We are using syscp and it works well. (you will need to modify it to 
suit your needs, the source code is clean and easy to modify).
Any open source software you try, it is not 100% complete (as far as I 
know, from my experience with open source web panels), so you will have 
to modify the code. The bad thing with syscp is that dns server is not 
configurable from web interface (there is a patch, but it allows you to 
modify DNS only from admin account, which is not good, I think you will 
need regular users to be able to configure their own dns servers), so 
this is one thing you must add. I asume you need 3 types of accounts, 
admin account, reseller account and user account.
