Kikloo provides cPanel hosting to several clients, some of whom just use the hosting account purely for personal email services. He's looking for suggestions of any readymade system available to provide email hosting only. The aim is to reduce costs by not having to spend on cPanel, Cloudlinux, Imunify360 etc. and just provide email services like webmail, POP3 and IMAP as a standalone product. Is there any software like cPanel that he can use which installs and is ready to use?

Netneurone is looking to get Nextcloud on a hosting package, and has noticed that a few shared hosting providers offer 100GB or more storage for not much more than some cloud storage providers. What he'd like to know, from a web hosting provider perspective, is why it's not advisable to use a web hosting account for storage. He assumes that this is for cloud storage rather than file sharing or file transfers. Is it simply economics (i.e. usually someone buying a 200GB package for web hosting doesn't use 200GB whereas someone buying 200GB cloud storage for actual file storage will definitely). What other restrictions or issue might he run into?
