    Hey,

    Thanks. With so much information, I can conclude that DirectAdmin is a good choice if you have a low-configuration server and skill, but cPanel is a good choice if you intend to host client websites. cPanel is more popular among end users because of its simple interface and widely used control panel.

    Hello,

    DirectAdmin is a great option if you have a low-configuration server and skill, but cPanel is a good choice if you intend to host client websites on the server. cPanel is more popular among end users because it is a widely used control panel with an easy interface.

    Hosting is an essential component of any website, and when it comes to your hosting account, you should be aware of the best options, such as Direct Admin or cPanel accounts, and what they have to offer.

    The control panel is the second most important software choice you will make for the success of your web presence, after operating the system. While cPanel is the clear market leader, DirectAdmin is frequently regarded as the second best. It, like other control panels, has its own set of installation requirements and a few features that are not currently available in cPanel. DirectAdmin has a web-based graphical user interface that includes all of the essential features of a control panel.
    Hey,

    DirectAdmin provides three access levels: Admin, Reseller, and User. You can even add a fourth email level, which is supported by a free official plugin. Please see the table below for the features provided by each access level as well as the general DirectAdmin features.

    Benefits of Direct Administration:
    • DirectAdmin is the least expensive of the top five control panels available. Even though it is less expensive than the competition, it does not sacrifice functionality, dependability, or security.
    • It was designed to be quick and compact. The resource load is quite light. It leaves more resources for your website in restricted hosting environments.
    • DirectAdmin is known for its stability and requires little maintenance. It has very little code. It is simple to grow and maintain. Because it recovers automatically after a crash, unplanned downtime is usually minimal. Most of the time, you can change it without any downtime.
    • Usability: For a first-time user, cPanel can be overwhelming. DirectAdmin's user interface is straightforward. Three main categories keep things simple and organised: "Your account," "Email management," and "Advanced features."
    • Manual configuration: It provides most server configuration through the UI, but DirectAdmin users must configure the root shell manually. Some server administrators prefer this level of control over the root shell to cPanel's automated approach. It goes without saying that it is popular among VPS and dedicated server administrators.

    Hello,

    At first glance, DirectAdmin's File Manager doesn't appear to have as many options as cPanel's, but many of these features become accessible via tooltips that appear once you are close to select a file or directory that you got to make changes to. So, don't let the simplicity of the display fool you because the features are tucked away nicely and intuitively displayed once you need them.

    Cost should be considered along with side resources. Even before Chanel's recent price hikes, DirectAdmin was hardly an underdog. With the changes within the cPanel license costs, DirectAdmin is in an exceedingly prime position to take the lead.

    Several other factors why DirectAdmin won this comparison are :
    • 1. DirectAdmin is one of the simplest control panels and functions as a light-weight option.
    • 2. Easily build and control many web sites.
    • 3. DirectAdmin features a user-friendly admin area.
    • 4. DirectAdmin allows the acquisition of a Lifetime License that gives unlimited domain support, periodic control panel updates, and more.
    • 5. It has practically had every feature you would like to set your website on a shared website hosting.
    Before you decide on a panel, you want to know which option is best for your hosting needs. I hope all the above overviews assist you when checking out web panels to satisfy your personal or professional website management needs.

    Hello,
    • DirectAdmin and cPanel are both similar and different.
    • DirectAdmin is a graphical web-based web hosting control panel designed to make website administration simpler.
    • cPanel is a control panel that provides a web-based interface for managing your web hosting server.
    • Both panels have a clean, organised, and modern user interface. Both are relatively current and provide server and domain control through a nice, user-friendly interface.
    • However, the interface of DirectAdmin appears to be a little simpler in terms of the number of ports and access levels.
    • cPanel is designed with two distinct interfaces that operate on separate ports and serve various users with varying levels of privilege.
    • cPanel does not provide the option to handle everything in a single interface.

    Hello,

    Whether for a Linux VPS server, dedicated server, or shared hosting, two control panels now dominate the market - cPanel and DirectAdmin.

    I'll discuss the differences between cPanel and Directadmin Control Panels.

    User Interface Distinction:
    • Using cPanel in conjunction with WHM provides flexibility, power, and a plethora of options for both the front-end and back-end. As a result, the interface is more sophisticated and tougher to administer than DirectAdmin.
    • When compared to cPanel, DirectAdmin's OS interface is the simplest, and this is one of the company's primary selling factors.

    Difference in OS Compatibility:
    • cPanel is easily accessible with Linux VPS server hosting and supports Linux systems such as RedHat, CloudLinux, and CentOS.
    • DirectAdmin is more powerful than cPanel when it comes to functioning on Linux-based platforms such as Debian, RedHat, CentOS, and FreeBSD. As a result, DirectAdmin benefits those who choose Linux server hosting and provides greater support for Linux environment products.

    Functionality:
    • Both offer customised reseller hosting packages, numerous language packs, the ability to administer MySQL databases, phpMyAdmin integration, configurable spam filtering, and other features.

    PS: Directadmin is more useful than cPanel because I use it and it is simple to use and comes with a good UI and server settings.

    Which one Better: DirectAdmin or cPanel?

    Hello,

    I've been looking through both control panels. I'm aware that they are both quite similar and incredibly different. A small amount of work must be done in the root shell when using DirectAdmin. I discovered similarities between the server setup framework and the UI.

    What is the difference, in your view?
