    Looking to control all of your game and voice servers from a single unified interface? Looking for open-source software that allows you to extend and customize every aspect to match your company branding? Looking for software that doesn't require you to pay for every server, and is built using modern standards? Look no further.

    Features:
    • Designed from the ground up with security in mind, we make use of BCrypt hashing, AES-256-CBC encryption, and have always supported Two-Factor Authentication out of the box. HTTPs support is also included, and it is possible for all nodes to communicate with the panel and users over secure protocols.
      • All server processes run inside Docker containers on the nodes preventing malicious users from having access to your filesystem. These containers employ a variety of different hardening mechanisms including read-only filesystems, strict resource limits (which can be changed on-the-fly), and limited networking. Only ports and IPs that you define in the panel are open for each server, so no more worrying about a user running their servers on the wrong IP or port.
      • SFTP is used rather than FTP to provide a more secure management interface. SFTP is also isolated from the main host by using a specialized Docker container. While each server has their own SFTP account, this account does not physically exist on the machine itself, only in the Docker container.
    • Design is a major factor in today's world, but all too often panels fall short by either using a poor design, or going overboard and spending more time designing their views than designing how the software should work. We've taken the middle ground and included a simple, pleasing theme that can be easily extended to match your companies branding if necessary, but can also be used out of the box and is intuitive and mobile friendly.
    • Truly live console and server statistics. Pterodactyl Panel leverages Websockets to display your server console in realtime, as well as live memory and CPU usage. No server plugins necessary, and no taxing file reads to show the log.
    • Custom designed file manager to easily edit, upload, and handle all of your files. Need to unzip a file on your server? Easy, just select the decompress option from the file manager. None of that Net2FTP stuff here.
    • Sub-Users are supported out of the box. Have a friend or two (or twenty) that you want to let access your server to manage configurations and keep an eye on the console? Easily add friends and select specific permissions that they have. Only want them to be able to view the console and make sure the server stays on but not be able to read any files? Easy as checking a few boxes. Want them to be able to help you manage other subusers on that server? Also as easy as checking a few boxes.
    • Scheduled Tasks are all the rage now-a-days, and Pterodactyl ships with a powerful command scheduler. We might not have all of the fancy scheduler gimicks that other panels have, but we support extremely configurable cron syntax, and are actively working on adding even more task options. Want your server to restart at 3:32am every third Tuesday of the month? We got you.
    • Per-Server Databases allow you to easily create a new database for a server right from the panel, and let the user control the password.
    • Easy-peasy memory, swap, disk IO, and CPU throttling and limits all from the panel, and without having to restart servers.
    • Custom designed control daemon to control servers, no need to install any plugins on your servers.
    Since everyone really just wants to see pictures:

    That's because Fishfish0001 is the original developer of PufferPanel

    We do not have an official WHMCS module, but there is a community version that someone made. There isn't any documentation currently available for it that I can find though.

    We do have a full API available in the panel as well.

    Vouch, this is truly a amazing panel! I've been using it for a month now and its amazing. They have amazing support all day from there discord. I recommend this to anyone who needs a free panel, but high quality.

    Vouch excellent panel! Love how they keep improving this panel unlike PufferPanel and how its a free panel that's better than PufferPanel! Love the fact that how this panel has a sleek and clean design along with how it has mysql support implanted in the panel itself and how you can create other services such as TeamSpeak, Terraria, Game Engine and of course Minecraft! Although 1 con that I came upon is how the bungeecord support of the panel is kinda bad but hopefully they will fix that in the future!

    Just want to reply in regards to Bungeecord that his issue was a broken Dockerfile which should be fixed in the next release, but we currently have two separate methods to make it work without issues (and require all of 30 seconds to implement). :)

    Either way this console is way better than PufferPanel and a much cheaper alternative than buying multicraft or xenopanel for all of the broke people out there.

    Nice to see a free Minecraft control panel alternative, with docker containers and SFTP it seem to be delivering more secured features than some paid for panels.

    Nice job and let hope it only get better! :)

    As part of our continued efforts to improve Pterodactyl Panel, we're embarking on a major theme overhaul to accomidate new features in the future, and set us apart from the competition. On our path to Panel@0.6.0 we're adding some major backend features and upgrading large parts of our codebase. Aside from this new theme, we're implementing an events system to allow external modules to hook into the panel without having to touch our files, as well as a much improved services system. One of the biggest changes we've made is centralizing service configuration to the panel. Nodes now connect to the panel to require updated configurations for services, allowing you to upgrade your entire herd of daemons at once with a quick reboot.
