The DirectAdmin community has created quite a large amount of DirectAdmin-reliant 3rd-party software to date. A good bit of these programs can be hard to find, especially the ones that have no cost.

This post is a consolidated list of 3rd party software (with at least one release) collected from this forum, and categorized by the type of software. I chose not to include HOWTOs and other guides that explain how to install a generic program on DirectAdmin. Instead, this is a list of programs that in some way require DA to work. If you're looking for HOWTOs, start here.

Please note this list was created and is updated by a member of the DirectAdmin community that is in no way affiliated with JBMC Software.

If I missed your project, or you want to change how it's listed here, simply let me know and I'll fix.

How about ... skin sources, providers ? though I know they are technically not *software*, they can be hard to find in the forums.

I didn't include them here because Skins have their own forum. It's a good idea though. I'll have a look at it tomorrow.

Added Acorn and updated the Exim Editor text by request.

Regarding a skins list, I still do intend to have a look at a list of skins, but have been really busy the past few days. I'll get to it soon.

Updated NSIM.

Feel free to send me a private message or post here if anything needs added or updated.


Your footer indicates that Softaculous is free (as in beer, it seems from your site), but you do mention paid versions on your site. So I'm confused.

It also appears that you reserve the right to charge at renewal time. Does your free license have an expiration date?


Softaculous is free.
There is no renewal charges.
We were paid and from that time we shifted to Paid.
The premium licensing words couldnt be changed as that would hang up some installations of Softaculous.

Its FREE and there is no renewal fees of whatsoever!
