Directadmin Hosts Or Cpanel Hosts

Aug 16, 2008

Recently I stumbled along a host on here with a good rep and that uses direct admin.

Because they were very nice on the live support I signed up to see what direct admin was like.

Its very diferent from cpanel. Some parts seem to be harder to use like the phpmyadmin requires the username and password to the database you created not the control panel username and password like cpanel. Although I guess that could be a good security feature just in case some one gets into the control panel they can not get into the phpmyadmin, then again if they are smart and were able to get into the control panel they could get into ftp and look what the username and password is on the config file for the script you are using.

The bandwidth meter seems to be better in direct admin although I think its acting up for me as its putting yesterdays bandwidth on todays. I was told by the host that it updates every 2 hours and at first it did but now its gone to every day. Oh and unlike cpanel this bandwidth meter includes bandwith used by the control panel.

Niether one from what I can tell counts sftp though at least for the hosts I have right now.

Universal Hosts (uni-hosts) Two Week Mini Review

Apr 2, 2008

I was in the market for a new dedicated server after a couple of years with my previous provider. The previous provider did nothing wrong but they were no longer competitive when it came to CPU and memory.

I moved first to geekrack. And I left them after a week and a half as they never were able to get my rDNS records setup.

I found Universal Hosts on this forum and gave them a shot. I had asked for an operating system that they didn't offer normally (Debian 64 bit) and they said that they could do it. However, when my server was setup it was 32 bit Debian instead. They apologized and had Debian 64 bit setup less than 24 hours later.

When I asked them to get rDNS records setup it took a few hours but they were setup correctly and they worked.

Universal Hosts is also a BurstNet reseller but compared to my other attempt at using a BurstNet reseller they are fantastic. While the initial config was incorrect they worked quickly to fix it and were very professional about it.

So after two weeks - so far so good. Keep up the good work UniHosts!

Apache :: Virtual Hosts With Windows 8 Hosts File

Aug 11, 2013

I am running Apache2.2, PHP5.I have been running with virtual hosts on a Windows 7 environment fine for a couple of years successfully, but have just had to move to a Windows 8 environment.It looks like Apache and PHP have installed and are working fine, but my Virtual hosts are now not being recognised. From what I can tell, it is the Windows 8 hosts file that is having a problem, as it looks as though it is now just setup to Block websites.

If I make the host file just have the one line127.0.0.1 localhost entry, then the very first Virtual Host from my apache config file will come up, but the rest are not found.If I put the usual aliasname is appears as though my website works momentarily and then is blocked..

Directadmin Reseller

Apr 28, 2008

Quite simple - does anybody know of any Directadmin resellers?

Me (and my customers) are used to directadmin so that is the control panel I would like to use on my servers. However not all hosts offer directadmin, and that means I would have to get it from myself.

The main 'issue' with this is pricing. Single licenses cost $29 per month. While a reseller can get the same license for a one-time fee of $49. That means turning a profit in 1.5 months when going that way instead of single licenses.

Does anybody know of a way to buy these one-time licenses? I am aware of the fact that they do not include support, that is fine.

IP Management In DirectAdmin

Dec 12, 2008

I have 4 ip addresses. - my main server. I have also configured my main domain to "own" this IP address and have installed an SSL cert. The domain and the cert work correctly but when you type in the IP address in, it shows "Apache is functioning normally". - this is owned by a client. Same thing happens as above except that the domain name and the IP address point to the Apache message. - this is the shared IP. Everything works correctly. - this is another owned IP and it works correctly.

The only thing that is different from 146, 147

CPanel Or DirectAdmin Using 8GB RAM

Dec 5, 2008

I'm trying to decide what panel to get, I've used cPanel and DirectAdmin before so trying to figure out which is best suited for me.

Obviously cPanel has more features but uses more ram. Do I really need all the features of cPanel or can I get by using DirectAdmin?

The server I'm going to get will have 8GB RAM so does it matter that cPanel uses more memory because there is so much ram anyway?

LXAdmin Or DirectAdmin

Aug 13, 2008

which is better, LXAdmin or DirectAdmin? I have decided to sign up with They have a promo code for free DirectAdmin. Should I go for it or use the 25%off promo code? The virtualization technology used is OpenVZ.

Does anyone have any experience with them? I had chatted with a Sales Rep for 45 minutes and he has been really helpful. But I know that support for sales and service is entirely different.

Also which OS should I go for (CentOS4/CentOS5/Fedora7/Debian4/Gentoo4/OpenSuse 10/Ubuntu 8.04)?

Cpanel Vs Directadmin

Jun 3, 2007

On average, how much memory does cpanel use when compared to a standard directadmin setup?

I've never had a chance to use directadmin before, but I've been reading quite a bit about it around the web and that it uses much less memory than cpanel.

Anyone used both? Which is better for VPS hosting?

Why CPanel And Why Not DirectAdmin

Jun 22, 2007

I have been using cPanel for long and some custom panels like DreamHost and Site5 provide.

I have seen DirectAdmin a couple of times but never used it. Now my question is that:

Why we should we use cPanel instead of DirectAdmin, when:

* DA is cheaper than cPanel.

* People says DA support is better.

* DA have nearly all features cPanel have.

* DA looks prettier than cPanel.

I could be able to state more if I have been using DA.

Now, please list your REAL world reason to not use DA but cPanel. Lets keep it on topic.

My reason, as of now, is:

* Transferring site from cPanel to cPanel is easier than cPanel to DA.

I really need at least 10 reasons for not choosing DA.

DirectAdmin Domain Pointer

Jan 4, 2009

I've been trying to get some domains parked using DirectAdmin's domain pointers. I've searched for threads about this on Google, and followed the instructions. I go to Domain Pointers -> Add New Domain Pointer. I put the domain into the form field (leaving 'Create as Alias' checked) and click Add. I've waited for a few days to make sure there were no caching problems, and the domains still didn't resolve. The nameservers on my domain registrar are set correctly. I've parked domains before on CPanel and it worked just fine.

DirectAdmin Name Server Setups

Apr 2, 2009

Having some trouble with Direct Admin name server setups. This is the first time we are using Direct Admin, and we are coming from cpanel.

Here's the situation;

Since I can't ever seem to get a hold of DA's support staff till the next day, I will ask yet again; here.

I am a bit confused on how to setup the name server IP's in DA. Here is our situation...

We currently have a cpanel server, which we are migrating from to our in house DA server. On the DA server we have 5 IP's. They are as follows;

eth0 = 75.99.56.xx3 - main server IP for apache
eth0:0 = 75.99.56.xx4 - ns1
eth0:1 = 75.99.56.xx5 - ns2

I want to setup a reseller account for as it's what we have all of our customers under now. I then want to add them back under I also want the name servers to be the same for any new resellers we may add.
