Here is a list of Free Web Hosting Control Panel either with GNU GPL License or Open Source Compatible License which can run on Cloud IaaS. Some of them have dubious License, in case you are using for Commercial purpose, you must convert it to BSD Clause 2 License on your own repository and then add either Apache License or GNU GPL 3.0 License.
It is a moral crime to use a restrictive license. LGPL or more badly – no mention of License, even if the software’s source code is available on GitHub or any Public code hosting website usually points toward a danger. They might claim a huge fee for your small reseller business, even for a commercial non web hosting related website. You can read EyeOS Open Source Development Takeover by us and possibly you know that EyeOS ultimately has been sold again on 1st April this year. They used the community’s efforts for free and made money out of it. These rarely happen with F/OSS but you must be careful. There is one such vulnerable Free Software listed in this List of Open Source Free Web Hosting Control Panel. We will not mention the name, find the point we mentioned and use it. As they can not add a copyright when on Github like project, for that version; you have no legal issues.
