we have tested directadmin and it is great, now we are changing panels to all our servers. cPAnel got it all wrong, ok for the first increase for their mania of grandeur but then stop, instead they keep increasing every year, I don't understand if they are self-harming or masochistic or what. I'm sure the developers who work there don't have this mind of greatness, but their boss wants to make a lot of money, a lot of money, a lot of money. Remember big boss, who wants too much nothing squeezes and you will do that end.

I have to say that the migration from cPanel to DirectAdmin has been problem free and seamless. This is a great thing.

While leaving cPanel, may I say that their pricing model is horrendous. If they had adopted a modular pricing model where we pay for the features that we want and they had a reasonable base price, then we would have stayed.

No one should be held to ransom in this way.

So please tell me - before they delete my post - what are the best competitors to cPanel/WHM and how mature/usable are they?
What are other, neutral web forums to discuss alternatives to cPanel in case they delete this thread?
I have been using Direct Admin with great success. It has all the features I need, simple flat fee, cant stand that it matter how many accounts I have
