This is a better way indeed. They have issues now due toe the enormous cPanel flow, but normally it's very good. Hopefully voters will keep this issue in mind, because this should be temporarily.
I choose 4/5 stars since some isseus on the forum are known/read but not replied to. Which is pity. Otherwise I had given them 5 stars.
I'm a newbie to DA. I have used cPanel more than 15 years . But 4 months back I moved to DA due to the high pricing of cPanel. DA license fee is very fair. Well speraking about the technical side of DA its working very smoothly and still I didn't get any major issues. They have improved the web mail interface than the cPanel. I want to give a small suggestion for DA. If you want to get more customers please attach a tool to transfer accounts from cPanel to DirectAdmin. I gave 5 stars for DA
After reading some users complaints, I understand, that selling a control panel for server is a huge task with huge responsibility. If I could turn time back, perhaps I would add that missing one star for DA staffs patience, as I don't have that much of it.
