frequently asked questions

What is DirectAdmin?
DirectAdmin https://www.directadmin.com/ is an extremely flexible, stable and fast host panel running on Linux.
How does DirectAdmin compare to cPanel?

The short answer is that it compares very favorable in most aspects. DirectAdmin https://www.directadmin.com/ is an extremely flexible, stable and fast hosting panel running on Linux. It is not as well supported as cPanel, but then again nothing is… It is much better priced with an unlimited license option.

What is the Linux Build and Web Server software that will be running my website?
Linux OS 7 with Apache 2.x
What does ttfb mean? (in website context)

ttfb stands for “time to first byte”. In context to web site page load this is a very critical statistic used by search eninges to assist in index ratings. In simple terms, it is the number of seconds (or rather hopefully part thereoff) that it takes for a web server to start delivering the first byte of data to the client opening the web page. Lower is better!

Can I also host an HTML website?

Sure.
You will be able to host any website with and .html / .htm extension.  These files should be uploaded in the public_html folder of your domain.

What version of PHP do you support.

This is a moving target, we support PHP7.4 at the time of writing and strongly recommend upgrading, should you make use of older versions.

What mail software do you support?
Exim Mail Transfer Agent with Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server. SpamAssassin for spam protection. RoundCube Web Interface.
You do daily backups of all data. How do I restore this?

You are able to backup and restore your own data in the DA panel. If you need data to be restored from an administrative level you will need to submit a written request for us to restore your data.

Can I develop my own WordPress site?

Sure!
The managed option is only for those clients who wish to leave the design, development and maintenance of the site to the professionals.
