DirectAdmin is becoming more and more popular after the industry leader, cPanel announced they would be moving to an account-based licensing system, significantly increasing the cost of the product to the point where the software now costs more than the actual equipment it runs on. We polled our users and asked them what they wanted us to do, keep cPanel and increase the price of the service or move to DirectAdmin and keep the costs of the service the same. The answer was to move to DirectAdmin. We couldn't force this change on the users that wanted to keep cPanel so we introduced a new service for our DirectAdmin customers.
Much like cPanel, DirectAdmin provides a way to manage your website in a graphical user interface (GUI) From creating Email Accounts to managing Subdomains to installing SSL Certificates. Although DirectAdmin does not currently have as many features like Jetbackup we expect that to change in the future as more and more people move away from cPanel.
