DirectAdmin is a browser-based web hosting control panel, using an advanced graphical interface built on Linux. Within the control panel, you can manage your hosting account and all its many features such as your domain names, website files, and email accounts. Technically speaking, DirectAdmin is the bridge between the hosting server and your browser as you can access all server features relevant to your website through it. DirectAdmin also secures your hosting account from third parties as only you will be able to access it.
DirectAdmin is rapidly gaining market share over cPanel in the hosting industry as it is currently the best web hosting control panel in terms of features and price.
