Lxadmin (Kloxo) control panel

Kloxo (formerly known as Lxadmin) is a proprietary web hosting control panel. It comes in two flavors: Kloxo Host-in-a-box is a light weight solution which uses lighttpd and djbdns. Kloxo Enterprise is a multi-server hosting platform capable of managing a high number of domains and servers.

Kloxo allows the host administrators to run either lighttpd/Apache or djbdns/bind and also provides graphical interface to switch between these programs without losing any data. Additionally, Kloxo Enterprise can transparently move web/mail/dns from one server running Apache to another running lighttpd.

Kloxo comes integrated with Installapp which is a bundle of approximately 130 web applications that can be installed to the hosted websites. It also supports Installatron (a third party application installer similar to Fantastico) as a plugin.

In June 2009 K T Ligesh, the sole owner and developer of Lxlabs, was found to have committed suicide in his house. Reports of his death incorrectly linked his reasons to a potential bug in the LXLabs software that allowed an attacker to gain access, and destroy a large number of VPS accounts from VAServ. The exact way of entrance has yet to be released to the public.

It was announced on July 10, 2009 that Kloxo and HyperVM would be continued in a consortium to be formed by Arthur Thornton, Danny Terweij, and S Bhargava.
