    Hi,
    I currently have shared hosting with cPanel and i just got a new linux vps and now im trying to migrate. I just setup zPanel control panel which was pretty easy to install but the support forum is not much active as im having trouble finding solution to small issues related to migration from cPanal to zPanel.
    So i would like ask your recommendation based on your experience about which is the best free hosting control panel with comprehensive documentation and a live support forum. As i feel i still have time to decide for the best free control panel out there.

    Do NOT use Kloxo as suggested. Support is long ended and 0 days are readily available. Use Kloxo-MR (Google it) and it's pretty handy.

    Like users have said above webmin, virtualmin, and kloxo are good free alternatives. But really zPanel is the best for the free ones, and the issues you are finding are largely the limitations that most free control panels will have. If you're willing to spend a little money, you could consider doing something like InterWorx, which is a great cPanel alternative that you can get for under ten dollars a month from a reseller. They have an entire site full of documentation and have built an active community that is more than willing to help out.

    Wow! That is great News. I really like Zpanel and found it easy to setup and use. A few quirks but nothing that was a show stopper for my small set of websites. Are you going to start actively posting to the Zpanel forums with your updates and progress?

    If you ask me WebUzo is the #1 Control Panel for VPS server around its 99% like cPanel.
    Thehostbay offer their VPS with WebUzo installed . Personally using their VPS with Webuzo for 1 year now and I'm happy with it.. And also not using much resources !
