After multiple announcements of cPanel price increases over the last couple of years, we at VPSBG began to think about partnership opportunities with alternative control panel softwares in order to provide our customers with another option. Because of this, we are proud to announce that we are now providing DirectAdmin licences. This means that you can now purchase a licence directly from us when buying a server. Additionally, you can also get a licence separately if you have already purchased a server.

What is DirectAdmin?

DirectAdmin is a control panel software, which helps you manage your server, similarly to cPanel. In fact, DirectAdmin is considered to be one of, if not the, best alternative to cPanel. It is developed by JBMC Software and the first version of the software was released back in 2003.

How does it compare to cPanel?

In order to remain as transparent, open and honest as possible, in terms of usability and features, DirectAdmin is the same as cPanel. The software supports all popular web servers such as Apache, Nginx, LiteSpeed and OpenLiteSpeed. Furthermore, it has integrated support for both MySQL and MariDB. Widely used webmail clients like RoundCube and SquirrelMail are also supported.

On the other hand, while cPanel supports only CentOS/CloudLinux, DirectAdmin supports Ubuntu/Debian, CentOS/CloudLinux and FreeBSD.

You can find the complete list of all provided features on the official DirectAdmin website.

DirectAdmin prices

DirectAdmin has one major advantage here in comparison to cPanel and it is the fact that it is cheaper.

The prices that we currently offer for DirectAdmin licences are based on 3 different plans, which are as follows:

  • Personal - 10 domains, 1 account: 16 EUR/year
  • Lite - 50 domains, 10 accounts: 10 EUR/month
  • Standard - Unlimited number of domains and accounts: 20 EUR/month


All prices exclude VAT.

How can I order a DirectAdmin licence?

It’s really simple. You can select it as a control panel when you are configuring your high-performance server. Additionally, as we already mentioned before, if you have already purchased a server, you can get the control panel from your client area. To do this, simply navigate to the ‘Services’ tab as highlighted in the following image:
