07 Jun, 2024

DirectAdmin is an easy-to-use and feature-rich web hosting control panel. It is designed to be a simple and convenient control panel that’s built with lots of functionality. As a hosting provider, we’ve found that DirectAdmin is an excellent choice for both our company and our clients.


Let’s talk about what makes DirectAdmin so user-friendly. The interface is clean and simple, with easy-to-use menus that make it easy to find what you’re looking for. Whether you’re an experienced user or a newbie to web hosting, you’ll appreciate how smooth and simple it is to navigate.

Powerful Features

Despite its simplicity, DirectAdmin is a powerful system. It’s a popular choice among hosting companies and individual website owners alike, and for good reason.

For hosting companies like Rovity, DirectAdmin makes it easy to manage multiple hosting accounts and servers. We can efficiently allocate resources and keep an eye on server performance, ensuring that our client’s websites are always running smoothly.

And for website owners, DirectAdmin puts you in charge. You’ll have full control over your hosting account and website. This includes features like email account setup, database management, DNS record configuration, and SSL certificate management at your fingertips. Plus, the built-in file manager makes it easy to handle your website’s files.

Security Measures

At Rovity, we’ve been using DirectAdmin for several years now, and we’ve been impressed with its robust security measures. We know how important it is to keep our clients’ hosting accounts and websites safe, and DirectAdmin helps us do just that.

Additional Features

But that’s not all – DirectAdmin is also feature-rich. It supports multiple PHP versions, allows for customizable Apache settings, and comes with a powerful Nginx server that offers caching and speed enhancements. Plus, it’s compatible with all the popular web applications you know and love, like WordPress.

So, how does DirectAdmin stack up against other control panels? Well, we think it has some pretty clear advantages. In general, it’s simpler and faster than cPanel and Plesk. It’s also more affordable, which is always a plus. And even if you’re not a tech whiz, you’ll find DirectAdmin easy to use.

We’re not the only ones who agree – our clients at Rovity have had great things to say about DirectAdmin, likewise. As India’s fastest-growing WordPress hosting company, we’re proud to offer DirectAdmin to our clients, and they appreciate how easy it is to use and how many features it offers.

Logging into DirectAdmin: A Step-by-Step Guide

Now that you know all about the awesome features of DirectAdmin, let’s dive into how you can actually log in and start using it.

Types of DirectAdmin Accounts

Before we get started, let’s talk about the different types of accounts you might have. If you’re a super admin, you’re basically the boss of your hosting setup. You’ll be able to manage different hosting accounts, adjust server settings, and keep an eye on user accounts and overall server maintenance. Pretty cool, right?

On the other hand, if you’re a hosted website owner, your main focus will be managing your own website, email accounts, and databases. Don’t worry, though – DirectAdmin makes it super easy to do all of that.

Visit the DirectAdmin Login Page

So, how do you actually access the login page? The standard way is to use port 2222. All you have to do is type in your domain followed by :2222, and voila – you’re there!

The following are some examples:


In case, port 2222 isn’t working for you, nothing to worry about. Just contact your hosting provider, and they’ll let you know what alternate port to use.

Once you’ve opened the DirectAdmin login page up, you’ll need to enter your login credentials. Your hosting company or service provider should have sent you your username and password – usually via email. If you can’t find that email, no worries – just reach out to them, and they’ll get you sorted out.

Logging In: Step-by-Step

Alright, it’s time to actually log in. Here’s what you should do:

  1. Open your favorite web browser.
  2. Enter your domain followed by :2222, just like we talked about earlier.
  3. When the login page pops up, enter your username and password in the boxes provided.
  4. Click on the Sign in button.
  5. Boom – you’re in! You should now have access to the DirectAdmin control panel, where you can manage your websites and settings to your heart’s content.
