vHost is a one-step solution for all virtual hosting needs.
Version: 3.31r1vHost is a one-step solution for all virtual hosting needs. It enables a Linux/BSD server with single or multiple IP addresses to function as unlimited virtual hosts with HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, and other virtual services extendible via modules.
Operating System: Linux
vHost comes with both a command-line interface and a web-based GUI ("control panel"), offering maximum control to a domain's owner while relieving the system administrator of most routine administration tasks. Other major features include four levels of login, comprehensive quota control, and built-in clustering capability.
