I have used cPanel till now. Is DirectAdmin better?
Well, it's definitely more simple. I use it on my VPS to manage my personal sites and it works fantastic. It's much cheaper than cPanel
cPanel is quite robust, secure with regular updates.
CPanel is much more featured and no. 1 choice. DA is robust but not so widely used.
DirectAdmin is the fastest running control panel available. You can use it instead of cPanel.
Would you rate it better than Webmin ?
cPanel has more features than DirectAdmin, but due to the increase in pricing, many people are starting to use other panel software like DirectAdmin or Plesk.
cpanel is the best option available ( i think )
After the current Price Change, Its not. Atleast commercially.
We are offering directadmin based hosting. Yes its working great.
Lots of clients are choosing Plesk or DirectAdmin as a paid alternative. DirectAdmin is a sensible option due to lots of customizations available and Plesk Onyx is great with user interface. However, there are lots of free panels also to take into account, for example, Webmin/Virtualmin or VestaCP.
Free panels are a great option for a side project.
