    Hey guys,
    I want to know your opinion about DirectAdmin and CPanel.
    I personally think that DirectAdmin is more modern and better.

    What’s your opinion?

    Also Binil if possible can you support DirectAdmin?


    Cpanel has been the standard for quite some time. But other ones like direct admin and plesk have come a long way and they are good.

    Not sure that we could have Direct Admin, I don’t think that it would be that easy to move everything to Direct Admin.

    Andy, ours is a Cpanel with Litespeed Enterprise hosting – just install litespeed plugin, connect it with cdn and you will get a blazing fast wordpress site.


    In January of this year I had a chance to participate in an up to date DirectAdmin shared hosting account. I helped with beta testing it. You can check up on the BETA test reviews here:

    Prior to the test I had used DirectAdmin as a user account with a few years back. Then when I became staff at Frihost a few years later I got myself a shared hosting account with DirectAdmin with a host in Canada. DirectAdmin of course comes from Quebec Canada. At that time there were very few hosts who were using DirectAdmin. But ever since the issue with the high rates cPanel has been charging, DirectAdmin has come out of the shadows and made many improvements to its panel.

    When I tested a DirectAdmin shared hosting account in January I was totally surprised how much the panel was looking like cpanel. Almost as though it is trying to copy the same style. I think however it would have to go a very very long way to catch up with the growing technology that cpanel has invested so much in over the years. DirectAdmin is completely OK, more than OK, but for me cpanel is still that much better. Particularly WHM.
