Hosting server control panel
AlternC is a set of shared hosting management software for Linux, easy to use, easy to install, only based on free and open-source software. AlternC itself is distributed under GPLv2+ license.
This software consists of install and configuration scripts, a control panel you can access through any browser, to manage your users and web services (domains, emails, ftp account, statistics ...)
Technically, AlternC, is currently based on Debian distribution codename Squeeze or Wheezy, and use other softwares such as Apache, Postfix, Mailman etc.
It also contains a proper class and hooks-based panel which allow you to customize the web control panel easily.
The native tongue of that project is French. However, the Debian package contains an English, Dutch and French control panel. Translations in other languages can be done easily if you help us. The documentation is currently only available in French, but a translation of it is also strongly encouraged
AlternC is developed by system administrators at Lautre Net, members of Lautre Net, and other structures and developpers among which are Koumbit, Octopuce, Neuronnexion, Webelys & many others.
AlternC 1.0 released!
le 13 June 2011
It is available in our official debian repository.
The core of this new version is the template system for domain hosting, that can be customized by the system administrator.
AlternC always wanted to be the least intrusive control panel available, and give control to the system administrator.
As a result, when you create a domain or a subdomain, a list of configuration templates are applied, depending on the available templates (with sensible defaults). You can always change anything without breaking the default behavior.
Creating templates for domain hosting is a simple, documented, extensible process. A template allows you to customize AlternC hosting features without having to go deep into the internal code.
Adding DNS entries, customize Apache rules or create CMS farms is now possible.
As usual, you can test AlternC by going to http://demo.alternc.org/ with username "admin" and password "admin" if you want to be a control panel administrator, or "demo" and "demo" to see the control panel as an end-user.
