HCnix vs HC9 Linux


Linux Only (Apache)

HCnix is a Linux based web hosting automation control panel which facilitates web hosts to manage multiple Web(Apache), Mail, Database and DNS servers on different GNU/Linux flavors in a cluster environment through single interface.

HC9 Linux Box

HC9 Linux

Windows & Linux (IIS & Apache)

HC9 gives its users the freedom to use any operating system (Windows/Linux) in their cluster, with only one limitation that the control/master server must have Windows servers installed and have a web-server role. This provides flexibility to manage Windows (IIS) and Linux (Apache) web servers simultaneously through a centralized single interface.

HC Database on MySQL

All Linux hosting records are stored on Linux server database (MySQL). Whereas centralized HCnix database enables web hosts to manage all Linux servers running inside the cluster from single interface.

HC Database on MS SQL Server

HC9 Linux must be part of HC9 windows panel cluster. All Linux hosting records are stored on windows server database (MS SQL Server), whereas centralized HC database gives user flexibility to access any/all servers including Windows & Linux running inside the cluster from single interface.

Independent Linux Control Panel

Windows server is not required to run HCnix.

Windows Dependent Control Panel

In order to run HC on linux server there is one limitation. You will need atleast one windows server which acts as control or master server to run along with linux machine(s).
