CyberPanel Control Panel Overview

Tags: CyberPanel 

CyberPanel is a relatively newer control panel available for you to download and help turn your VPS or dedicated server into an easily manageable web server. What helps set CyberPanel apart from others is that it defaults to using a version of LiteSpeed as the underlying web server rather than Apache or Nginx.

In general, LiteSpeed is a well-optimized web server, able to handle large volumes of requests with a well-designed caching system called LSCache, but typically requires an additional license to use. However, CyberPanel is available to install for free and has two editions: CyberPanel and CyberPanel Ent.

The base CyberPanel install utilizes OpenLiteSpeed for the webserver, an open-source implementation of LiteSpeed, with all features available to you.

The CyberPanel Ent. install utilizes LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise, which is free to use for one domain, but additional domains would require the purchase of a CyberPanel Enterprise license.

You can find LiteSpeed's detailed comparison between the two versions here to help determine which version of CyberPanel would work best for you.

Some of the other notable features of CyberPanel (in both editions) are as follows:

  • Let's Encrypt SSL installer to get SSL certificates for your domains easily
  • Auto-installers for WordPress, Joomla, and Prestashop
  • Git repo attachment and deployment via Git webhooks
  • Built-in DNS and email server functionalities to host your own DNS zones and email accounts
  • FirewallD and SpamAssassin management to help secure your server
  • A command-line interface to interact with CyberPanel if you only have shell access
