Yikes.

We've noticed some customers moving towards DirectAdmin. What is everyone's current opinion on DA? It looks like a solid control panel.

cPanel is rolling back some of their pricing release information (especially for NOC partners).

I think they've hurt their overall image and trust in the community, but there will be plenty who stay with them.

DA seems to be one of the big places everyone is headed toward. It certainly opens the door for another control panel to come in and make a name for themselves!

THIS.

First thought of mine when the news hit. A product as good as cPanel shooting itself in the foot and leaving plenty of room for an outside opportunity. It's actually worth considering.

I don't know why there is no any good alternative. Maybe because of lack of fund.

There was good alternative like Plesk with good UI but even it was bought by same company.

DirectAdmin is good but it really need huge improvement in automation and making it more stable. Bug free.

yes as since they bought Plesk they have forced the same style price structure onto WHMCS and now cPanel.

As what cPanel are doing now plesk have always done it.

Centos Web Panel is a good free alternative to cPanel

I would suggest to move cpanel based servers to plesk with cloudlinux , almost shared hosting compenies who are having sites in thousands moving to plesk which is also good and stable control panel , although this is not a good decision I have seen hundreds of customers moving from cpanel to cwp or plesk.

Since Plesk and cPanel are owned by the same company, I'm not sure I could give that advice.

You are aware that both cPanel and Plesk are owned by Oakley Capital.

As Oakley Capital owned Plesk and then bought out cPanel, so they are moving cPanel to the same pricing structure Plesk have been using for years.

A few months into the process, and I have to say, I love what DA has done with themselves.

Sure, there are those that'll bitch about the cost ($30/month for 'unlimited sites'), but that's the cost of doing business kids.

One of the reasons I always loved DA was the customization that can be done. I love getting in there and tweaking things, getting that extra bit of performance from this or that.

Sadly, that's also one of the things they're lacking on too. No way to (easily) put subdomains outside of the public_html root by default is just a bad, bad thing..

That and the lack of server -> server transfer options is just bad all around.


Overall, since I last played with 'em, DA has made great improvements.
