cPanel, the truth is that every day I like the cPanel project less and the free alternatives are getting better. So unless you are committed for some MAJOR reason to cPanel I would not recommend it any more. Use any other GLP like thing from out there, if the problem is support get better support from one of the communities.

This is a small list of other possible candidates for your web hosting server administration. Not all of them GLP like, but really cheap or free:
