boosted speed faster then lightspeed :) http://www.prajith.in/category/apachebooster/
    Also the normal addons like AV, And CSF and Update Apache with a ton of Required modules etc.

    I prefer installatron for my shared customers, though I offer softaculous as well.

  • Anyone use (or curse) fantastico as that seems to be in the same general idea as softaculous and installatron.

  • softaculous is nice, im using it, instead Fantastico, pretty old, and dont see any interesting update.

    also you can add this addons

    Account DNS Check http://www.ndchost.com/
    ConfigServer Mail Manage http://www.configserver.com/
    ConfigServer Mail Queue http://www.configserver.com/
    ConfigServer exploit scanner http://www.configserver.com/

    and there are some more, like google aps, cloudflare,

    LogView - 3.2 http://www.logview.org/

  • there are many free addons like that one i told youp

    im looking for one to do mirror service, connect 2 servers and all be sync. not Cluster.

    and well, there is one for MX backup, but it cost some bucks 9/mo i think

  • @dedicados thanks

  • @dedicados let me know if you find the mirroring solution. I'd be interested in this as well.

  • @jbxl said: Anyone use (or curse) fantastico as that seems to be in the same general idea as softaculous and installatron.

    Using Softaculous here.

  • As a customer, I always like to see Softaculous because it makes things so easy.

    Fantastico is an outdated, overpriced, piece of crap. Softaculous has a much nicer interface, better support, cheaper, and way more scripts are added all the time.

    Thanks, I'm gonna test apachebooster! :)

    edit: tried it but varnish wouldn't startup and my webpages didn't work anymore after installing it (bad gateway). Might be because I have some other caching modules on apache installed? I couldn't find anyone with google who had the same problem though...
