What is CyberPanel? :

CyberPanel is an open source web hosting control panel powered by OpenLiteSpeed and LiteSpeedEnterprise web servers. It is available in both Free and Enterprise Editions. It is an alternative to cPanel or Plesk.

CyberPanel is a control panel used for managing VPS and dedicated servers. It is targeted towards advanced consumers, not computer experts, who want to harness powerful servers to host web-based services using a graphical interface rather than the underlying operating system's command line.
